Roeder6001,<P>I bought one last year. My shot ratio went from 6 shots per bird to 4 birds per 5 shots. The gun fit me right out of the box, but if it didn't it has plenty of adjustability. It feels good, is light enough to carry all day and shots streight.<P>I found out when I patterned my old 870 for turkey season that it shoots 3 inches to the left of aim...that kinda explains my ratio improvement...but still...the gun feels right. I'm a very pleased 391 owner.<P>I mostly shoot chuckar with it, but a bit of duck hunting too.<P>Nate


I like to ask question as if to make myself appear stupid...that way, I avoid all posibilities of being held responsible!

Like Nate, I bought a 391 competition trap model at a Cabela's Gun Room last year. I'm often shooting 100 rounds in an afternoon, and every year my shoulder complains a bit more... I notice the recoil, even though my trap guns weigh about 9 pounds, and all have a big Kick Eez recoil pad on the butt stock...<P>Since all of the 391s have a 3" chamber, I was hoping to also use the gun for waterfowl.<BR>Unfortunately, even with the adjustable butt stock, I couldn't get the stock down where I wanted it, and I also needed additional length. So I'm building a new buttstock, modeled on my other guns. I'm 6'2", wear an 18 1/2 - 37 shirt (2XLT), and I've had to do major stock work on all of my guns, so this hasn't been all that unexpected.<P>The recoil from the 391 is noticeably less, even though the gun is a pound and a half lighter than my other trap guns. (I immediately put a big Kick Eez recoil pad on the butt stock.)<P>I think it's a great gun, and if you're closer to average size, you will probably be able to adjust the stock for a fairly good fit.<P>Now, all you have to do is find one Good luck
