I shot a semi automatic, the Beretta 391 for 4 years. I loved shooting the gun, just look at the clay and the gun was there! Unfortunately for me, if it can break, it will. I had a lot of breakdowns and gun malfunctions with them (I have a back up for when #1 broke)
I decided to go with the Krieghoff K80 Parcours as they are built to last and hold their value.
It has taken me a long time to adjust to the different gun, but I don’t want to go back to the Jam-o-matic! They both weigh the exact same, but the balance, feel and swing are different. I love mine and have finally started shooting it very well.
