I have a rem 1187 w/ a 21" barrel, and a 1100 w/ 30" barrel, I won't say I haven't missed any birds with the 1100 but I've missed WAY more with the 1187 due to the shorter sight plane, if you don't stay focused on the rear and front sights on the short barrel you are apt to miss, I've done it many times. I'm putting a fast fire sight on it this year to remedy, I hope.... Just something to think about

I hunted with an 1100 for a number of years. For as much as I love that gun, I have to say I do not miss the weight of a semi-auto. Think seriously about a pump. You will save weight. Repeat shots are not that big of a problem.

I started hunting with a long barrel. The 1100 is a TB Trap with a 28" barrel. I personally like a long barrel -- it may just be force of habit.

I shoot a Browning Gold 10 w/ a comp-n-choke and I shoot federal premium flight control wad shells in#6. The pattern is unbelievable. I feel comfortable shooting out past 60 yards. The only down side is the weight. It is heavy and packs a punch. My barrel is 28 inches and I would never cut it off. I've always been a stout guy so I don't mind the weight, especially after seeing how it performs!
