Huntexplorer-The "big mouth" at the range is just spouting garbage and obviously doesn't know anything about the gun. From my personal experience as well as many others, including a 50,000 round test done in russia (read my post a few down as it is already translated into english http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=69680
, this gun has been nothing but amazing. I was frustrated at first that it wouldn't cycle target loads, but if you're only using it for hunting it will cycle any fowl hunting load out of the box pretty much guaranteed. Most of the break ins on the gun take 100 rounds, mine took 200 with some hand cycling of the action. But after all of that, without adjusting the gas setting from factory I can shoot ANY load. I can even shoot the 1 oz cheap wal-mart winchester loads!
I can tell you it's been one of the the best guns I've owned. When you take into account that I spent a little under $500 for mine camouflaged, it is EASILY the best gun purchase I've made.
My gun has been in many among the reed/in the water duck blinds, in the bottom of boats, it even was dunked deep down into the mud/water/weeds as a walking staff when I fell into a hole going after a downed bird and my waders started filling up with water, this gun hasn't quit on me and once it was broken in has never failed to fire/eject/cycle any load i've shot.
