I went from a stable of Perazzis from a few tricked out Urikas 391. Sold all the 391s, which was a mistake. But......Perazzi, what's not to like for NSCA Main Event sporting clay competition. Plus, all my squad was shooting them and we know how that goes.

Barrels separated on 2 of the Perazzis and I didn't have a backup that I had any confidence in. A squadmate also had shipped his Perazzi off to have his separated barrels fixed and his backup was a Fabarm XLR5 FR. I shot a round with it and really liked how it performed. Tried to buy a new one, Fabarm USA said that model had been discontinued but was replaced by a better one, the L4S.

Over time, decided to investigate the L4S Sporting model, and watched a couple of Randy Wakeman's videos and thought, he's just blowing smoke, it cannot be that good. Long story short, bought one, and after several tweaks, I found out Randy was not blowing smoke at all, and in fact, I'm probably more impressed than he was. Best auto I've ever owned, by far, and now the Perazzis are back from being repaired, and they are in the safe, backing up the L4S.

I think I better purchase another one before this inflation really sets in on guns coming out of Europe. In the the beginning, they were priced well under $1850, which is what I paid. They will go up, no doubt, as the USD continues it's downward trend against the Euro.

Just looked on Fabarm web site, and they still show the XLR-FR, but only in left hand. I have had my left hand XLR-FR for several years and love it- may be time to get a backup, especially if they will offer close out prices.

There ain’t nothing wrong with a semi auto for sporting clays. Anthony mattarese won a lot with one!

I still have my a400 xcel I’ll never get rid of it. They are great tools for shooting
