All of that is the common justification used by 1100 shooters back in the day, but they were just the excuses for not springing for an Auto 5. All are pure BS. The positives for the 1100 over the auto 5 were in clays and sub gauges, not in a duck blind. Generally, seeing those old fallacy arguments reminds me of the continued ignorance/animus about the Auto 5. Harping on ease/need for cleaning of an 1100 vs an A5 is laughable, especially if you understand the designs/maintenance requirements of both. If you’re consciously seeing the ‘hump back’ when shooting, you should probably use some electronic dot sight with flying lead measurements in the reticle. If it’s so ‘outdated’, Cosmi and Franchi wouldn’t be still producing long recoil, and the M2 .50 wouldn’t have lasted a hundred years.
