I shot 150 targets and gave the 1100 a light cleaning just before the main event.
On the first two stations at the Rochester Brooks Spring Deuce sporting clays shoot I had problems with my Remington 1100. The first couple of times I'm thinking maybe a bad shell, but the third time the second shell did not fire, as the trigger did not set. The problem(s) did not repeat and I'm thinking when I get home I need to clean the trigger.
The 1100 worked flawlessly for the remaining 15 stations (a 17 station event).
Today, I removed the trigger for cleaning and......
I carry a spare in my range bag and also my traveling cleaning kit, so a replacement was on hand and an easy repair.
A few years back a lady at a trap shoot experienced a broken link and her gun ceased to function. I sold her one of my spares. As for me, I can't recall the last time I've experienced a broken link.
