Oie de Etudiant: I don't care bout cash! But I guess great wealth is still cool!
Ertugrul Saykal: BERETTA SHOTGUN = PERFECT SHOTGUN.. AND VERY EXPENSİVE :D
mario schembri: i have the beretta a400 xplor at about one mount new and i am very proud for my shot gun it very fast and very light and its one of the best brand like the benelli.
tirfune: nice video , beautiful gun my friend
shootgun76: Nice shooting, i just ordered one and i was hoping to see a review rather than some clay bashing though...
Kane Jones: Very cool shotgun, that computer is helpful to keep track of how much you've shot. A lot better shotgun than my webley&scott 810.
srspower: Yes it's particularly pretty for a semi auto, thanks for watching :)
ScoobTEQ: Damn fine looking gun!
srspower: haha! Well I have many other videos, have a look around my second latest we shot 34 woodpigeons! And if your homework is giving you trouble I don't mind giving you a hint or two if I can!
calman98: Should be doing biology homework on vaccinations, instead I'm here.
srspower: Don't watch then, I don't see you doing any better.
0/Socialismo: You Brits are so F...k boring !
srspower: Yes if you do without the kick-off you might as well buy an a300 for a lot less money. But no I didn't ay there are only positive points. AS you get good at clays you will want an over and under and people will take piss out of your semi auto. Also if you want to shoot at a 'syndicate' for pheasants etc semi autos are banned.
1ducyboy: So really, as you see it, there are only positive points to buying this semi-auto? As you can tell I have limited experience in shooting and don't want to make a £1400 mistake, I will be buying a A400 Xcel and I just want the right gun, which is great to use with limited recoil. It was just the question whether the extra £80 for the kick-off was money well spent. You seem to say it is, would that be right?
srspower: No I wasn't referring to the kick off, you don't notice that at all. I was referring to the mechanical action of the breech sliding back and it chambering another round as with any semi auto. If you are used to that solid feeling of the gun being part of you the way it is with a double barrel it takes some getting used to.
And no it doesn't slide back the way you think. Any shotgun is going to give you movement against your cheek but with the kick off it is just a LOT less.
1ducyboy: thanks for coming back to me. When you say " Personally I have found they take a lot of getting used to with the mechanical movement when you shoot" - I presume your talking about the kick-off version. Tell me though, when the gun is fired and the stock recoils backwards does the stock slide against your cheek and does that bother you?
srspower: I think a lot of clay shooters prefer over and unders because it gives them more control over the swing of the gun when it fires. Personally I have found they take a lot of getting used to with the mechanical movement when you shoot. Also some clubs can be funny about semi autos because you can't show them to be safe in the same way as you can with a double barrel.
If you're going to the expense of buying a A400 then you should definitely get the kick off, otherwise why not a A300 outlander?
1ducyboy: New to clay shooting, I'm ready to make my first purchase - I like the beretta semi-autos and the a400 xcel especially. I see little point in having the full recoil - does it serve any purpose? You guys seem to know your guns and presumably have shot guns without a recoil reduction system. I will be buying the a400 but honestly, I'm really in a quandary over which version to buy, the kick-off or the non kick-off version?. Help! Would you buy the kick-off version if you were me?
