If you go to any major sporting clays shoot, you will find that the 391 is probably the single most popular gun, followed by a mix of Browning and Beretta O/Us, then followed by the high dollar Krieghoffs, Perazzis, Kolars, Blasers, etc.. There's a reason beyond cost for the 391's popularity; it's reliable, it balances well, and recoils less. It's just an easy gun to shoot.
Nice galleries of pics have been posted from last week's US Open (second biggest sporting clays shoot of the year): http://www.greengirl....com/f368120857
If you look through the pics, you'll see what people are shooting in major competition. I only flipped through quickly but I only saw one Benelli an one Remington semi-auto. All the other autos were Beretta 391s or 400s. Lots of Kreighoffs, Perazzis, Blasers, Browning O/Us, etc..
And yes, if you look closely, you'll find a pic of me
