Buck--I did pattern it and shoot it fixed points on a cardboard sheet to see where it shoots in relation to where I am pointing. Did not shoot at clays, but the gun shoots right where I point. Pretty nice piece, overall...especially for $1149 + tax, less the 2% credit on the Cabela's card, which puts it at about $1125 + tax, +/-. Won't feel too bad actually using it and subjecting it to the dings that come along with said use. Thanks for your help!
