One thing I hated/hate about 1100s is the button safety mechanism under the loading gate. Have to have one hand holding it down and the other hand to load, or push it in with the brass of the shell. Don't know about anyone else but IMO it's a pain in the rear.
If you use the nose of the shell to depress the button when loading it's not a problem at all. It just needs a slightly different technique.
Beat me to it. X2, not a problem. Just start your slide from farther back. Works great.
