Let's see, twice a year for five years and no problems? I shoot my Gold that much in two weeks during the teal and duck seasons.
I would expect even a $300 shotgun to be problem free for two days.
Damning with faint praise?
Wonder what its reliability record would be if it ever made it to 100 hunt days?
My advice to the OP: get the best gun you can afford. You won't be sorry.
