I didn't post any threads on here asking advice about the A400 because there was enough info just doing some searching on the forum. Thanks to everyone for sharing their impressions, thoughts, and opinions about the A400... they were very helpful!
I also picked up quite a number of aftermarket chokes to try: Carlson's (BC Long Range), Wad Wizard (Supreme), Muller (Passing), Trulock (Super Waterfowl), and Kick's (High Flyer). I really want to see what can hold a great pattern out to 40-50 yards and truly see how all of these hold up against the factory chokes. Will be trying mostly Kent and BC ammos. I will make sure to post results in the next few weeks when I have them.

coupe1975 wrote:Well I just picked mine up aswell. Optafade 28 inch barrel. Can't wait to shoot it today. Heck I think I'm over excited too. I had a bad accident this past summer and ended up with steel plates and screws (3/17) in my face and haven't hunted or fired a gun since. (been afraid of rattling a few screws loose) The reduced recoil is going to be a necessity more than a convenience. I'll be posting my thoughts aswell. I'm comparing this against my 63 A5 I've been shooting before the accident . Anyhow thanks to the guys that have already posted their comments on here about the A400.

Busted out 4 teeth and well, really just screwed me up. But thanks to the A400 I'm back able to shoot.
