They shoot enough that the recoil dampening features of the newer shotgun designs is a very important item. They also value reliability and durable camo finish. Thirty years ago these guys bought brand new A-5s and sanded down the finish, and re-painted them camo. Then they buffed down the bluing on the barrel and had it "browned".
I am not one of these guys.
