:( Sorry about your leg. That just sucks.
The 1100 is a good all around gun. I know a one person that uses it for waterfowl and is very happy. I'm guessing its a 12 ga so 2 3/4" and 3" shells with anywhere from #4 shot to BB shot will work fine depending on what your hunting. I personally use 3" shells with #2 shot most of the time for close range geese and ducks. Winchester, Kent, Remington and Federal all make good shot shells. You could always go with Hevi-shot or one of the other more expensive none toxic alternatives.
Hope you get well soon and are back to dropping ducks before long. smile.gif

I am very sorry to hear about your leg.
That's tough at any age, but at 15... I can't imagine.
You sound like a great young man, and it sounds like you've got a good attitude towards all of this.
That's very important.
Stay positive and stay focused on your goals, and you'll be back out there in no time.
The 1100 is a good gun, and you should have no problems with it.
The barrel will be stamped regarding whether it's chambered for 3" or not.
If it doesn't have 3" printed on it, it won't take 3".
If it is stamped 3", it will handle 2-3/4" and 3" shells.
I'd lead off with 2's, followed by BB's.
Give them snows He||, young man!
We look forward to hearing from you, and don't forget to post some pics of the hunt if you can!
God be with you and your family.

My dad has a 1100 3 inch chamber and is long as you keep it oiled very well then it will eject 2 3/4 shells.
Get well Soon Snow gooser

I hope you have a great trip! It'll certainly be a tough thing that you endure, but man... you're young and you have a lot of hunting to look forward to I think.
Work hard to recover and always keep a positive attitude and you'll do well in life, no matter what life throws at you. As long as you can keep your head up and enjoy life as much as possible, you'll do well.
Good luck on your hunt, it sounds like an excellent time and is definitely something I'd like to do some day.
Keep us posted man, we're thinking of you and will put in a good word with the man upstairs for everything to go as good as possible.
Knock off some feathers for me. smile.gif
