I'd take the gun hunting and pretend grandad was along.
I've used several over the years to hunt with. They are light so they can really recoil if you use heavy loads. Also they tend to be a tad light in the barrell. In short they may not swing as naturally as you were used to with your autoloader. I guess what I'm saying is for shooting still targets they are fine but for wing shooting you better pay attention to what your doing especially your follow through.
