I know where one of those is that has less than 2 boxes of dove shells through it. Trying to get my hands on it...

Not true. The Miroku Auto 5 magnums are some great duck guns. The original Auto 5s were made in USA. BPSs are known as some of the most reliable pump guns out there. So your wrong and even more of an idiot than FF.

WTN you just need to **** off. Come back when you are a little smarter. There is now way you could possibly think an 870 is better than any shotgun in the Browning lineup. Also I'm not from Arkansas.


The only thing browning has going for them is their bad ass Belgian Citoris and superposed. Did you know they made A5s in Belgium? Those are nice as well.

As far as Browning goes the cynergy is a far better line up than the citori. Beretta is where it's at.

You can't forget those great Perazz-Ma-Taz! :thumbsup: Although I love the beretta A400s and the 680 series of trap guns dearly.

I'm not an O/U guy, but I've found the Citoris I've shot clunky feeling, like swinging a board, rather than an extension of myself. Also, don't know if it's common or an anomaly, but a friend's Citori frequently failed to do whatever it needed to to fire a second shot if the first one was (straight?) overhead. Went back to Browning a couple or three times without remedy.

Same here. The fore end has just way to much bulk to feel "lively" in my hands. Especially when compared to Italian guns in a similar price range.

I've also never been to keen on the quality and durability of the finish on the Brownings. You pay a lot of money for a lot of flash, with fairly poor quality function.

My wife has a 1980's Browning Citori 20 ga O/U that I like OK. One nice things about Browning is that it is one of the few guns you can get with a gold trigger which is important in some circles.

Well, I shoot a 1100 with a steel shot barrel - my dad acquired it in 1964 and it goes bang every time - looking at 1100 Magnum receiver used and getting new synthetic stocks and ceracote the metal - probably cost about $600 bucks total and way less than any good semi auto out there today and probably more reliable too -

I voted "Other" as I am shooting one of the other B guns, Baikal MP-153. I love the gun and have let several other use it and everyone bought one also. :D

I just bought another H&K SBE off Gunbroker for well less than $600 and I'm sure like the 2 I already own, it will be bomb-proof

I really need to get on there more often!

Benelli M2 with a terrortube is my go to for ducks! Love the light weight and feel of the gun. Have an SBE II as a primary back up, but only if the need ever arises to shoot 3 1/2" shells........... and I haven't found that need yet :shock:
