I love Citoris, but have never been able to save for one before something else catches my fancy. Save, buy a Citori, and never look back!
Citori's are nice. i remember when we use to be able to buy them years ago at the gun shows for $600-800 for really nice ones. kind of wished now i had saved a couple of them and put them in to deep storage for a couple of decades! ahhh, the good old days!

I guess what I really want is a great quality well made O/U shotgun for under $2000. I could always buy used but I'm inherently fearful of that. My coworker also mentioned a Ruger Red Label. How are those?

my personal opinion, if your gunna get an O/U get a browning citori, ive shot a few rounds with one and fell inlove with the gun. but until i can afford one of them ill stick with my remington 1100 with the 32 inch barrel

new, it might be hard to get the Browning Citori, unless you find a dealer willing to deal with you.

buying a used Citori or any firearm is somewhat risky. but most i have seen, actually a vast majority of used Citoris were in better than good condition. it's a rugged design and a well made shotgun and most people that own them general tend to take very good care of them. here's link to GunsAmerica auction listings for Citoris.

Buy what you can comfortably afford. Just about any shotgun will work fine for clays. If you get serious about the sport and shoot competetively, you can always upgrade. No matter what gun you buy, ammunition will always be the biggest investment. And since guns "rarely" lose thier value, whatever you buy now may just be something you can sell when you want to trade up. If you want to shoot, don't waste time saving up for a gun and miss the valuable shooting time...you can always upgrade later.

Dang it now I'm torn again. The problem is I can't find good quality over unders new for under $2000. So now I'm back to a semi auto which could at least serve the dual purpose of bird hunting etc. And I like the Beretta AL391 for just over $1000. Ugh decisions....
