Of course you can...you can find good ones around $500....unless you are one of those "elite" snobs who will blame a gun less than $2000 for every miss.

No I'm not one of those. Its just this summer will be the last one for awhile where I have disposable income so why not get a great instead of just good shotgun.

if you have your heart set on something in particular, then wait and get it. otherwise, you might get buyers remorse and not be truly happy with what you bought and have regrets, especially if you were not far from having the money to buy what you really wanted.

is the Citori the one you really want? i'll just about bet, you can find a really nice one if you are patient. check out that link to Guns America i posted here on this thread. check out GunBroker as well.

i am familiar with the Citori but not the Franchi. so i can't offer any insight into it. i will say this, the first time i held and shot a Citori many years ago, it was love at first sight! and IMO, they are a very beautiful gun as well.

I short clays quite a bit just out of college. I enjoyed it. I did all of my shooting with a mossberg 835. Short barrel pump...not the best option if an O/U is an option for you..but I did love to smoke the guys with the fancy O/U ....they did not like to be shown up by a kid with a pump shotgun...lol

I got the beretta 391 urika 2.... Thing is awsome.. So soft to shoot.. A little heavy at about 9lbs but I don't go hunting yet for birds.. If you do get it get the stock with the kick off system.. It's worth the extra few bucks..
