In my opinion, for $3k you can get a few guns, all worthy of accurate shooting.
A $3000 gun does NOT shoot 10 times better than a $300 gun.

but...a 3000.00 gun will go longer before it breaks and hold its value. thats where the savings and wise investment comes in.

Wish I'd known that when I was younger...When your gun appreciates in value, it's almost like shooting for Free. ( I just like the concept !)

My friend has a Beretta Onyx 686 20GA that I got to shoot last weekend. BEAUTIFUL shooter, great looking gun and very fun! Recoil was less than my 870 20GA.

The 686 is their entry level model and considered a field gun. Wait till you try their competition models. Problem is prices have gon Nutz.

Note: All Pumps Kick - (Bobski Mantra - he can also help you w that, he tamed a model 12.)

Really hate to say it but your best odds for a good deal is when someone either dies or gets married. Either way, the guns usually go up for sale...

Beretta Red Label is back on the mkt and 20 ga is supposed to make an entrance in 2014. Ruger's 28 ga was rather wand like and late at night I torment myself for not buying one for $900 at LL Bean - their signature store no less. Lots of models to choose from and they were having a run on rugers.

Think it was B. Rizinini sp who created LL Beans signature O/U line or set of shotguns. They downsized the frame to fit the shell instead of just using a 20 ga frame. (More cost effective.)

I've added a Caesar Guerini Summit Sporting to my fleet. It's a .20 GA with 32-inch barrels. Not cheap at $3595 but not K-80 or Kolar money either. I really like Guerini shotguns. I might be alone in my love on this site but they make a nice over/under and have great customer service. I've been shooting skeet with mine and it does the job well...and looks great. Best gun I currently own.

I don't know why but when a manufacturer makes a model in another country or updates the model the value of the older model goes up overnight. I can't feel the difference in a superposed and a citori but when you buy a superposed your wallet can feel it.

I shot a Ceasar Guerini 12 ga Wendsday. It was a pretty gun. Well balanced. I am so used to shooting a 20 or 28 ga I really couldn't appreciate the gun. It was still a great day after the cold weather and a lung infection.
