It seems to me a whole lot of people worry way too much about what the other guy is shooting. Some guys with high dollar guns look down on guys with black guns, and some guys with black guns act like they have a case of envy and are determined to "prove" themselves or their guns. As you get older and the testosterone level goes down so do these type behaviors. If you just worry about you having a gun you like, and how good you can shoot your gun life can be much less stressful.

I have a Mossberg 500C that I shoot sporting clays with. it has shot thousands of rounds without any failures, no repairs. percentage wise it's held it's value far better than your Beratta. it's actually worth more than I paid for it. If you can count the rounds you have put through a shotgun it's still new. By the way, yes, the Mossberg has been fitted to me.

My health isn't good enough to shoot five rounds of sporting clays but the barrel never gets that hot. Back in my younger days I did shoot skeet with a 500A it would easily shoot 500 rounds in a day without a malfunction. The barrel never got hot on the 12 ga either. I loved to shoot skeet so much that I had to limit myself to 16 rounds in a day. Otherwise I would have never slept trying to reload enough shells.

You seem to forget the 500A is one of the few shotguns that actually survived a military trial.

always remember, any shotgun can be used to have fun shooting clays.

but reach in your pocket, put good money on the line and bet its performance on a match, and the attitude changes.

thats when high dollar guns will shine. only then.
otherwise, if it goes bang, have all the fun you can....until your shoulder falls off.
