    Thinking of picking up a Browning Gold Shotgun for skeet, duck, and dove.

    Pros and Cons?

    Thanks, :wavey:

    Great gun, but for the price, I'd rather get an M2.

    pricey, but every Browning I've ever owned and shot (5) has been a fantastic gun

    They seem to be going for around 1k, plus Browning has the $100 rebate from now until November so it seemed like a decent deal.

    When I shoot skeet I usually shoot around 300-400 rounds, and from what I've read online the Benellis tend to kick like a mule, which led me to look into gas operated shotguns rather than recoil.

    I've never disliked the recoil on the Benellis. I reckon you could also look at Berettas and Franchis if you want a gas gun.

    I've never shot a Benelli to feel the difference in recoil.That being said I've never shot a gun I didn't like.
