    Hey Guys, I've been shooting 7 or 8 times now with friends. Mostly shooting 12 gauge at clays. Yesterday i shot a semi auto browning 12 ga. and fell in love with it. I can't come close to affording a browning but are there any other's that you can reccommend me that are simliar in weight/accuracy/recoil. Any help would be appreciated.


    i did happen to see a remington for $400. Wouldn't mind spending a LITTLE more for something maybe a little better. (not a big fan of remington) thnx guys.:x:

    Franchi's and Stoegers use an almost identical system to the Benelli's, at a fraction of the price. They actually fit perfectly into your price range.

    dont forget to look around used too. You can find good pices on used Brownings (i am guessing the one with teh flat end where the back of the breech meets the stock?). I think they are called A-5's or something. Windchester's ive shot havent jammed up, same with the remington 1100 i shot. So dont worry about those brands.
