    I'm looking at the Beretta over unders right now. Benelli also makes a fine shotgun. What's your budget?

    Perazzi offers 10 models within which several different models and engraving patterns are available. Pricing ranges from middle 6 figures down to what an ordinary competition gun costs. one thing is for certain weather you spend a half a million on your new Perazzi or or you spend less than $10,000 you cannot buy a finer gun at any price.

    I've never shot a perazzi, but I've handled a few $15k & up guns. They're kinda nice. Good balance :hs:

    I have a Weatherby Athena Grade V 26" 12ga. i havent shot a better gun. Perazzi is nice, but you're paying for artisanship and personalization, not accuracy, and thus not worth the cost in my opinion unless i were an olympic grade shooter (obviously am not).

    i like the stainless receiver on the Grade V compared to the all blued receivers, just in case anyone wonders why i chose to pay more for aesthetics" ;)

    you can get a Weatherby Orion GIII under $1600, or an Athena GII Field for around $2000.

    Berettas field grades will run you in the 2k range

    Ruger's Red Labels are also well under $2k for the field grades.

    none of these shotguns will get you laughed off the field or range. now buying a Perazzi and shooting like shit WILL.

    So do any of ya'll think i can get a good price for an o/u at a pawn shop??

    I haven't been to any pawn shops yet but i'm going to start looking and asking what there sales prices are and then research online see if its a fair price and the quality of the gun.

    for one, most pawn shop operators think their FFL is a license to know everything about guns, when in fact they are overpricing crap. once you buy a pawn shop gun, you will then have to pay a smith to check it out and tell you how much its gonna cost to make it safe, if that is even possible. only buy a gun from a gun shop if you are very familiar with the guns you are checking out.
    buy a field grade beretta O/U , new, trust me.

    yes, that might be one reason. i said that because pawn shops are there to make money. pure and simple. they will overcharge you and you'll never come out the winner in any transaction. i've had bad experiences with them in the past. :rant2:

    agreed. Fabram makes a great gun PERIOD. but back to topic you can get a fine Ruger red label fairly cheap. Browning are nice...$$ only go up from there...how much do you want to spend is the question.

    O/U are not old or gone, many many shooters at my club shoot with them, and for skeet and double clays, as well as sporting clays, its preferred by many. plus no hulls hitting others when shooting doubles. O/U's are great for reloaders too
