    Looking for suggestions for a O/U for hunting. Gun needs to be 12 GA. Will be used for waterfowl and some upland hunting on occasion. Concerned more with quality than price. Thanks

    Talk about extremes - typically big barrel gauge/longer barrel vs. lighter upland/shorty. Do you need a 3" chamber? If so, that is your starting point.
    If you can get by with a 23/4" chamber, lots of options. I suppose any "sporting gun" - Browning, Beretta, Ruger would serve you well.

    I own a Weatherby/SKB that has served me well for the last 11 (Well over 15,000 rounds) years without one issue....I know allot of people on this site will bad mouth SKB/Weatherby but all you need to do is talk to the people that own and shoot them and they will tell you they are great guns for the money...I would shoot a bunch and pick which one you like....Also, if you ever do have an issue SKB service is the best in the business from what I have heard....

    Plus, to continue Fred's post, more pumps and autoloaders are available with camo finish, which adds additional protection, than over/unders.
