    I love my browning 525 sporting. You can buy them in all 4 ga.'s. But then again their are not to many Brownings that I don't like. Break-em all. Jeff

    MX-8 is my Cadillac, but I also own a Browning 525 which is also a fine gun.

    Re: the Browning Cynergy - I shoot at a club in CT with a fellow who has one.

    It's gone back twice in as many weeks for the rubber recoil pad tearing where the "struts" are, causing the gun to slosh around all over his shoulder making it unshootable.

    After having noted that quite a few sporting shooters switched to Caesar Guerini, I tried one of their "Summit Limited " models.I liked it a lot and purchased one as well.If you have a chance to handle and shoot one, I suspect that you will be impressed as well.In the interim, you could read up on them on the web site.

    The best sporting clays gun is the Beretta Urika 391 semi-automatic. It is shot by more of the top sporting clay shooters in the country than any other gun. They include Scott Robertson, Cory Kruse, Anthony Matarese, Diane Sorrentino (though she shoots the Teknys model) Casey Atkinson, and many others. This, despite the fact that it occasionally malfunctions (like any auto) and you only have one choke for two shots.

    It cost around 1/10 of what the K and P guns cost, but is preferred by shooters who could could get one of those other guns for free if they wanted to shoot them.

    The advantages of a semi-auto is reduced recoil, identical POI's for both shots, and better visibility of the targets without two barrels to obstruct your vision. The 391 stock has replaceable shims to give some stock adjustment for height and cast. Adjustable combs and custom made stocks are available for those who want them. It cost all of $ 100 to $ 150 dollars to convert the trigger to release/release. fore-end weights, stock weights, additional recoil systems, etc. are all available.

    I too see a lot of the Beretta auto-loaders and in the hands of many of the shooters to beat. But most have implied they are just like a favorite hammer; not a prized tool....Bob Dodd

    I'm sure someone will tell me but, what is wrong with a Beretta S686 in the various grades. I have been shooting a Beretta S686 Perdiz for about 20 years and it has never given me any trouble. Hits everything I point at.

    Larry ... the only "new" Beretta sporting gun left is the 686 White Onyx which is the current entry level competition sporting clay gun for Beretta and is the only competition (non field) gun in the 686 lineup.

    It is not a bad gun at all ... I am currently debating on a 686 White Onyx or a 687 Silver Pigeon II or a 682 Gold E trap or possibly sporting clay model for myself.

    Perazzi.

    Good enough for Wendell Cherry and when Dan "the whore" Carlise had to put his own money up for a gun, he got a Perazzi.

    GN7777777, What kind of stock dimensions do you have on that K-gun that it fits for trap, skeet and SC? I use my Beretta for skeet, SC, and sometimes quail, but the dimensions are all wrong for trap. I have shot a 16 yard with it occasionally, but never in ATA competition, because of the stock fit. I wouldn't think of using any of my 4 trap guns for the other sports, wrong stock.
