There is something about a Beretta over/under that can only be experienced when you shoot it. I have had great performance out of this gun and it is a great looking gun besides. It functions flawlessly and gives you an edge by allowing you to use multiple chokes for different situations. A lot of guys think that they would miss the third shot if they went to an over/under. I never have, not even once. I think in fact that I shoot better knowing I only have two shots. Also this gun balances and swings so nicely that it is easier to stay on target. It weights about 6.75 lbs. It has excellent engraving on both sides and the bluing is deep and rich. The gun easily breaks down for cleaning.
