    With dove season just around the corner, I'm investing in a new shotgun.

    Going to get a Beretta White Onyx over/under in 12 gauge. I also will use it to shoot trap/skeet/sporting clays.

    Anyone have any good or bad experiences with the White Onyx?

    THE only thing i know about Berretta, Benelli, Franchi, Fiocchi is that they are all sweet guns i`ve shot my buddies. i wish I could afford one lol. my Winchesters, Brownings and Mossbergs & Rugers are all frowning at me right now. I love the benelli super black eagle and if you are thinking about me a Xmas time go ahead and send one on over.

    i have a friend who got a barreta like that. we shot skeet with it the other day. i have an old rem. wingmaster and a mossberg turkey slayer, but after getting the feel of it. dang!! what a sweet shootin shotgun. the whole setup just felt smooth and tight. i really liked it... of course i couldnt hit the moon if it was flying across my face so i have no idea how accurately patterned it was. he seemed to be doing pretty well though.

    hope it helps.

    90 % of my hunting clients in Paraguay bring beretta 687 o/u shotguns. We do high volume shooting for pigeons and doves. Somedays 2000 shells per hunter. I have seen plenty of guns break but never a beretta o/u.

    That Beretta is one fine piece of equipment. A good investiment. Will only go up in value. It will serve both hunting and trap. Whats not to like. Nothing. Thanks for sharing.:big_smile:

    That really makes me feel better about the 687. Beretta seems to make quality stuff. I coach a trap/skeet team at school and several shooters have the Beretta autoloaders. They seem to function flawlessly.

    Thanks,

    Your not going to go wrong with that gun. I have a xtrema2 and it is a great auto gun couldn't be more pleased with it. For o/u I went with the browning cynergy just because it has adjustable stock and it fits me perfect.
