    Should I buy another pump shotgun? I already have an 870 that I really don't use that much. I would really like the have a Browning BPS because of the way the wood stock looks. Been thinking about the Benelli Nova.

    But then again, I want a Beretta Xtrema 2 and a CZ or Browning over/under in a bad way. Just kicking the idea around.

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    I own two bps pumps. Talk about a stylish yet capable work of machinery. Double slide rails and the action is a solid brick of steel

    Not anymore. I went from a Remington 870, to a Remington 11-87, and finally a couple of years ago, I got a Mossberg Silver Reserve O/U. Although if I do get another shotgun it will be a Ruger Red Label. The Browning over/under are really nice shotguns. One of my buddy's I dove hunt with, has one. He let me shot it a couplr of times.......really nice shotgun, IMHO.

    I only have one over/under, a Red Label, so I'll offer you this advice...Shoot one before you buy, and you may find that you like your buddy's Browning better for its balance. If you get serious about buying, let me know...you are more than welcome to borrow mine for a comparison.

    One of the perks of working at a trap/skeet range when I was younger was I got to try out alot of shotguns. Favorites area Browning sporting clays model ( picked one up and shot 25 out of 25 first time shooting gun) this will be my next one I buy. Also for skeet my favorite is a Remington 1100 with a skeet barell which I have.

    Pete,
    Not serious at this time, but thanks for the offer & the advice on the comparison between Browning & Ruger O/U's.

    You're welcome.

    I'd have sold it by now, but I bought it from a friend of mine for a really, really low price...it just wouldn't feel right to sell it.

    How old is yours? I almost got one some years back, but they developed problems with the splitting forends and I didn't like the idea of having potentially two very different pieces of wood on one. I liked the looks and performance back then, but haven't been near one since. I've often thought about getting one to either just play/hunt with or just to look at since I like their clean lines. I was just wondering if you had any knowledge of these problems or if they have fixed them.
