Well, after shooting a Beretta Semi Auto for 20 years I finally broke down and bought a Beretta over and under shotgun for Pheasant and Trap. Wow, have I ever been missing the beauty and style of shooting a fine shotgun. It's funny how a fine pipe, and a fine shotgun today made me feel like I was much wealthier LOL I know this doesn't have that much to do with pipes but it made my pipe smoking experiance nicer today. Italian Pipe, and Italian shotgun.

Understand entirely. My bro bought me a SxS Boito 20ga for Christmas. It's an entry level SxS from Brazil, but he put on a new stock and found me an old case with the Union Jack on it. I don't have it yet, but did get to shoot some skeet with it last weekend. Being a Brit, I of course prefer the SxSs to the O/Us but there ain't nothing wrong with that. We're going to shoot some more skeet this weekend. Congratulations on your fine O/U; you'll never get tired of looking at it.

Side by side is better , used to put 2 shells between my left hand fingers , shoot , break , pop shells in, when I was young I could shoot a double barrel as fast as a man could shoot a pump and 1,more shell on a legal shoot. The old cajun. PS had a over and under custom made in Turkey, did not like it cost a lot of money gave it to my son, did not shoot as good as my old Ithaca double barrel. IMHO

I agree with you Uberam3rica. There is a lot of charm in a side by side. However,a thing of beauty can always please the eye, and with a shotgun the shooting of it usually warms a heart, whether it is O/U or SxS.
