First, the commentators made no comments during the shoot about the quality of any of the shotguns, except the Browning. That was made during the shoot. The only thing said about the other 5 finalist's weapons was to announce the make and model and that was during the formal introduction at the beginning of the competition in Italy.
That the Browning is not on par with the Italian guns wasn't my point. It just seemed a cheap shot, pun intended, at the sole non-Italian firearm. I notice that while the Beretta Gold E is a fine gun, would anyone say it is on par with a DT-10 or DT-11. For that matter, no one compared the Gold E to the two Perazzis. I beleive both were MX2000 models.
