I shot my first quail with a Browning SxS. I love the balance of that old gun. I haven't shot either other brand. The old man has two Browning SxS. I hope to acquire the 20G some day (it's a pigeon grade with the top notch wood and engraving).

I like Brownings, I'm thinking of a 20ga BPS Upland at the moment.

My experience with Brownings is limited to break-open guns. After about 25 years of competition and hunting, my opinion is they they can't be beat at any price.

I don't know much about auto-loaders since I quit using them as soon as I got my first Citori.

They are very good quality guns that fit great in your hands and shoot even better. They make some of the finest shotguns available today.

Have been shooting a Browning BT-99 trap gun for about 4 years and it's a very, very good gun. Guy I shoot with has a BT-99 he's been shooting for over 25 years and he's never had a problem with it.

Browning makes high quality shotguns in my minds. See lots of them being used for trap and skeet.

I own a Browning BPS 12ga. I have shot a Benelli montifeltro 20 ga. The Browning is a good gun for the money. The Benelli is a VERY nice gun but is a bit pricey. Don't know much about Franchi.

I have a Citori and I find it one of the most comfortable o|u I have ever used. When compared to a beretta\Daly\Franchi I find as good or better.
