Beretta Silver Snipe

Picked this up today. I had one as a kid and sold it in my mid 20's, like a dumbass. Always wanted another one, but until now, I never found one that wasn't all beat up.

A super nice upland shotgun. Light, and it points like the finger of Zeus. I remember the great hunts with my dad, and my old one always performed superbly. Now I have one again. Made back in the mid '60s.

[Insert prattle here]

I had a Golden Snipe with 2 sets of barrels. Beautiful little gun and worked flawlessly. I could not hit the broad side of a barn standing inside it with that gun. Sold it to a friend for what I paid for it and never looked back. O/Us are not my cup of tea. Different strokes for different folks. Enjoy it in good health.
