Re: Opinions on these Shotguns
Not that I'm trying to rebuke Rob, but most of the Turkish guns I've seen/used are actually very nice and well put together. I looked at a Weatherby 28ga recently and was very impressed with it. I purchased an Escort Magnum 20ga last summer and have yet to have a single issue with it. To boot, most of the Turkish guns come with all the chokes and shims to tune the gun. For $400 I was pleasantly surprised with everything that 20ga came with.
One thing I will warn you about is that O/U's aren't for everyone. I bought a Browning last year that I though would be my everything gun(ducks, trap and sporting clays). It felt great duck hunting, but felt awkward on the clays courses. I ended up going back to my Mod12 for trap and my 11-87 for clays. Before you jump feet first into an O/U you might want to head to a club and see if people don't mind you trying their guns first.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
