Lots of hunters have gone the route of Italian guns...Bennelli,Stoeger,Berretta,etc, and claim that these guns are the best shotguns ever devised. O.K. I know the Stoeger's are cheap, but how do you justify spending $1200.00 on a bird gun when a Mossberg or a MP153 will do the job just as well,if not better. Is snobbery that much of a factor? I currently shoot a Browning A5, but the end is near for the old girl, I'm going a different gun next season. Why should I spend more than $600.00 on a goose pounder?? Give me your reasons.Try to justify big $$ on a shotgun and maybe convince the rest of us that "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
