Have been wanting a "nice" over & under for quite some time now, as I really enjoy upland bird hunting. "Black Ugly" the 12 ga Beretta semi-auto works GREAT for me, but... it's not a nice over & under. Well heck, sometimes things just seem to go the right way, and I've now got a nice, older 12 ga Browning Citori that is in pretty darned good shape, with just the usual dings & dents from being hunted a bit in years gone by:

I may not shoot any better, but I'll look better while shooting...

Nice Guy. You'll look like an aristocrat when hunting birds carrying the Browning.

Very handsome OU, Guy. A wingman just feels more lethal carrying something like that. Congratulations on a great find. That wasn't a Christmas gift, was it?

Guy,
That is one of my favorites! Congratulations on a fine choice. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of Clark with the Citori and some birds.

I really like how the citori’s felt especially the older ones. Browning makes a fine OU, but I do like the ones like you have better than some of their newer stuff.

Good friend used to shoot one like that. Gave it to another friend, said he figured at 85 he wasn't steady enough to shoot trap anymore. Wonderful gesture but I gave him grief for hanging it up. Hope you enjoy it as much as the Beretta. That is a pretty piece. CL

PS- you best tell Clark to brush up on his form..... :) "we gotta look good doing it now...."

That looks more like a Sporting Clays model than a standard Citori. It has both barrels ported and the receiver is silver with gold inlays...maybe clay pigeons. My Citori had both the receiver and barrel blued with no porting or inlays.
I'd much rather have one like you have than the standard model.

That's a great choice Guy, we don't see them in the gunshop a lot as
They hardly ever cause problems, enjoy!
You should bring it back here and try it out over our Setters on Ruffed Grouse!

It is a pretty nice one from the 1980's - I say it's "Fam Dancy" :) Never had a shotgun like this before. Feel kinda self-conscious about it frankly, but it is nice. A sporting clays gun indeed, it's called the "Golden Clays" model:

It needs a little attention, but not much. I hoped to have a chukar hunt report with some game in hand, but the chukar didn't cooperate... Sigh. That's typical of wild chukar! :)

When the weather cooperates you will have to put a couple rounds at the Skeet Range and let us know how you do and if she feels like a old friend.

I've always wanted an over-under Guy but have not bit the bullet and purchased one. I liked the looks of the Ruger Red Label I believe it was called. I like the one you purchased. It's very pretty. Yes.................a gun can be pretty!

Nothing better than two barrels and two chokes on a field or sporting gun. Than there is the cool factor and great feel of a broke open gun saddled on your shoulder (barrels forward). No brass pick up ether you will get the mechanics and the hulls will just pop into your hand. Look for free shipping on flats of target ammo, B&P Competition One is pretty good stuff and cheap if you do not reload. You want STS or gun club if you were to reload a twelve. I am looking for a Beretta Silver Pigeon 12 gauge 26" field gun if I do not find a used gun I will just get the SP1 12/26" new. It will complete my set of Beretta O/U. ( these fit me)

Great gun you found there. The Brownings are very nice and strong guns as well as lookers.
