Actually the gun will pick you. When you snap it up ( wear your hunting coat too ) and it feels great then that's the one.

Don't forget to place the sorting hat on your head as well.. :laugh: then again who knows what you might leave with  :O maybe you're a fancy pants spanish sxs guy ???

Try them out for fit.

I have Berettas and really like them. Never a problem. Hunt and shoot a bit.

Beretta vs. Ruger shotguns...no comparison.

While everyone that shoots a shotgun has a favorite shotgun...cool heads need prevail. Beretta has almost 500 years of build history, and the 680 series has accolades from all corners of the Earth for being stout as heck, and more versatile than anything to compare. Ruger...well, the 28 is their best work...but, compared to what?

Beretta builds a 28ga. baby receiver that is too petite for me, so I bought a EELL 20ga. sporting clays gun with 30" barrels, and had 30" 28ga. barrels fitted to the 20ga. receiver...and I have my ultimate, and last upland "wand". I can touch middle finger to thumb around the middle of the receiver, and it weighs around 6 1/2 lbs...perhaps a little less. I have no interest in what a Ruger weighs, or how it shoots...it is a "one trick pony" that is seemingly...a dead horse.

Buy what is good for you now...and perhaps you will sort it out in the future. No shotgun is the end of the world...it is just another stop on the way. I found my shotguns in three Beretta O/U'ers...never shoot my Superposed guns anymore...life is too short to shoot guns that don't sing to me. FWIW.

Buona Fortuna!

Get the one that fits and you can shoot well.  Anything other than that is just window dressing.

See if you can shoot someones and get a better idea. Just because it feels good in the store doesn't mean you can hit anything with it.

Best of all he loved the fall
The leaves yellow on the cottonwoods
Leaves floating on the trout streams
And above the hills
The high blue windless skies
Now he will be a part of them forever

I love my English stock 28ga Silver Pigeon V w/ 28" barrels, it performs marvelously with valley quails & doves.  It weighs 5 3/4 lbs. It is my go to shotgun during the first half of the upland season.  My 20s takeover for the remainder of the season  (30" SP II & a couple of 29" spanish made sxs).  

I never had any problems with my Berettas (6).

Yes they did. But you can't go wrong with either gun.....
