Most won't bring an O/U waterfowling because they think it's a price thing. They'll spend 1000 on an autoloader but a shotgun that cost 2-400 more they get qeasy.
They real reason IMHO is an overall lack of waterfowling skills. Most today think they need 3 or 3 1/2" loads. There is nothing that feels and handles as good as a O/U that fits. With 2 3/4 " loads that pattern properly and the knowledge and skill to bring birds in over the decoys there's no reason not to use an O/U

Ya they just don't seem like waterfowling guns to me.

O/U's are pimp. Out of my price range at the moment. I'd love to have one for doves though...

I own a Stoeger Condor Combo Supreme. It has both the 12 gauge and the 20 gauge barrels. It also has screw in chokes and will take 3" shells. I paid just over $600.00 for it. For the money, you can't beat it. I know it isn't a Binelli, Baretta, Browning or a Ruger, but it shoots pretty sweet for the money. I really like it. Stoeger has O/U's starting at $350.00.

I also have a Berretta 390 that I use for ducks quite a bit. The O/U seems to fit me better though. The 390 LOP is just a tiny bit longer than the Stoeger.

I have never shot a Beretta before. I heard they're pretty decent guns.

I use my Ruger Red Label, I like the ability to have two chokes to choose from before taking my shot. On real nasty days I will take my Winchester 1400 Autoloader, lately she has been jamming, I think shes pissed as she usally sits in the cabinet.
