You haven't learned a whole lot in 84 years, have you Ned.
Performance is determined by quality.
Cost of a gun is the primary indicator of quality.
You cannot separate cost and performance, in guns, in cars, in aircraft, in pencil sharpeners.
Another personal attack without proof of what you are saying. My inexpensive 20 gage Crescent Davis SxS Cost $1.50 in 1939 and never had a malfunction and still works. I paid $75 for my 870 and never had a malfunction and still works. Same for all my guns. It's called personal care of my guns. Also I drove a Model A for 4 yrs in high school and college. It would go 60 mph wide open and I paid $50 for it. Again personal care kept it going. You could pull 3 of the spark plug wires and it would still run on one cylinder. Your posts are still subjective BS without any proof. How about all the POI problems with the Berretas, etc. You haven't owned and shot an Excell or Condor shotgun but yet you are an expert on them.

I own three Berettas an A400 Xcel sporting, a Silver Pigeon V and an Xtrema 2. Not one of them has a POI problem. Might you be perpetuating a myth without any real basis. This seems to be a case of the pot calling the kettle black. You ask Mudpack what his experience is with the Stoeger, what is your experience with the Berettas to pass such derogatory information. And by the way, the fact that you might know someone who owns a Beretta is not personal experience.
