I have had a bunch of brownings 12's and one baretta 12. Still have all the browning small ga. I have purchased but the beretta is the only 12 I still own. Both are good but the 686 just shoots like a dream for me. It really comes down to the one that fits best and shoots where you look. I have put many thousands of target rounds and hunting loads through my beretta and the browings, never a problem with any of them. The old style brownings citori models where mostly taller framed guns with higher ribs and I think they recoiled and muzzle jumped too much. The 325, 425, and so on all seamed to be stocked too long for field use and they kicked like a horse. The berettas are a lower profile frame and have a lower center of gravity or something as they don't get in my face as much with the heavy stuff. I have picked up the cynergy and it is a little different, but I haven't shot one yet. Could be just the ticket. Hard to go wrong with the quality of either one. Pick the one that point and fits the best.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
