what is a good over and under if you do not want to spend alot of money i know you have to fork out for over and unders so what do you think would be a good price for a good gun

I got a Mossberg Silver Reserve for Chirstmas and have shot about a case of shells through it now. I really like it. The old retired guys at the range can't believe when I tell them it's a Mossberg, because it really does look good for the price.

You can pick one up for right around $500.

Oh yeah, my one complaint is the choke tubes. I split one already, and it seems like some of the guys on this board have had similar issues with theirs.

The Mossbergs do look good. I must admitt I have never shot one or seen one yet. But whats up with splitting choke tubes?

Hmmmm that probably makes sense but something in the choke must not be strong enough or made of good enough steel.

I used a Baikal o/u 12ga. for 2 seasons. I wish at times I hadn't gotten rid of it. Its a great Desert gun as I didn't care if I scratched it, and it shot great and was light. I shot it very well. I may pick one up again used. I only payed $315 sold it for a little more than that. Check out the spartan line, by Remington, they should be the same gun.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.

i have shot a 20 ga Yildiz (available at Academy) for both dove and quail. Amazing gun for the price (under $400), points and swings really well. seems to fit most shooters too. i am 5'8 and 180, the guy the gun belongs too is 6'4 230 and we both felt comfortable shouldering the gun. removeable choks, points well, and is extremely light. But along with that light weight construction, comes more felt recoil, a full day of dove or quail and you'll remember it in the morning.
