I wouldn't trade my Remington. It would take a beating. The Beretta is great but is kinda picky for light target loads. I guess it can be since it's made for the 3.5". I'm gonna prob. pass on Greenwood friday and head else where. Gonna head out tomorrow and sneak around some more in another spot. We shall see. Oh, and to get some opinions, I'm in turmoil with my hunting buddy over weither or not to take my new dog. She's a year old yellow lab, who has the maturity of a 5 year old dog. I wasn't gonna work her much but she is, in my opinion, fairly good. Atleast she will go find um when we shoot them. She may not do a 300 yd blind retrieve but if she can see it or smell it it's hers. Now the only problem, she's almost snow white. I figured she'd be somewhat hidden or in the blind so it wouldn't stand out to bad, but what do ya'll think?? Oh no chance for a vest either. Thanks for the input. Good Luck Friday.
