Not $2,400.00 but it'll do.

Plunked down $575.00 for a new Beretta AL 390 today. Just like my 1911's and my Springfield XD's it fits just fine. It might not blast as many clays as a real $2,400.00 beginners gun:rolleyes:but we'll give it a whirl. Thanks to everyone for their advice and recommendations.

Best of luck, I'm sure it will be just fine. :)

It sounds like a good choice. Congrats on the new purchase and enjoy a new addiction! :D

BTW, it's funny how this sport can warp the senses. When I started, I was buying shells by the box and thought $750 for a gun was outrageous. Today, I wrote a check for nearly $1200 in shells... and those probably won't even last until the end of the year.

Great choice-should supply years of service!

Truer words are rarely spoken. What I thought was unjustifiable and outrageous ten years ago is now quite acceptable. ;)

Jim, great choice on your first gun. If you get the clay target bug you'll look back on this thread years from now and think $2,400 really isn't all that much.:D

I can hear Dave Mc over in the corner muttering shoulda gotten a 870, but great gun otherwise, not bad to start out with and a good resale gun if it does not work out...

Trapper said a mouthful!

Used to shoot a $450 gun.

Now, I spend $1000 on reloading supplies. :banghead:

Sweet Jesus!! When will it end!! :cuss:
