    Charles, it’s not you. It’s the Browning. I used to own a Browning and used it not-so-much for clays but wild bird hunting. It’s funny but if you develop "a historical feel" for shooting 12 gauge predominantly – for example – you might find the Beretta – what did he call it, "…slender". Interestingly enough, I personally always found my Browning (20 gauge) felt more like a boat oar than a fine shotgun. My next gun was a Beretta 686 (entry level) and I found "the feel" and handling to be the greatest attribute compared to the Browning. The Browning was also heavier which once again, is not an endearing attribute if you walk as much as we do per day (11- 14 miles ~ 12 days in succession). The meaty-ness of a Browning is a deterrent for my personal application. That said, it could make a decent trap/skeet gun….perhaps?

    Do y’all have the Browning Cynergy over there? They have an acclaimed great action but are dumb-ugly with the odd checkering on the pistol grip. Probably do well on the ‘Continent’ with that look.

  3. William Sirman on November 23, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I have two Browning Citoris… They fit me well! Both of mine have full pistol grip stocks. One has the Lightning (28 inch) forearm, and one has the full Beavertail (26 inch) forearm. They are very solid guns, and absorb recoil much better that any Beretta that I’ve ever owned! But… to each his own!

  4. Hunts of A lifetime on November 23, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I agree with Lloyd, I have a 525 and all my buddyโ€™s shoot it they say it fits better than the 686

  5. Senior El Zappo on November 23, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Quite simple, If you enjoy strictly, wear very tight jeans, and have size 7 feet then the Beretta is the gun for you !

  6. Tim Finlay on November 23, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Who were we fighting in 41? Italians. What were we using? BROWNING.

  7. Larry Funk on November 23, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    When Mr Miroku shows up at the duel with a Beretta, I smell something fishy.

  8. Bigger Cheese on November 23, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Both of those suck get a pump or a semi auto

    Bought of you guy’s you do nice show! Congratulations!

    Brilliant and down to earth doesn’t matter wat gun you have if you like it you will hit stuff FACT ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  11. Mike Blast on November 23, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    I have a 12 gauge silver pigeon 1 field model. My wife has a 20 gauge 725 browning sport. Both are very different guns in the way they feel, handle, and shoot. At 1k more, the Browning is the fancier gun. That said, I really like them both, but probably prefer the Baretta just slightly (and that could just be the difference in gauge and heft). I’m not an expert on these things, but I’m also extremely impressed by the fit and finish of the browning, and the quality of the wood.

  12. Stephan Van Bellegem on November 23, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    i always enjoy your videos, straight to the point, keep up the good work! a big (beretta) fan from belgium.

    Can you get the cz usa sbs or under overs this side of the pond?

  14. pim1234 on November 23, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Beretta all the way !

  15. Scooter 123 on November 23, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    I have 2 shotguns that are a 100% perfect fit for me. One is a 12 gauge Browning Citori Sporting Clays Lightning. The other is a Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon III combo gun in 410/28 gauge. Also have a 686 in 20 and 12 gauge both with adjustable comb stocks that need some fine tuning for fit. While very close to fitting they are off just a bit and I’m still experimenting with the cast on the combs. Anyhow I have 1 foot firmly in the Beretta Camp and one foot firmly in the Browning camp and that wont ever change because I will never sell those perfect fits.

    I’ve had both a Browning 525 and a Beretta 686 and I couldn’t hit toffee with the browning, the Beretta fitted straight away, much smoother recoil also. Browning traded in after a month, been a Beretta user ever since, upgraded to the DT10 several years back and never needed or wanted to change.

  20. Jim Elmore on November 23, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    The Browning 725 ergonomically just fits me better. Mine just happens to shot better with Briley chokes.

  21. Harry Axford on November 23, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Where can i buy those camel trousers and that shooting vest ???

  22. Roy Clarke on November 23, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Brownings and Audiโ€™s for me ๐Ÿ‘

  23. Ned Roberts on November 23, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    I picked up a Browning Citori 325 with 30" barrels in 12g two years ago. The shotgun is pure magic. Everyone who has shot it hits, including first time shooters.

  24. Isabel Denney-Foster on November 23, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    The main difference between them is the weight between your hands. With the Browning the action is heavier and the (perceived) weight less in the stock and (particularly with fixed chokes) the barrels. the Beretta has a more even weight balance. Its not that one is wrong or one right, but that difference explains a lot of the personal preference.

  25. Kenneth Royal on November 23, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    โ€œBrowning. The best there is.โ€ They didnโ€™t lie.

  26. Drahthaar on November 23, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Beretta has purchased Holland & Holland … so you are now shooting an H&H vs a Browning ๐Ÿคฃ

  27. golfcurve7 on November 23, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    What people donโ€™t realise is that fit is paramount. Youโ€™d be very lucky to get a gun that fits exactly off the shelf. Better to go for an adjustable comb and alter the length of pull. Then whether itโ€™s Barretta or Browning you will at least start to hit things.

  28. NotALot1135 on November 23, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    The safety catch on Miroku MK38 Trap is like the indicators on a BWM: tested once at the factory and never used again.

  29. 14goldmedals on November 23, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Over the years I’ve shot American Trap with 3 different Browning Citoris. Tried a Beretta and at that time to me the action felt like a toy it was so small. Stayed with Browning. Once I held and shouldered a 725 Sporting Clays model I fell in love. The receiver is smaller than a standard Citori but feels solid and the gun points so well. I prefer mechanical triggers from shooting a Remington 3200 Special Trap model many years back. The Rem 3200 was a wonderfully comfortable design and I find the Browning 725 reminds me of that fit. I am left handed and had a laugh watching you guys.

  30. rogersofrhodri on November 23, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    go the extra mile and get a Perazzi MX2000

  31. jack poole on November 23, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Another great watch, but I love my browning…. and exactly itโ€™s not the gun if your a good shoot you will hit anything with any gun… itโ€™s a
    Long thing pointing at a target all the same ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  33. Yuma gunner on November 23, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    How about more semiautos etc. get the youngsters out crushing clays. UK etiquette is fascinating but not for younsters. Keep it up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  34. NotALot1135 on November 23, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Japanese Brownings and Mirokus have always just felt โ€œrightโ€ for me. I can shot okay with Berettas, but they just donโ€™t point nor come up โ€œrightโ€ on me. Chunky Brownings for a chunky bloke.

  35. Luke Blaney on November 23, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    If it helps Lloyd’s hold point is far out for skeet (but indicative of a sporting shooter).

  36. George Laliashvili on November 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Hi guys, great video, many thanks for that. I have quick question regarding the skeet shooting. What size of a barrel is better 71cm or 73 cm? If you could expand on it? Many thanks!!!

  37. Pistoleer 357 on November 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I have the same feeling when i pick up a Browning it just feels right, and Beretta not quite as much.

  38. tbugher62 on November 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Browning all the way,screw the Beretta.

  39. John Goody on November 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    I have to agree that the browning is a better clay gun. I have owned both the beretta 686 silver Pigeon sporter and a 692 trap and i coudnt get on with either of them, The Browning 525 Ultra pro has a better sight plain to me.The Ceaser Guerini Summit DTS and invictus DTS are so far out in front of either of them.

  40. john weyn on November 23, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Caesar guerini tempio?

  41. AZ 75 on November 23, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    What cartridges where you using please ?

  42. ausgunner on November 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    They are chalk and cheese in feel, some like slimline beretta, others the taller browning action. If comparing them dollar for dollar browning wins hands down for me, the 686 price today is well too high for what you get in my eyes

  43. KingofDeath on November 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    What were all those shooting eye aids mentioned around 9:30?? I close my left eye, mount right side but want to start shooting both eyes open.

  44. DaBoo 77 on November 23, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Been shooting for the past 30 years I own both Beretta and Browning love them both the Beretta is a little more petite slender quicker on point as a bird gun,, Browning seems to work better for me on sporting clays range.

    Audi versus BMW….

    sorry guys you can keep them both when it comes to bang for the buck I’ll stick with my Cadillac.

  45. Dale Ch on November 23, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Jonny and Lloyd – subscribe to you both for a long time now, a truly great combination of talented shooters – Lloyd is the reason I own both an ATA Sporting and a Benelli Supersport Carbon semi – and I still love them both after 2+ years shooting them both 50/50. Which do I prefer to take out?? – 55 to 45 the Benelli – it might me slightly more if cartridge shells spitting out of a semi all over the place didn’t happen and need cleaning up on every stand (woodland shoot area, with lots of ground brush) – but I still do really enjoy shooting the ridiculously under-priced and underrated ATA Sporting – cheers Guys for a great video – great banter – more please! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  48. jay Lee on November 23, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    686S (early 90’s) is one of the best guns out there, they never stay long on the market, great resale value if looked after, brilliantly made too. Browning, I’ve never felt comfortable with over beretta’s,

  49. KanonOC on November 23, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    started out on a m2 and a shul sbs. but allmost evryone else gets a 686
