Hello everyone, first time poster here!

After my Perazzi High Tech almost bounced the golf cart for the second time in the last 3 weeks, I decided to get a lower priced gun so I don’t die prematurely of a heart attack. I shouldered Blaser F16, Browning 725, and CG Summit before settling on Beretta 694 because it handled like my Perazzi (8.5 lbs in weight with 30 in barrels, balanced right on the hinge pin, beefy stock with good size palm swell, slim forend, barrels weighing around 1.55kg, crisp triggers).

I shot 2 rounds of clay with the Beretta this weekend and the gun did not disappoint. It swung smoothly and my score was close to my average despite the fact it was my first time shooting the gun. If it continues to function reliably, I think Beretta has come up with a major winner here - it made me forget my Perazzi HT this weekend.

I think Beretta will sell a lot of those. That is a good price point to have a strong offering.

Nice to hear about the new gun......but wouldn’t a secure gun rack, or backing off the throttle some be the easier, quicker, cheaper fix?:-)

Sounds like you have a head injury. Go directly to a doctor to get checked out.

Can't do much about the gun racks since I don't own the carts. The racks are so crummy that slowing down helps but doesn't entirely remove the risk (no other range within 60 miles of my house unfortunately).

No brain damage, Sera. Guns are tools and I simply don't have problems admitting that a 4k gun handles almost as well as my 16k gun. In fact, I think we should all be happy that we are getting high quality, lower cost options because that will push Perazzi to further improve their offers.

A soft gun slip, and some bungee cords can do wonders......

But if you’re happy dumping guns out of a cart, who are we to criticize?:-)

I’m happy with mine . That said check your stock mine came loose after a 100 rounds .
Tighten it up and good ever since.

Not when you live in the hot and humid Houston area. Another reason why I drive the golf cart as quickly as possible between stations :lol:

I dunno. The two guys I shoot with when I am in Houston walk with Rugged Gear carts as I do. My home is similarly hot and humid and the walking is still a pleasure. Of course I start first thing in the morning and wear technical clothing to stay as cool as possible.

Went out today in San Antonio and it was hot and humid. Walked the course with my bag over my shoulder carrying my A400. Worked up a little sweat but it was all good. Kept my 64 year old heart pumping. :D

I am looking really hard at a 694. I'm hung up on barrel length. I shoot a little bit of everything. I am currently shooting a Super Black Eagle 3 so this will be my first clay specific gun. Seems like everything I read suggests 32's are the new hotness. Before reading up on barrel length I was thinking 30 inch tubes. But that was based on nothing other than, "Dang, 32 inch barrels sound long!" May I ask why you chose the 30 inch model?

32” over under is about equal to a 30” auto in length .

I am very particular about gun balance and the 30 in balanced perfectly at the hinge pin while the 32 in I shouldered was a bit front heavy. I would have gone with the 32 in. otherwise.

Is being the “new hotness” a good enough basis upon which to make a decision? How about what you like to shoot?
