I am buying my son a O/U for christmas. I really didn`t put a cap on cost after thinking about it for a while. We have been to gander mountain and most any other store we can get to to let him shoulder a gun. I`m very partial to brownings and beretta`s but thats beside the point. He has only liked two guns that he has tried. He has been shooting long enough to tell me what is right or wrong for him. It has came down to a winchester energy with adj comb or a beretta onyx. With him favoring the winchester. I`m no engineer when it comes to O/U design but do know the proven design of the beretta. I`m somewhat still concerned about the winchester. Guess I`m asking for reassurances and I really have only read good reports on the energy. To my dismay I can`t talk him into a browning cynergy...my favorite. I`d PLEASE like to to hear from anyone on thier opinions on these guns. THANK YOU!
