Which gun is the best gun for the price? Please list pros and cons to aid me in my decision.Ill be using the gun for sporting clays and dove hunting.Yes the lanber was a throw in I know it is not the gun that the bguns are but I have heard that the Lanbers were wildly popular overseas and that it was a quality gun. I would say at this moment I would use this gun 70/30 dove to sporting clays. With that said I am interested in shooting a ton more clays in the future when I get my courses set up. I would also use this gun for my high volume shoots in Argentina and Mexico next year. Also for some pheasant , quail,and chukar. I like the 30" barrels because they have the same sight picture as my beretta and remington semis. Every gun listed with minor adjustments fit me just fine but out of the box the rrl fits me the best. All these prices come out of cdnn, gunsamerica,gunbroker,and the local store I frequent. I also like the SKB's they are around $1200.00 in this area :AU

I don't know where you are finding those prices... some are REALLY low... but either way, the Beretta is the best buy on that list (are you sure you don't mean one of the 686 variants?)

The Lanber is a good gun for the money but is so out of line pricewise with the others listed it has to be a token throw in. I suppose the responses are more or less predictable but the question needs to be asked, what do you want the gun for? How intensely do you plan to use it?

I prefer the 525, but I wonder why the XT did not make the poll. They are on the market for $1900 so it fits the price range you are polling. I shoot both and I believe the 525 sporting is a little bit more than $1900 for a new one.

I voted for the Beretta, but either of the Brownings would be OK.

Stay away from the RRL. I used to have one. They are plauged with a lot of little problems. Definitely not reliable enough for a high-volume bird shoot in Central or South America.
