Shot a Lanber, Very Impressed...

So i was at the trap range today and someone had a forsale sign on their Lanber o/u. he was asking $350. Intrigued i asked to shoot it for a few rounds. im a new shooter and shot my best score with it the first round, a 23. shot it for the rest of the day and loved it. the trigger had some work done on it and its super light. i shot it better than my nova. im tempted to sell the nova and pick it up. is $350 a decent price? its in good shape, reciever and wood in great shape, barrel blueing is pretty good too. they are fixed choke, dont know what exactly tho, full and modified maybe? (seemed tight) any suggestions would be good. using it for trap and maybe sporting clays. im a poor college student and 350 for a o/u that i loved to shoot and shot well is seeming hard to pass up.

I'd be wary of it mainly due to its having fixed chokes. For not much more you could get the 2097 w/ interchangeables. The Lanber is a great gun for the $$. I have a 2097 as well, although it's now my backup gun. While the gun you're looking at (model# ?) may appear to be a bargain, it may not take long for you to realize that perhaps you should have gone for something with a bit more flexibility. For instance, you may want to give skeet a try, and the chokes you mentioned wouldn't be optimum. Food for thought....

It's actually a very good less expensive one.

Man, you guys are getting rooked! It's a mere $2.50/round in this area! :eek:
