Liz agree in semis and the beretta A400 20 and 28 ga are incredible!….. Also light and the sticks are finally getting low enough for most shooters to shot them. We would advise AGAINST synthetic stocks as you mentioned they cannot be altered so a variety of shooters can shoot them well. The puzzling thing to us is that all of the semis out there can be altered with their shims to shoot 2 full patterns high but cannot be altered to shoot flat or low. We understand that Mosberg is coming out with a semi that can be altered too low as well as too high and it has a thin comb that will make it the most easily shot semi around. Will keep you up to date in this.
