I own a Beretta, 391, A 400 and an A 300. I won the A 300 at duck dinner. It is a plain Jane, black synthetic. I thought it would serve as the perfect back up shotgun to keep in camp in case my or a friends shotgun has a problem. I took it out at the beginning of this season to try out and have kept using it as my first choice gun ever since. It fits me better than my A 400, it is easier to clean than my 391, It patterns well and shoots to point of aim, it has not failed to cycle, and I have been shooting ducks and geese very well with it. It only shoots 23/4 and 3 inch shells which is fine with me since I have not ever fired or felt I needed 31/2's. (Many years ago I did some of if not my best duck shooting ever with Kent 23/4 11/16 oz. of #3's) Dicks Sporting Goods had synthetic camo, A300's for sale for $599 which was one of the best recent shotgun deals I know of. Bud's Gun Shop has them for $623. I like my A 300 so much, I am planning on selling my A 400. For anyone looking for a new gas auto, check out the A 300.
