My feelings about used guns remain unchanged. As I have written before, I love them. They are a deal, they have a past, and someone else has saved you the trauma of putting the first scratch on the stock. This Beretta aside, I have had very good luck with used guns. I guess the only other "bad" used gun I had was an SKB 500 that shot very high. Theoretically, the high POI was a problem; although in the field it was no problem at all and I killed a lot of birds with that gun in the short time I had it.
