I don't own one, but have shot a buddy's Beretta 303 and 390 and they are sweet. However, I enjoy shooting my LH Remington 1100 for dove better than any other shotgun I have owned (Beretta 682 O/U, Rem 870, Browning BPS, Winchester Model 12, Ithaca Model 37, Ruger Red Label O/U, SKB O/U).

Which ever is reliable, fits you and you shoot well. For me that means a Browning O/U.

I used to shoot an 870 for dove. After 100+ rounds you feel like you have been beat to death. I have a Beretta 390 now and can literally shoot that gun all day long and feel good when I get off the field.

The gun didn't help me kill anymore dove though. lol.

the last couple of hunts I have been on a 410 single shot would have been too much gun...

I would go with something in a 20g. Something Light. That fits you. My self I use a Browning bps with wood stock. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I can shoot it all day and still feel great the next day. Bottom eject. Well I guess I have a thing for brownings period.

I usually do just as good with the 20 as most of my buddies with there 12s. Im also less likely to blow them to pieces.

I have 2 Brownings that were my grandfathers. One is the Sweet 16 and the other the Light 12. I normally use the 12 for dove hunting but this year shot the 16 for the first time ever. My dad has a Remington 1100 and I've always loved that gun.
