Beretta’s SO-series over-and-unders are one of the world’s greatest doubles. The one you see here looks like it’s in great shape – and it has double triggers.

When it comes to grouse and woodcock guns, a lot of hunters pass over twelve gauges. That’s a shame. Twelve gauge shotguns are the most versatile doubles out there.
