I’ve never been into modern shotguns. It’s not that I have anything against them, it’s just that they’ve never done anything for me, kind of like Chevy pickups and the color yellow.

If this OU is as good as it looks, it’s a steal. It’s on Gunbroker.com with a “Buy Now” price of just $895. Beretta BL-3s are the precursor to the company’s 686 line of over unders. Personally, I think they’re nicer shotguns. This one has a bit of decent engraving on it and it looks […]

Here’s a great excuse to get a another double. This Beretta BL-3 is an awesome OU and just about perfect as-is for grouse and woodcock. The Garcia Corporation imported Beretta BLs in the ’60s & ’70s. Personally, I think they’re better over-unders than the 686s and other boxlock models Beretta built afterwards. For a long […]
