Is the Browning B-2000 a good hunting gun?
You should note that it was very rare to ever see a B-2000 in clay target competition, though Browning did make skeet and trap models. That’s never a good sign. That said, you don’t see Benellis used in top competition and they are an excellent and reliable hunting gun.
When did the Browning gold model shotgun come out?

What are the features of the Browning gold?

What kind of shotgun is the Browning Cynergy?
