I am currently looking for a place that will let you hold and shoot top of the line semiautomatic shotguns like Benelli SBE 2, Vinci, Beretta, Browning, etc.

I would like to buy a newer top of the line sometime soon but want to be sure of the feel, fit and recoil before I make a big purchase.

Anyone in the Austin/C. TX area know of a place or have a few i can try out under your supervision? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Here's a list of Beretta dealers in the area. I think McBride's may have some range guns but I'm not certain. You also might check with any of the trap/skeet/sporting clays clubs in the area.

There is one club in austin and they don't offer rentals or range guns. I will have to check back with mcbrides.

http://www.capitolclays.com/ but don't think they have loaner or trial guns ... might give them a call. Or you might find someone in the area that has one or some of the models you are generally looking at purchasing and take them there with you to give them a try.

Copperhead Range on 1431 about 7 miles east of Marble Falls is putting in a trap, skeet, and sporting clays range that should be completed this month or in Sept. You can search them and get on their website that way. Its a very good place to shoot.
