And you were wanting to buy a shotgun... something that would be an heirloom piece. Semi auto or o/u. What would you buy? New or gently used. I have a couple Remy 1100's already so not that particular shotgun. 20 or 12 gauge is what I am looking for.

My personal preference would be a lightly used Beretta 303, 390 or 391 in 20 gauge if for hunting...they don't show up often but when they do they are usually less than a grand . For target use I waited patiently for the right Rem. 3200, finally found one in new condition in the exact configuration I wanted and at a price lower than all the 'well used' ones I found. Patience is key for a buy like you are describing once you decide what you want.

I sold a Beretta A303 yesterday for $406 out the door. It had been hunted with, but was mechanically sound as could be. I like Benelli's, myself.

I thought he was joking... The Red Lables that I have had experience with were sweet shooting... but not sweet at ejecting. Shells would get caught under the ejectors. Very common problem with the Red Label. Not to mention that Ruger has dropped them from the line up, again...

no real heirlooms here (maybe the Citori)but all good suggestion for a nice shotgun. for your $K , a Benelli Super Black Eagle II. Arguably, The perfect do it all shotgun.

Since you said "heirloom piece" and semi-auto is in the mix, I have to go with what I know and love. You can find a very nice Browning A-5 from mid-50's to late 60's (pre-Jap manufacture) for well under that price and have money left for a nice custom case. A well cared for Belgium made A-5 is seldom outclassed wherever it's pulled out. It may be out-shot, that's up to the shooter, but it'll seldom be outclassed.

Great option Slow Drifter, those "real" A-5's are really nice and will always draw a double take from an old gun guy like me!!
