Over-and-Under Shotgun

Looking to buy an over-and-under shotgun for hunting and shooting trap and skeet. I've narrowed it down to:
1. Browning Citori
2. Franchi Renaissance
3. Weatherby Athena
4. Ruger Red Label

But if u have any reccomendations of other over-and-under shotguns not on my list please tell me about them in a reply.

$1500-$2500 depending on where you get it, and if you want the delux model or not. The delux is usually $300-$400 more. I think I just saw a delux at cabela's for $1899.
All the models you listed are decent. If you are concerned with price, I think the ruger will be the cheapest. If not go with what feels best. I would go to a cabela's, bass pro, sportsman's warehouse etc... and hold all of them. The ultralight is great for carring around all day if you are on a long hunt. I believe it weighs under 6 lbs loaded. It will have a little more kick because of the weight. The browning is gonna be a little heavier, so it will shoot smoother. Like I said, hold all of them and go with what feels best.

Thanks for the info

I believe the Ultralight is in my price range, and I like a lighter gun because I can hold it steadier for longer periods of time. I might go to the local gun shop this weekend and hold them like you said and maybe that will help me make my decision. I think one of the gun shops I go to has a practice range and they will let you shoot the gun before you buy it. Thanks for all the helpful info!
