Hardcore waterfowlers will agree that Beretta shotguns are some of the most reliable, durable guns a hunter can own. The new A400 Xtreme Plus is perhaps the best of the bunch, and the newest version comes stacked with features that set it apart from the rest of the class. With a Kick-off stock to reduce recoil, a soft comb for a gentle cheek-weld, a step-rib barrel with mid-bead and fiber-optic front bead, large charging handle and bolt release and a Steelium Plus barrel with a whopping 14-inch forcing cone to deliver awesome patterns, this is a shotgun you need to own. Available in six different camo and synthetic stock 12-gauge offerings with 26- and 28-inch barrels. MSRP: $1,750-$1,900; beretta.com.
