New shot gun question

Back round : I have been married for 52 years so if you consider Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases, Valentine Days and whatever else Hallmark can think of my wife and I have run out of ideas for gifts.
The problem: She who must be obeyed asked me "what type of shot gun would you like to have for Christmas, if I could spend $3000.00?"
I am partial to Over/under and currently shoot a Beretta SP1 which I like. But as everyone on this site knows you can never have too many shotguns.. I am seriously considering a Fabarm. All thoughts and ideas are welcome.

Congrats on 52 years!

A Browning over under in your fav gauge would do just fine.
Pick the model that fits your intended use, field or sporting, and choose the correct barrel length for your needs. Just like any shotgun, make sure it fits you.
Have fun choosing!

Whatever one FITS you the best, and if that means one that is over the budget, use that $3K as a partial payment.

What I would want is a tad more. Say 3400 but it would be the browning cynergy trap combo in laminate wood.

At least USED K gun territory...............and get her one as well............

Drive across to Vero and see Kemble DuPont; she took over her dad's business - largest K gun dealer anywhere.

Great Idea... I have a sister and 2 nephews that live in Vero and it is a nice drive... I'll let you know what comes of this
Thanks

If you attend one of the big shoots come February at So. Fl or Quail Creek, etc., there will be vendors who will let you demo their guns to see if you like them. I know DuPont has a try it before you buy it deal where you can try one for something like 30 days to see if you like it; and if you don't, you return it. They charge a small fee for that.
