“I have shot a semi-auto for most of my shooting career and feel the Breda 930i is the perfect gun for me. The gun points well and has low recoil. When guiding clients on waterfowl hunts my gun of choice is the Breda Grizzly Waterfowl Gun. Unlike other major companies Breda is a small company with attention to detail and customer service.”   -Joey Bolton

“The Breda 930i is a premium semi-auto built for serious sporting clay shooters. I have shot semi-autos for most of my shooting career and the 930i hits targets harder than any gun I have ever shoot. The fact that the barrels are hand made in evident in the performance pattern of the Breda 930i. If you are looking for a good pointing gun with low recoil the 930i is the right gun for you. I am honored to be part of such a great brand.” – Tony Rivera

“When guiding hunts day in and day out I need a reliable gun that shoots well and is easy to clean. I consider the Breda Grizzly the best waterfowl gun on the market today. After shooting a Benelli Super Black Eagle for 15 years, I can honestly say the Breda Grizzly is a similar gun but is smoother operating and malfunctions less.”
