    I have shot both on sporting clays ranges, but own neither one.

    Both seem to be well put together guns. I thought that recoil on the Red Label was a bit tough, but that was about the only negative that I could find with it.

    I liked everything about the Cynergy, except the way that it fit me, which is very important when buying a shotgun.

    I would go to the gun store and hold/point both of them, and then pick whichever one you feel fits the best. I do not think you can go wrong with either one as far as quality and reliability go.

    Good luck!

    I know the Red Label would have been my choice as well. Good for you! I hope you enjoy it!!!

    Awesome!!! Got any pictures?

    Duck hunting is one of my favorite types of hunting, but alas, I hardly ever get to do it anymore.

    Glad the gun is working out well for you!
