I'm looking for a nice over-under 12 Gauge shotgun between $500 and $1000. Any suggestions?

Depends on your definition of nice, but the Mossberg Silver Reserve hits your price point.

I'm not a shotgunner myself, but several of my friends have Rugers that they seem to like. I think new you'd be looking at above your price range for an O/U, but there's a big used market for them.

The guys I know with Rugers are mostly pheasant and dove hunters, not sporting clays, so YMMV.

Both Beretta and Miroku would have guns in the right price range - pre owned, if you want a new gun, you may want to look at Lanber and maybe Bettinsoli.

If this is for sporting clays - I'd suggest trying a number of guns at a gunroom that has a clay range attached - you'll know the right gun. Don't settle on a brand before you have tried a number of barrel lengths, stock style and mechanisms.

Browning makes some really nice over and unders. Is there a specific reason a pump-action won't do?

Below your price range, but I've heard good things about the Remington SPR 310. They're russian guns, made by Baikal, and not particularly pretty, but very cheap and pretty solid.
