    Me too. Also like the 870 and the Mossburg pumps. Never been a Beretta fan even though I own some pistols made by them.

    nothing beats a good pump shotgun, I also have a Rem 870, and a Mossberg 500 ulti mag for turkey. I won a Benelli Nova on a gun ticket.. that is a great one too.

    Pretty dam ambidextrous bro. I’m a hot mess. Eat right handed. Write left handed. Throw a baseball left handed. Shoot guns left handed. Play golf right handed. Hit a baseball with more power right handed but I can hit left handed too.


    But on the court I can shoot with either hand. I’ve got more range deep with my right hand and shoot free throws right handed. But I’ll go left on you in blink to the rim. No way you could have guarded me back in the 90s son. :10:

    I thought about Beretta. It’s all preference of the person. But I needed an auto and Benelli is pretty dam good.

    No doubt. Benelli makes nice guns. Aren't they pricey? My dad has owned his remington model 1100 forever. Nice gun but my Beretta is lighter and better balanced. Been dove and pheasant hunting over 45 years. Wish I could total all the shotgun shells fired. It would be a huge number. What size barrel? I use 26 inch with removable choke tubes. In CA we have the stupid non lead shot rules in place now

    When I looked around I got a Browning Sporter 33. Best bang for the buck, It has the Browning adjustable shelve system which with the ability to store long guns in the door really increases storage.

    You buy the shotgun that fits. The Beretta makes the best gas operated S/A on the market, and Benelli makes the best recoil operated S/A on the market and then Browning makes some nice ones as well.

    Remington S/A guns lately have been a big flop in my area, but they made such shit for the last 20 years it doesn't surprise me the Remingtons from the early 90's and older are good guns but the quality control is shit these days.
