wenty shotgun shopping today, what do you guys think?

well i went out and felt, and played with and pointed and etc. to find what fit me the best, and felt like an over all great pick, not to mention weight.

well i found what i liked and sure as hell felt the best over, winchester, beretta,mosberg,remmington, etc..i went threw all the brands, what i was looking for was a semi auto, i like the side by sides and over unders, but at this point in time, they dont do nothing for me.


so, the benelli line up caught my eye, and aswell as its pointing and overall weight.
its funny too, most of there line up SAYS they weigh about the same, i didnt find this to be true.

this sport II was light, and pointed dead on 9/10 times presented and was easy to flow and swing with it beinging sighted in, it comes with 5 choke tubes, and is for 2 3/4-3inch rounds.

to me its a winner, but i wanted to get some feed back.

Some things that come to mind Ken

If youre looking for a lightweight gun take a look at the Browning Gold - Fusion. It has a great feel to it and its 6.5 lbs. I shouldve bought that last Fall. Found it cheap...Im an idiot

Also.. I got a flyer in the mail from Gander Mtn today. They have their gun clearance going on right now. May want to check it out

http://www.browning.com/products/cat...11&type_id=141

I also wouldnt get a gun that only shoots 2 and 3/4" shells

well i didnt think this thread got posted cause the site was messed up, even had to edit the title, anyway,
i saw that one mike, didnt like the internals of it, and didnt point well for me at all, always wound up to high.

ill give them a call before i buy it though, i REALLY liked the sport II it had a great feel, great looks, and pointed like an extenstion of me, also too mike it takes up to 3 inch shell.


ducman..lol bro i already got an assult shotgun...speaking of which, i looked at all the new FN shotguns..nice looking peices..just dont like winchester internals.

I have a very similar Bennelli in the basement. It was my wife's first shotgun. So, I guess you just bought a girly gun.

BTW, Sweet gun. I really like the Benelli. Great action, the recoil operated operation makes it shoot very soft and it has a fast cycle time. Reacquision on the send shot is quite fast. Now that you have a real bird gun, let me know if you want to come up to the club to shoot some clays.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

bruce i didnt buy it yet..i was asking if by chance someone shot one of these owns this model or what not.

another thing i found out today is i CAN send out my barrel to have it threded, to which i can use any kind of chokes, and also still shoot slugs, all threw my mossberg 590DA assult shotgun.

its only a few hundred, but i kinda figured just buy a new one alittle normal looking for hunting, but then it gets me thinking, why not just modify my mossberg, to do it all?

i still can shot criminals, still use it for bird hunting, cause of the chokes for proper groups at longer shots (other then CQB) and then down the line, when i feel really pimping, and find something exotic, maybe get an overunder, with some NICE scrolling and gold inlays..for like fancy man shit.

Ken,

I'm partial to Remmington's and Brownings, I say stop screwing around buy yourself a really nice over/under, YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS We should really do a sporting clays day at Northbrook SC or Winchester SC. I will drag out ALL my shotguns you can try them, make an informed decision. And just a little info, I have knock down way more birds with a 2 3/4 shell that with a 3 incher. What happens with peeps shooting 3's is they think they can shoot at ducks and geese further out, so they end up cloud busting, instead of learn out to call them in and the importance of a good decoy lay out, hunting from a blind is all about set up and patience.

Rick

PS the only time 3" goes into my 870, is with a turkey choke for turkey hunting, and the sonofabitch kicks like a mule

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Ken, Do not modify your duty weapon! Way too many variables to deal with and mental notes will be required all the time!

Besides would'nt you just rather enlarge your inventory?
I know the wifey would love to have you do that!

I have to agree with Rick and lets do a clay shoot and take him up on the offer of trying out the various shotguns. what you "feel" and what you really feel in recoil, operation, and live fire could be a major difference. Which i know you know that already buy if you shoot one of ricks that you like and he might let you utilize that particular one in a hunt.

Then there would be no question!

Good luck.

I am all for a sporting clays day where yall bring all your guns. I want to get another shot gun also.

Ken I've always read good things about the Bennellis but I've never shot one.

ya cant even buy the PSG1 anymore, its valued around 12g's if i remember correctly.

never the less hold on to that puppy.

and rick, sounds like a plan, but still, felt recoil means nothing to this bad ass...hehehehhehee

i was up to 4am reading differant shotgun websites, and maybe read 100's of pages, and not 1 problem with the sport II people liked it over the beretta, faster cycle time, slimmer, and less cleaning "even though that doesnt mattter to me i always clean weither its 1 shot or a 1000"

over all no one regrets buying it, and alot of people have shot both, or own both the sportII and the l390? beretta the other one i was looking at closly.


i am gonna go look around some more today, already went to 2 gun shops mega, and the gun shop, now off to gander and bass pro.

so see ya guys later....i try not to buy right away, i also got my eye on a ruger 480 pistol, shot it yesterday OUCH! big gun bug round, not all that bad, but the webbing by my thumb killed gotta do something about that grip, so i gotta check into that before i buy that 480.

for bore hunting if your asking yourself why.

Ken...DONT mod your Mossberg any more. That DA trigger pull is way to awkward for hunting/ clays. Do you really want a semi? Im with Rick, get yourself a nice over/under. You are more than welcome to try mine out; you haven't seen it yet.

I personally wouldnt buy a 2000 dollar gun to go trapsing around a field hunting birds. if you trip and put a scratch in that thing its gonna ruin your day. where as a 500 dollar remington or something youll just spray some camo over the scratch and say fuck it

Rick,

Are you a member at NB? My wife and I have been members for 8 years, although with baby around we don't get out much anymore. Heck, I didn't shoot there once in 03. If so, wanna meet up and break some clays?

BTW, for clays I'm Browning all the way. I have a Lightning and my wife has a 425.
