    Ive shot the Benelli super nova and the Browning Gold hunter, I liked the browning alot better. It was simpler to use and just felt like it shot better.

    I have 2 Benelli's, an M2 and a Legacy. Both 12 gauge and I hunt a LOT of pheasant and grouse. I've had the M2 for about 4 years and the Legacy for 3. I've never had a single problem with either but I do clean them after every hunt. My M2 is the black version not camo so I try to keep the outside oiled to prevent rust when we hunt in the rain or snow. I also have a Berreta 20 gauge and it seems to be a bit more picky about ammo but I love the way it shoots.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    I have an 11-87 12ga and it shoots, functions perfectly from light to heavy loads. Problem is, it's a tank to carry for 8-10 miles of upland hunting.
    I bought a Browning Silver Hunter in 20 ga and it carries much better, and shoots great.
    I can buy 20ga loads that duplicate heavy 12ga 2 3/4" and shot my biggest rooster ever on closing day with that 20 and folding him right up at 30yds was a confidence booster.
    In re OP, I have friends that had to have the biggest, baddest shottie out there, and they've never, EVER shot a 3.5 inch shell, and never will.
    They bought it for reputation and braggin rights, and the tradeoff is they struggle at sporting clays with light 2.75 loads, paid WAYYYY too much for the gun, and everyone knows they bought too much gun for their purpose.
    Meanwhile, I kill birds with my light 20 and my arm doesn't ache at the end of the day.
    The chances of actually USING a 3.5in 12 ga is slim to none.

    Been looking for a pistol grip auto 12 gauge, but it seems I would just have to buy a auto and add the grip. Still undecided and doing research.

    I have a old handed down Remington Wingmaster, for clays and birds.

    Great gun that I'm not afraid to scratch or anything like that... It takes a beating, and worst case it's only $500, not the $1000+ of the bennilli

    ya i currently have 3 over and unders, beretta 686 silver piegeon 2 barrel set 20/28g, ceaser geurini summit, and a 20 gauge weatherby athena 20, and 2 old 870 wingmasters and looking for an auto loader my one buddy has a small sponsorship from browning and could get me a new synthetic maxus for 750 but i haven't shot one yet only the superblack eagle 2 and i love it. but my friend that has it is a Extreme waterfowl and duck hunter and has shot probly over 15-20,000 rounds through his and his for end on his stock is loose and he has called benelli many times and they pretty much said you shot too many rounds through it and to go pound salt so im leaning towards the browning

    i love shotguns!!

    i like double barrels. here are a couple of mine (both berettas). i have an old beater 870 and an even older 1100. both are great, but i love my doubles. i'd use them for anything that flys. my stepdad just gave me that SXS..40+ year old gun..NIB,. awesome.

    My buddy bought one...he now owns a Benelli. Way too many times in for repair. A serious POS. I mean, he and I and another bud were out at a local farm. Our other bud and I are flat out tearing up pigeons while he's over jacking with his "Turkenelli". While reloading, we took time to remind him our "twice the price" Benelli M1 Super 90's were functioning quite well. :D

    So...FWIW, If it's half the price of a Benelli...it's worth half a Benelli...or less. :D

    p.s. If you are getting a pump gun, get a Remington 870 Wingmaster (NO, NOT AN EXPRESS, A WINGMASTER). You'll never need another pump shotgun...unless you just want one...or can dual wield...:D

    I love me side by side 12g. I recently seen a nice pair of double barrels and a gun shop I stopped by the other day. Mine needs a new butt stock since I dropped it looking for crap during Hurricane Ike.

    I have a SBE2 and it has been flawless for me so far. Just got it last year, so it hasn't been run hard yet, but so far so good in the pits and skeet shooting.

    If you run 3.5s a lot then you are going to notice the recoil more than the gas guns. An Extrema2 with the kickoff might be a better option or a SX3.
