Glad yall got this convo started because I'm looking to possibly purchase a new gun this season. I been using the ol 870 and have abused it but it still gets the job done. I hunt 3-4 days a week during the season and plan on doing a little extra weekday hunts this season. I was looking at all the guns mentioned here and have left it up to how the gun feels in my hands to make a decision. I would love to get my hands on each and do some shooting so if anyone wants to shoot some clays sometime before the season lmk i'd love to try em out.

In the past I've liked beretta over benelli, But the SBE2 is a bad mofo .. If I was buying today, it would be that shotgun for sure

There is not one person I know that has purchased the Benelli Vinci who has not been very satisfied with it.....once you get over it's strange look I think you will love it.

However I would really like to get the browning A5.

When I bought my Super Vinci, I thought long and hard about just buying another SBE II. Love that gun. Super Vinci is a bad mofo too though. I usually buy a new gun every other year from Shooters on their 1 year interest free financing in August.

I've got M1, SBE, SBE II, and Super Vinci.

Speaking of how many times do you hunt a year.......

I love when peeps make comments about a product but only use it 3-5 times a year......

I have a buddy that has an sbe II and it only ejects drylocks and nothin else. Sent it to benelli and they said nothing wrong with it. My beretta cycles any shell and never had issues but barrel getting peeled by a bad shell and shell company paid for my barrel. My gun ejects 1oz loads which most don't. Beretta is all around better gun no matter who says what. You can talk and say all you want but say in and day out they perform and I can't say the same about competitors bc not one of my buddies hunt with Barretta and they all have way more issues than I've ever ran into

My Vinci cycles 7/8 oz loads just fine. Never had a problem. On the other hand my cousins beretta wouldn't cycle any low brass at all. This arguement could go on for days.

I have a buddy that shoot an A-400 and only cycles buckshot and he sent it back to beretta and they said nothing is wrong with the gun more than likely user error....Benelli is a better all around gun!

No matter what anyone tells you ,here is the truth . Go to gun shops try the guns you are interested in .See how they fit you and how they feel in your hands . A gun that does not fit you or is comfortable will always be junk in your eyes. Remember more money don't always mean better either. I'm a Browning fan ,and a guide who hunts the vast majority of every waterfowl season .I see all of them have issues ,so no gun is perfect or flawless. I can never say it enough ,whatever you pick make sure it fits you .Don't buy just cause it looks cool or was on sale .

Gas operated guns have trouble cycling low brass. All my Benellis cycle 7/8s.

I see you were smart enough to listen to your IDOL....

Hopefully we will have some teal to break it in before duck season starts.

Isnt that illegal to hunt "between" seasons?

Been hunting my camo Sbe. for about 12+ years now. Hunt ducks and doves and whatever else is flying around. Cant say Ive really had any problems with it. Very minimal cleaning, just a lil earl.

OH, AND I PLEAD THE 5TH ON "HANGING THE 4TH"
