This was probably the roughest hunting conditions I've put my Benelli M2 through in the 2 1/2 years I've had it. Other than snow/ice/freezing conditions, this early season hunt I thought would've bee the toughest on my gun. Mud was absolutely everywhere on account of getting in and out of the boat, dog shaking muck everywhere. The reservoir's water level dropped fast that day! It was still a very fun hunt but dang, it was messy. The gun never had a hang up, even on some missed shots on those pesky teal when quick follow up shots were needed. Definitely made me a believer.
**To make it note worthy, I had my old M2000 out in the same place several times about year or two before this photo, and it wouldn't handle the same conditions. Misfires and cycling problems every few shots. It came out of the case perfectly cleaned and lubed, but just wouldn't take it.
Sorry to hijack the thread.
