The reason you don't care about having a soft shooting gun is because you have one. You go out with an auto 5 magnum with 3" and you'll notice a difference. He's not saying getting on target for the first shot, he's talking about staying on the target through the three shots.
I think i x'd out the gold because it is gas operated, i know the SBEII isnt how about the others? And i could not find the MSRP for the Winchester or Beretta does anyone know of them?
The gold, Extrema II, and the Super X II are all gas operated. There is NOTHING wrong with gas operated actions. I had problems with my Super X II in the beginning because of the lack of lubrication in the action in extremely cold temperatures. I'm quite a bit bigger than you, but still, shooting 3.5" loads out of my Super X II is nothing. Take my word for it, after putting near 3,000 rounds through it sense July through competitive skeet, trap, and clays alone. No telling how many cheap, turkey, and steel loads I've put through it, probably pushing it up near 6,000. It will suit your needs. I got my Super X II for $602 after tax.
