Tons of people have asked this question so you may not get to many responses. I would get a Benelli heard to much about Brownings jamming.

:umm: THOSE ARE STORIES CREATED BY BENELLI OWNERS WITH GUNS THAT HAVE BENT BARRELS AND CROOKED CHOKE TUBES. :toofunny:

If you think I am joking read the SBII thread!

I have an SBE 2 and a Browning Gold Hunter and have never had a problem with either. Browning Heavier, SBE kicks harder.

Rule number 1....buy a quality gun get a quality deal never pay too much and keep the things you buy clean and serviceable....if you do that its possible to even buy a remington and shoot well.....ya my boss thinks I should by a benelli but he still hasn't beat me on a sporting clays range with my trusty remington....heck he cannot even come close to matching my scores.....but then my boss has decided that italian made firearms are much better than american ones...he thinks foriegn engineers are much smarter than us american ones.....So select a shotgun that fits you and one that you will shoot well with!!!!

BROWNING. The gunshops around here won't even stock Benelli because of all the trouble they have had dealing with them.

My advice call it a thread hijack if you like but very sound advice, buy none of these guns just buy a Baikal MP153 there is nothing out there at the moment to touch it dispite the cheap finish. :smile: :smile: :thumbsup:

for reliabillity get a Browning bps i own 2 and hunt ducks pheasnt and deer with them. They are the smothest pumping guns ive ever shot better than a wingmaster and ive used both. As for speed a auto loader is not any faster than a smooth pumping shot gun. I dropped a 140 class buck with 2 rounds through the lungs and heart and fired both shots at the running buck so fast my dad and brother only thought i fired once.
