They say that the Beretta is softer to shoot but the Benelli is more reliable. The Benelli feels a little bigger and clunkier to me. I've shot both and I think I'd like a Benelli but I already own a Beretta.
Release the Kracken.

I also bought a Beretta 92FS so I'm not Benelli brain washed. I think you would be happy with either one.

I dont think anyone who has used one can find much negative to say about them. They are inertia guns they do recoil more than a gas gun but hunting that dont bother me one bit.
Like the above guy just mentioned I too had the same middle finger busting experience and trophy days are done for me. I now have what I think is going to be a permanent knot there. It hurts like a ****. During season it was almost the size of a marble, now just a half marble and nice scar. I dealt with it for 2 seasons and I now own a Beretta A400 and an Extrema 2 (since season closed). I have shot both of these guns several times and really like them. No cycling issues even with light 2 3/4 shells and I have also shot heavy 3.5" duck loads and no finger thump whatsoever. These are also very easy guns to assemble/take apart, like the Benelli. I wished I could give you an A plus field rating on the Beretta's but I have yet to hunt with them. I will tell you if they perform half as good as my Benelli's did I will be satisfied. Just be advised of the "benelli"finger thumping you may get.
