    Benelli(Sp?), should i get it

    Im sure you know im in the market for a 12Ga for phesant and clays(the first taste better). Ive found a benelli Nova 12 w/ 3 chokes and wrench, used for 250 bucks plus shipping and FFL fees. Does this sound like a good idea, i know banellis are great, and NOVA is a good gun, so how is this price. Pics are pending when i get them.

    i know. I was thinking the remington870, but thats 300 bucks w/ modified choke. And this is what i think is a better gun for less money.



    btw, thanks for responding to a gun noobs threads so much.

    UPDATE. here are the pics and the description

    Actually, I need you area code, not your zip code.. It was imported into the country in 93, but was bought new last year.. It fires, cycles etc like a brand new weapon.. It has a few small scratches from handling it, but absolutely nothing that looks bad.. It has had less than 300 rds through it, which for a shotgun is nothing at all.. Here are some pics.. Lemme know..

    I have one....has to be the easiest shotgun to tear down and clean. I plan on getting a nicer over/under for dove and quail hunting, but the Nova will still be my primary duck/goose gun because it's so durable.

    I cant believe the prices some Dealers here ask for an FFL transfer

    one shop. 70 bucks

    Other shop. 180 bucks

    third shop- 39 bucks. I am hoping to call a few more places tommorow

    so far it looks good, if i can try to talk him down to around 200 bucks.

    A lot of gun shops around here have used Nova's. You might be better off looking local. Of course, you're more likely to find a camo print than a black one if you go that route.
