    Im looking at ugrading from a pump shotgun so an autoloader.

    main uses will be

    -skeet/trap/sporting clays

    -duck/dove/quail hunting

    so far ive seen the remmy 1187's and the benelli's just not sure if benellis are worth payin double what an 1187 costs

    I've had a super black eagle II for about 3 years and it was totally worth it. I have never had an issue with it even when shooting light loads. As an added bonus you can shoot 3 1/2" shells :cool:

    3 1/2" is pretty unnecessary unless you're shooting geese.

    honestly for clay games I would want a over/under. Mostly because it gets real old picking up your hulls off the ground. With a O/U they just pop into your hand and you throw the hulls into the bucket.

    The Remington shotguns are decent, so are the berretta. Really the benelli are the best. Everyone says this and it's true. Might be better for your bank account if you didn't go to the gun store and handle one.

    I used to shoot a fair amount of sporting clays, and still love to hunt dove. I've always had 1100's, as did most of my family. I liked them 'iight, and really can't say I ever had any problems usually associated with the platform.

    Though I did just pick up a M2, and it's pretty sweet.

    If your looking for a budget benelli look at stoeger. Same company and same action.

    unfortunately they don't shoot like a benelli. Many people are hopeful on saving a few bucks, never seems to work out.

    i shot my dads sbeII , it handled nice and felt great, even though it was a left handed gun. I just didnt know if it warranted the price difference between the two. My dad has a franchi (sp?) over under thats pretty baller but id rather have something i could hunt with and not car if it gets dropped or dirty.
