    Good gun?

    Cabellas had it on sale for $1200 so I picked it up. It seemed like a good deal to me.

    28" barrel w/ Comfortech.

    Will be using it for Dove as well as Goose this weekend :wiggle:

    The only thing I'm worried about is the 1oz steel Dove loads.

    Benelii states that you should run 1oz 1/8th loads or greater :noes:

    I cleaned off all the stock Benelli oil and oiled it up. Can't wait for Saturday.

    Goose in the morning Dove in the evening.

    I've had one for about three years. When I first got it I was shooting 1 oz loads out of it with out a problem :dunno:

    I've put a few thousand rounds through it without a misfire :bowdown:

    The gun has to have something to recoil against in order to cycle. That's the whole basis for the inertia driven system.

    Once I figure out my reloading for steel shot I'll be making my own.

    Need to make a few trial runs before taking them into the field.

    I know I can't wait!

    Hope it can hold it's own with Dove too though.

    Goose Stew Monday :yum:
