    Italian Semi auto. I seem to recall it being banned in a few places. Can not remember where or why.

    It was one of the first tactical shotguns to be convertible from pump to semi on the fly.

    With the introduction of the Benelli M3 though, people saw they could have the same ability in a lighter, better designed package.

    It is illegal in California, it is classified as an assault weapon I believe. Anyone know if the M3 is legal in California? I am thinking about getting a shotgun and have only heard good things about the Remington 870, anyone got any favorites I should look into?

    dunno about the m3, it's probably considered an assault weapon in Kalifornia since it does the same as the spas. the best way to know is to ask your local LEOs. as for the 870, it's one of the most popular shotguns for a reason. i'd have no hesitation in selecting one(for hunting or home defense).

    edit- i do own an 870(a 16ga Wingmaster given to me by my mom) i have never had a malfunction with it and it is among my favorite guns.

    definitely the cool factor. I'll probably buy one eventually. I hear they're damn heavy, though.
