We're all so glad you're back. And yes, elephants. Easier to float 4 too, but those pesky itialians probably did away with that feature after Fallin Skies.

Not impressed. For as much hype as they put behind this gun I think that falls short. I am also surprised that no 3.5" is offered. I don't need it but there are plenty that shoot them.

Bought up enough to shoot old ones for a while. I do have 1 benelli, other 3 are hk. 2 never shot in the box. I thought the sbe II's were ugly, but dang. I shoot 3 1/2 and need every pellet.

That thing is nasty looking. I'm not a happy camper when it comes to Benelli right now. I own two M2's and a SBE and love them. This monstrosity looks like some engineer had a good trip.

You would think they would try to create a shotgun that fired 3 times instead of building the worlds ugliest shotgun.

If you are buying a waterfowl gun solely on the looks or because your friend has one instead of the functionality of it the you are buying it for the wrong reason. I do not own a Benelli nor do I want to own one, but wait for the function test or reviews before you slam it. What people should be after is a safe gun that is comfortable, can withstand the elements, fires everytime the trigger is pulled, etc. To many people don't understand that function is primary with looks being secondary.

:crazy: you could not be further from the truth ...when you are dealing with one of the best names in guns on the market

when you look at spending what it cost to buy a top shelf gun it must be pleasing to the eye as well as function like a top dog afield ..

That thing looks like a cheap gun ..

Wanna buy a cheap waterfowl gun that fires everytime ... buy a Mossberg it cost 1/3 of the price but isnt pleasing to the eye -- just plain jane .

Maybe they will drop the price of the SBE and the M2. Hey it the time for change so anything can happen.

I am not saying the SBE2 is not a good gun. But some people start slamming the gun when it may be the "next best thing" since the SBE2. I said absolutely nothing about price. You will pay for a good shotgun that can do all of the things that I stated. If I was farther than the truth and if was all about looks then YOU would be shooting a Citori or a Krieghoff depending on your financial situation. You need to reread the post instead of skim it and don't get offended when someone doesn't shoot what you shoot.

Ugly gun. Seems to have a lot of new inovations though. Benelliusa.com . Seems they put it to test down in Argentina. Says they shot 88,000 rounds with no misfires. :huh: I know one thing though, I wont be shooting one, if I'm paying that much I would like the option of a 3.5" shell. JMO

im not offended .. and I didnt just skim thru your post either ..

Looks play a huge part in what I pick out in a gun . Its 50 / 50 .

Not many people want to take an ugly date out on prom nite ..

you can kill anything in the world with a 3" 12ga

they went a differnt way and it has a completely new system, simple yes, but its a benelli, it will shoot and shoot and shoot

I'm sure this new shotgun will compliment the catalogue hunter's desires to be the coolest kid in the boat with the most fashion accessories with the newest camo, calls, deeks,gun,finest dog, best boat, etc.

I stick to my secondhand 25 year old 870 that only shoots 3 inchers, the camo parka made by Dickies that I got secondhand as well as the older secondhand Flambeau deeks that still somehow bring in a few birds here and there. Oh, did I fail to mention my cheap Haydel's calls?

I think its interesting that you all base your opinion of the gun on how it looks. The way the shells feed is the biggest innovation in auto loading shotguns in some time. Only time will tell if the new design is really a major improvement. Personally, I'll resevere judgement untill i shoot one.

If you would read the posts instead of glance at them, you would could read that 90% of the people in this thread that said something about the looks also shoot other benelli shotguns.

A man after my heart except I got a second hand 870 supermag greenhead gear duck deks that were given to me carrylite goose shells that are on their second painting or so and an Olt that older then some on here and lab crosses for dawgs.

Now I don't find that gun appealin to me and I sure wouldn't spend that kind of money but if you like it and can afford it go for it and keep on enjoying the sport of waterfowling.
