Just tire kicking the idea of a new shotgun. It would be used for dove, varmints, and a few skeet shoots.

Prefer synthetic, No Camo, No Benelli SBE 2, I don't need 3.5" but I do need it to be able to cycle $6 dove loads

What else it out there?


I handled a Benelli Ethos at Cabelas and it was pretty dreamy feeling but so was the price tag for a "hunting" gun

Lol you're such a panzy for being such a big dude.

Look at the stoeger M3000 it's only 3" and it cycles the cheap Walmart dove loads just fine. Same inertia system as the benelli made by same mother company as benelli. The black synthetic ones run around $500ish

Beretta 390 is the lightest "felt recoil" shotgun I own.

Something gas operated. My Mossberg 930 is quite nice.

I have a Remington 11-87 with the sims recoil pad. Very soft shooting and cycles the cheap dove loads just fine.

I picked up an ethos last year and it is by far my favorite shotgun to shoot. Shoot the cheapo rio shells and haven't a hiccup. If you are around Sachse or Carrollton I can let you shoot it if you would like

My Remington 11-87 Premier Light Contour is the lightest shooting 12 gauge I have ever shot, but Ive never tried those expensive benelis.
