What do y'all think? Is the Benelli Supernova worth the extra bill over the Nova? It will be used for dove hunting and a little duck hunting. And the occasional brother vs brother skeet competition.

I asked in another sections but no luck. Hopefully y'all can help out.

only difference is 3.5" shells, correct?

If so, I have a Benelli Super Black Eagle II and I shot 3.5" at geese and it beat me down!!!

I think the 3" is plenty for your intended use, maybe when you trade up to the SBE......but that's my opinion.

The 28" Nova also shoots 3.5". But like you said 3" would be all that I need.

The basic nova still shoots 3.5" shells.
The only difference when I bought mine about, 7years ago, was the stock. It had some adjustable parts to it. Otherwise they were identical. At the time, my decision was no it wasn't worth the extra bill.

What if we threw in the Stoeger M3000, which is a semi-auto, into the mix? It's the same price as the Supernova.

Haha, I went through the same thought process years ago. The following may not help at all...

At the time I decided to get the regular nova because I couldn't see any reasonable benefit for the super. If I wanted to spend that much, I was to skeptical about a cheaper semi. So I figured the clear choice was save money and get a regular nova because I'd be pissed if I bought a cheaper semi that didn't work well when I knew the basic nova would always work. And it had for me for years even though I abused mine a bit (dropped it in seawater, poked stuff with the barrel, stood around in the rain, etc). It was great and never regretted it. But this was clearly a case of not knowing how good good can be.

Fast forward and I acquire an over under and then my beretta urika 2 and the semi is all I ever shoot since I got it about 4 years ago, both hunting and sporting. If I had to go back and ONLY have one shotgun, if try my best to get the best semi I can.

If on a limited budget, get an beretta a300 semi auto. Awesome shotgun!

For a high quality semi auto, I respectfully disagree. If you are going pump, then yes. I encourage you to seriously consider a semi auto. You won't regret it. Semi auto is more fun when dove/ducks are flying overhead in my opinion. Plus, bass pro was offering 150 off any firearm when opening a bass credit card. AND, beretta had a 100$ dollar rebate. I now have 1k shells through it with zero issues. Good luck with whatever you choose. Happy new year!

Do you know if they are still doing the $150 off? I can't find it on their website. Also, where have you seen the $100 rebate?

Happy New Year to you also.
