I'm needing/itching for a new shotgun. This will be my go to dove gun because my Beretta does not cycle light loads. 3 inch chamber is fine but no 3.5's.

Here my list of must haves:
12ga
Semi auto
Wood stocks(satin finish or high gloss doesn't matter)
26 inch barrel
Under $1000

So far I've fondled a Benelli Montefeltro and Franchi, both felt great but the Benelli shouldered a little easier.
It's been so long since Ive bought a shotty that I don't really know what's what anymore. Are the Ithaca's any good?

I'll read those today, I looked at Stoegers, seemed to fit very well, just don't know anybody that has one.

I was where you are now about a month ago. I hadn't bought a shotgun in 20yrs. I had 3 Benelli's, 2-20s & an SBE1 so I just never needed anything else. I wanted to get a gas operated gun for my daughter to duck hunt with. I looked at & handled just about everything out there and decided that I liked the feel of the Win SX3 best. I ask around and got a lot of good reviews, so I sold a 20ga Montefeltro and bought a 12ga. SX3 camo w/26"bbl. After shooting several rounds of skeet and changing out the shims I am very happy the way the gun shoots. Looking forward to trying it out on some doves soon.

I bought a Stoeger for my Dad and he decided to go to a 20 ga so I kept it for a lend out gun and have been surprised by the performance. I have only shot crows with it but after a case of shells not one malfunction.

A buddy has one of the franchi's and it seems like a really nice semi. I've shot it a few times and it felt good and shot well for me.

The ONLY thing I didn't like was plate you push up to load new shells (not sure of the name) was a thumb grabbing mo-dinker.

Gonna agree with this.

Yildiz guns are considerably cheaper and good shooters as well. confused2

What Beretta do you have? For an inexpensive auto, I have been very happy with my Beretta A300 Outlander.
