You have any facts to back that statement up, or is it just blowing hot air.you want a real gun buy a Winchester or a Beretta
Because Benelli has the Deepest PocketsYou have any facts to back that statement up, or is it just blowing hot air.
If you look at what guys that shoot 20, 30 or more THOUSAND rounds a year shoot, you'll see LOT's more Benelli's than all the others combined. Look on the competition circuit. These guys don't take their guns lightly. If they don't perform, they find something that does. The TOP guns shoot Benelli's. Guys that shoot a couple of boxes a year duck hunting don't know how a real gun performs.
Glad you're liking your Gold, D2. My cousin had a 3" and a 3.5" Gold and finally traded the 3.5" and got a SBEII because more hunts than not, it turned into a single shot rather than a semi-auto. He's never had a problem with his 3" though. Go figure.I duck hunt almost every day of season and goose hunt any where from 20-30 days after the conservation hunt starts. I carry people that use SBE'S, Browning's, Winchesters, Mossbergs, Berretta's, Remington's etc. The guns with the most malfunctions are the Bennelli's. Maybe it's because they dont shoot 20-30 thousand rounds a year thru 'em. Duck/goose hunting, 'specialy goose hunting, is a nasty and dirty job. The guns with ZERO failures are the pumps of course. I have used a Mossberg 835 untill I have had to change out the bolt because it broke. I then wanted to go to a semi-auto and did. I shoot a Browning gold and couldnt be happier. It has to be cleaned on a regular basis also. But I dont see the problems with the Brownings that I do with the other brands. My 2 cents worth...d2
Had a gold and it was the worst shotgun i ever had. I got rid of it a few years ago. Now i have a Gold light .10ga. and can't get it to pattern worth a crap. I have been working on it for 3 years now and it just won't pattern beyond 32 yds. and i have spent a fortune on chokes like "KICKS" and a few others also. I would stay with Beretta, Remington, or Benelli.If a SBE won't hold up to lots and lots of 3.5" shells, then its a peice of junk. Buy a Gold and be happy
