Re: Benelli Nova??
Don't have one, tried one though.
I'm not recoilshy when t comes to shotguns.
I do like 2 3/4" as much as 3" and 3½" shells - even from relatively light shotguns.
If you're recoilshy.. well, there's just some kind of hunts you have to part with, unless you want something heavy to tote around.
I've got a Benelli Super Black Eagle 3½" Semi-auto and I don't mind the recoil one bit, even from the heavy loaded shells.
Quality is unsurpassed - I don't care what anyone else says, it .. simply.. is.
You can get extra weights, with Mercury in it - recoildampeners.
They can be installed quite easily.
It is a little futuristic looking, the Nova - that's nothing to be scared of.
It handles very well - and keeps on truckin' when others takes a poopin'.
I've tried several makes, brands, models or whatever the (beep) it's called - (I did some repair, tests and such for a company in Greenland).
I've found that Benelli can be beat.. other than with a flyswatter - but not in reliability, quality and craftmanship. No way.
Now.. don't do anything I've allready done - that would just be plain stoopid. I learned the hard way.
Only way to get stoned.??? - Whisky on the rocks.
