THE most overworked subject on the internet. Do a search and you will see reams of arguments. Its a pump. Get what you like.

I personally did not like the supernova, I had issues with not pumping hard enough or far enough because I was so accustomed to my 870.

It's a pump gun that does not have a bad history of jamming or breaking. If you like the way it looks and feels, then buy it shoot it and enjoy it. If you ever change your mind, trade in for something else. As long as you stick with good quality guns with good reputations you can trade them around with other people with your investment pretty much intact. Jump to something of questionable quality and on the very high or low end of the cost range and your investment becomes a bigger gamble. Even then, if you know it's a gamble and you can afford the chance, maybe it's worth it to you. Personally, it's not a gun I want to carry but if my best friend got one I wouldn't just drop him... If I didn't drop him when he got that flushing dog, I wouldn't for an ugly shotgun either. I mean that's only two strikes, right?

I haven't shot the supernova but I held it and it feels comfortable. I've shot the 870 and found it had a bit more recoil than I like.
Ill see and thanks for the input.

If the Benelli Super Nova feels comfortable buy it.
Mossberg 835 is another option to take a look at.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned a Model 12 yet.

For me its in this order:

Ithaca m37 Waterfowler
Browning BPS (best value on a quality pump)
Remington Wingmaster
Benelli Nova/Supernova
Winchester SXP
Remington 870 Wingmaster
All others

Because it looks like he wants a new production model, not an ancient one....but I think you were just stirring the lot anyway!
