I'll add my $0.02 here. I've owned a Super Vinci since they first came out. I bought mine in early 2011. Its been in many a duck blind, and shot plenty of other birds as well, as well as a fair few clays.

I shoot a Citori Crossover now primarily for clays, but if I'm going on a hunting trip, the SV comes along invariably, and always has. I also have a SBEII (which usually goes as "backup") and honestly could go buy anything I wanted to replace the SV, but I just keep hunting it. It shoots everything that's ever been loaded in it, from light target loads to heavy goose loads - with one exception, mine does not like Kent Fasteel 3" shells for some reason, and it may just have been a bad box of shells...

Yes its ugly. But man does it break down easy. And because its ugly I don't care about scuffs and scrapes on it from heavy hunting use. Hunt all day in pouring rain, use it as a boat paddle, drop it in gumbo mud, I've done it all. Just take it apart, hose it out, oil it and reassemble in just a couple of minutes.

From a functional standpoint, I can recommend it without hesitation. The safety doesn't bother me, every gun I have has a slightly different safety and you just get used to it. At the end of the day, you don't buy any of these "plastic" (synthetic stock) guns for looks - you buy them for function. Benelli nailed that in my book. Not to say you won't get equally good service out of a competitor - in that price range there probably isn't a bad option - so if the SV feels good to you, I'd say buy it. I did.

[quote="woodtam"]Hey Everyone

1. Is the safety position a real issue?

I bought an early Super Vinci in 2012. Since then it has been my waterfowl and turkey gun.
For those purposes the safety is not an issue. The geese are circling for several minutes before they come into the decoys and I am usually working a gobbler for 30 minutes before I can shoot him. It points nicely for me. Like another poster indicated, it does not like Kent Fasteel but it shoots everything else without a bobble. FWIW Kent Fasteels do not work weel in one buddies SBEII and another's Browning A5.
