In my sporting clays travels, I have found few people that shoot the Benelli shotgun. Are there any Benelli shooters out there? If the answer is yes, what model do you shoot? I shoot the Benelli Legacy for competition.SlowgunThe Executive
I shoot a Beretta 391 bored 12 *****. This gun definitely has less felt recoil than a Benelli. Much less.However, this past summer I had the chance to shoot a Montefeltro 20 ***** Benelli alongside a Beretta 303 20 *****, and I thought the Benelli had slightly less recoil.These are, of course, only perceptions. However, I would consider a 20 ***** short recoil gun like a Benelli over a Beretta just for the ease of cleaning the gun.Why the differences? Who does the 20 ***** Benelli seem to recoil less than the gas gun, but just the opposite in 12 *****?
