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 *****?

Although I shoot a BERETTA 390 GOLD SPORT, for my sons first shotgun I bought him a montifeltro 12ga, because of the realibilty, and ease of maintenance.RON KONTOWSKYDEANS GUNSHOP IIGUNSMITHING DIV.

You didn't include the Benelli Sport, which if I was an auto shooter I would surely consider. Was this an oversight or is there something about this model that makes it undesireable? Just curious...
