Benelli recoil operated shotguns are easy to clean.creeker said:Cleaning a gas gun is a hassle vs an O/U.
to the original poster. I have never shot an O/U, but I was considering buying one and had taken a look at several lower end guns. I noticed that they are heavier than my Benelli. The 2 benefits I see for O/U shotguns is that you don't have to bend over to pick up your shells and you can put 2 different size chokes in the same gun. Since I have never shot an O/U, I do not know which gun will give you a faster 2nd shot. I would guess they are close to the same. My Benelli cycles faster than I can get my eye on the target after it recoils. I suggest a semi-auto Benelli.
P.S. I shoot my 870 more than my Benelli.
