    I thought Mossberg had the shotgun market with the military?

    For the majority of the guns they do. The Benelli is used by USSOCOM and Marines. Those same units also have the Mossberg in their arms room.

    I have it’s older brother, a late 80’s HK import M1 Super 90, and would never trade for it ... except for maybe an M4. Yeah, the older M1 is older and it’s Inertia Drive operation does push a little harder than gas operation but it has cycled everything low or high brass ... bird or buck or slugs. The Inertia System runs real clean. Benelli makes a damn sweet shotgun and to me worth it.

    ETA ... funny thing if you show up to a tactical shotgun class with a semiauto you hear others talking about how semiautos will do this and won’t do that. Then by the end of the class everyone knows that’s not true anymore. Funniest of all is at least a couple people make offers to buy it or ask where they can get one and when you tell them the M1S90 is over 30 years old they stopped making them the look is priceless ... just about like my Benelli.

    Same. Love my M1. I can't outrun the gun. Of course I couldn't outrun my M2 either.

    And if I could afford it (I dont care if I couldn’t justify it and likely wouldn’t even try) I’d add a M2 and M4 to my collection with out blinking ...

    I love S*B buckshot. Once upon a time, when Cheaper than Dirt weren't price-gouging scumbags, I bought 4 cases of the 00 buck and ran it thru my various 12-ga (circa 1999 aka Y2K) for ten years. Never had a bad one and love the see-thru folded crimp hulls.

    I got over 500 when it was on sale last time. The S&B runs really well. Rio has been really good for me too, and it was even cheaper several years ago. The shell length difference is hilarious.

    I think a lot of the "semis will do this or won't do that" comes from people's experiences with some of the Remington semi shotguns of days gone by. A friend of mine had a gun shop in the 80s and quite frequently had people bring Remington 1100s in that weren't working. He said 99% of the time, all they needed was a new O-ring and they ran good as new. Those 1100 repairs paid a lot of his bills back then. He charged a minimum $20 fee for gunsmithing and the O-rings cost him less than a dollar. Changing one out took less than 5 minutes. He would call the customer back in a couple days to let them know their gun was fixed.

    Yep, I keep 2 spares in a small zip-loc in my “stock hole” under the butt plate.

    ... and the trigger assembly was kinda prone to get schmutz built up from users over oiling and the stuff from the gas system sticking in it.
