It's not that there isn't a lot of love for Benellis - it is just most here won't/can't drop the coin needed to buy one. They are excellent, and very reliable guns. that I see in the hands where I live of some very serious turkey and waterfowl hunters. When I shoot a semi, however, I am shooting clay targets, so I prefer the softer gas action guns like the A400 - but if I were again going after waterfowl and turkeys, a Benelli would be in the safe for those times.
