Berreta Vs. Benelli

Hello one and all, I need some help please. Due to an injury I am looking to pick up a semi-auto 12ga. shotgun. I have narrowed my choices down to two. A Berreta Urika 2 or a Benelli SBE II. The two I am trying to decide on both have walnut stocks. Not a real fan of the camo. And the Berreta is on sale for $800. Which of the two would be the better buy regarding reliability and function for turkey, deer, and some trap shooting? Thanks

The Beretta is on SALE for $800!

Wow what a sale.... LOL

You could buy a Browning Gold Hunter for that much.

Even better yet, you could buy a Ding n Dent Browning Gold Hunter at Grice Gunshop and still have enough money left over to buy a couple of cases of trap loads.

Last time I checked - they were $650 for a Ding n Dent, and I would be happy to pick out out for you that you probably couldn't tell from new...

Ding n dent

Do they have a Browning Gold Hunter available now???
tried to visit their website, but the online catalog is under construction. E-mail me at Wvladimire@yahoo.com I would be interested in getting one at that price.

Thanks
Robert

semi-auto shotgun

I have just returned from my local gun store. I went and checked out the SBE II, AL 391 Urika, and the Gold Hunter. As I have said before, I like the feel of all three. The Benelli is nice but way to much. Out of the Beretta and Browning I liked the look and feel of the Beretta better and will probably go with that one.

Semi-auto choosen

I want to thank you all for your help and advice. But after research and Game Masters advice, I have purchased a Browning Gold. Mainly just as reliable as an SBE II, softer kicking, will function with lower rounds, and if something should break, I will not have to wait 6 months for it.

Thanks one and all.
