New shotguns

Just wondering if anybody has shot any of the new for 2009 scatterguns like the Remington 887, Benelli Vinci, Browning Maxus.

Looking into a new duck gun but can't find anybody that has one of these around here.

I'm also planning on picking up a new waterfowl gun for this fall. I was excited about the Vinci until I found out it was only a 3" gun. There is nothing wrong with using 2 3/4 or 3" shells they work great and do the job. However, If I'm going to spend that amount of money on a hunting gun than I want it to shoot and cycle anything I put in it. I have narrowed my search down to 3 shotguns.
Benelli Super Black Eagle II
Beretta Extrema 2
Browning Maxus-I havent had a chance to see one yet.

I got my hands on the Vinci last week. Real nice "feeling" gun. But, like you said, I just don't think I can drop that much money on a 3" gun. I don't shoot 3 1/2s much but I like to have that option.

My problem with browning is that every time I've hunted with somebody that had one, had it freeze at some point. And, we're talk MS here, so not exactly sub-zero temps.

The Maxus looks like it is the only one of these shotguns to have the potential to become a real winner. At least that is my impression of the 3 guns.
