Would you say that the Benelli is good for all those uses ?Do you have any experience with 12 gauge shotguns? Can you maintain a semi-auto shotgun? What is your intended use or purpose? Hunting, home protection, casual or competition? The Benelli is a very good gun. It would serve you well.
In a word... No.Would you say that the Benelli is good for all those uses ?
A less expensive option then a Benelli would be a pump action Mossberg model 500. This is a pretty basic 12 gauge. Very easy to break down and clean. Shouldn't run you over $225-$250. They have been made for MANY years and there are a LOT of them available. Swapping out stocks, adding pictatiny rails or other customization is easilly done. Is it as nice as a Benilli? No. But it has a low cost point and will get the job done for sure.Is the benelli nova a good 12 gauge for a first?
