looking at either the Franchi Intensity or Franchi Affinity..

They are similar to Benellis from what I have seen with friends. My brother in law has one that is a nice enough gun but is problamtic when shooting light loads.

They are fine for their price. I have a Franchi O/U and for the most part it works fine. It did give me a little trouble shortly out of the box with the O/U / Safety selector workings, but the LGS fixed it for me. Now I find myself treating it far too easy for fear of it malfunctioning again. If budget is a great concern for you, go for it, if not look at something different.
