    What's your budget like? I have a gently used Browning 425 with 30" Ported Barrels with 2 factory chokes, 2 extra triggers, and a nice leather breakdown case that I'm asking $1,400 for...

    Agreed, find a used Citori and don't look back. Otherwise look into a aemi from any of the big names. The cheap U/O's are just that, and will not stand up to a lot of target shooting. For a beater field gun, the budget U/O's are fine.

    any gun will do for clays. its shooting clays that will break the bank, unless its intended for use in your back yard.

    Like bobski said, it will work. Do you plan on shooting competitively or for fun? I don't have much experience with Benellis...just the super sports

    BUT, I did start off with a Browning Gold Hunter....Really sweet gun, but it being a semi auto, it did hick up with the dirty low power shells now and then. For a competitive shooter, that just isn't acceptable and I switched over to an O/U.

    it has all the bells and whistles you need, for you to work up to its full potential.
    its a gun you dont need to grow into.

    I have seen a lot of SBEs have issues with light loads. It is a heavy duty 3-1/2" chambered gun aimed at the waterfowl market. If clays is your primary concern I would definitely advise against it.

    The problem with shooting auto loaders in any competitive clay shooting game is the retrieving of the spent hulls. If you don't reload, it might not be as much of a problem, but some clubs require that you not leave any hulls on the ground. Always looking for them and always bending over to pick them up is a pain.
