So, I've fired my friends Benelli SuperNova. He got it for about 450$. Mossberg 500 Tacticals are about 350$. And I've seen Remington 870's at the store for as low as 275$. I plan to use it for hunting and home defense. I am leaning towards the Mossberg 500 because of looks and the durability factor and just all around reliability. I heard it has some recoil. 870 is a classic choice, as anyone who has looked up anything about Shotguns knows. As for the Benelli, I like it's feel somewhat, it has quite abit of recoil though, but it just doesn't feel right. Not sure, when firing it, everything feels like a chore. I haven't fired the other two though, so I can't comment. Just like the pump action of it requires some serious force, you have to apply pressure a second before it'll pump and release the shell. It has a Pistol Grip as well, at least the one he has does. Not sure if that was the reason for the sore shoulder. Like to maybe get a rifle barrel for it later without costing an arm and a leg. My friend wanted to get one for his Benelli, but it was over 300$, the cost of another gun! Peoples opinions on these three Titans?
