  1. Nothing wrong with that pattern. POI is great also. That'll get the job done. Crisis averted..
  2. The SBE might be a tad easier to clean because of the two piece receiver. I have both an SBE l and the SBE ll, but I believe that I will own an M2 in the near future. Can't go wrong either way..Mike
  3. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal labotomy..

    SBE II

    The SBE ll is a great shotgun. You will like it, for sure. It will do anything you want it to. A little oil on the rails, keep it relatively clean, and it will shoot flawlessly for a lifetime. Enjoy your new toy, and welcome to the world of Benelli..Mike
  5. Redneck boys will be Redneck boys. That is funny stuff..Mike
  6. I think it's a southern La., hen, mallagator. They fly low, are extremely hard to bring down, and decoy well to dead chickens. They are better skinned than plucked, and taste like chicken..Mike

    Hopefully, the Feds will slap it to him. His gig is up. Everybody on the planet knows that the guy is a phoney. His days of walking on water are over. He deserves the maximum, and I hope that he gets it..Mike
  8. I think you're right about that. I know that the cripples are hard on the dog..
  9. What kind of duck is this? I think it's a fish eater. What do you think Tucker?
  10. I will do an SBE lll, but would not even think about a Super Vinci..Mike
  11. I feel your pain. I also, am the proud owner of a 3'' Vinci..I have a couple of 3.5'' Benellis so the pain is not as deep as yours. Benelli missed the boat on this one. I suspect that there are more that a few people who feel the same way. I have news for them. I will not be buying the new one, and might have to sell the one I have, out of spite..Mike

    Tom Knapp

    Well said, Tucker. Now the whole world knows that the decision to cut Favre loose, was the correct one. Ironically, he got the coaches fired at the two teams he ended up at. Both were desperate moves from desperate teams. He probably is the best ever, but the guy that replaced him (Rodgers) is playing better than Farve ever was. And no pictures of his junk..Go Packers..Mike

    Tom Knapp

    From what I understand, he had severe lung problems and had to stop touring for Benelli. He thought that he was not going to be able to continue, ever. I understand that his health took an amazing turn for the better and by this time, Benelli said, no thanks. I do not know if any of this is fact, just what I have heard. I have always admired Tom Knapp, and I always will. None of what I have typed is Gospel, just the word on the street..Mike
  14. Something doesn't add up here. The thin shim will raise your poi. The gun should have shot higher. Houston, we have a problem..Mike
  15. You are correct on the way the shims work, Dumb Duck. You put the thickest shim in to drop the point of impact. It won't, however move the point of impact to the right. That you will have to work out. My Vinci shot the same way. A lot of them do. I also put a larger front bead on, and that helped lower my poi.Mike

    We have been invaded by the commie spammers again. I guess you can tell what day of the week it is..A weekend moderator is indeed needed..Mike
  17. It's really not too big of deal for me. I have the SBE l and SBE ll for the 3.5'' stuff. Just would have been nice if they started at the top and worked their way backward. I will not be buying a Super Vinci. I actually like the SBE ll better. I would buy another one of them, though.
  18. Me too. That would not be a good move..
  19. If it were me, I would stay far away from the Stoegers. Never had one, but there are lots of complaints on here about them, from guys that do. Mike
  20. Is it February in Iowa already? It is the beginning of January, here in Wi. and I really hate it. I need some warm weather..Mike
  21. Great pictures. Looks like you had a few days when they were flying. Nice looking dog. What's his/her name? Thanks for sharing..Mike
  22. Those are some very small ducks you got there, Matt. Very nice, but small..
  23. I own both the SBE ll and the Vinci. Both are great guns. If I had to pick just one, it would be the SBE ll. The 3.5'' capability is a factor in my decision. The Vinci is only 3''. May or may not affect you, but it does me. They both ''pull up'' very nicely, with the SBE having a slight edge. Regardless of what they say, the Vinci does have recoil. If this is your reason for changing, you may think twice about it. The Vinci is a great gun, but I for one, would never trade an SBE away for one. Hope this helps. Good luck with your decision..Mike
