  1. 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.
  2. Me too. That would not be a good move..
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Those are some very small ducks you got there, Matt. Very nice, but small..
  7. 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
  8. It is a gun with very little recoil.
  9. Or maybe a new ''Red Ryder'', but be careful so you don't shoot your eye out..
  10. What type of shells were you shooting? I own a SBE ll and a SBE l, as well. They do have recoil, more than a gas operated gun, but nothing that I can't handle. Mike
  11. They made wooden stocks for the SBE l..Mike
  12. That will shoot an eye out..Way to go Tucker..

    Benelli Nova

    Sure. You can have it dipped. Many gunsmiths offer the service, or can have it done. I had a SBE l dipped by Gander Mountain, and it turned out great. There are a few companies that do that full time out there. Do a search on this, here on the Benelli forum and I'm sure you'll find some names and other related info..Good luck, Mike
  14. Nice lookin' picture, Mudhen. Everything is froze up, up here. Enjoy the Holidays..Mike
  15. On a lighter note, I just DVR'ed the episode where they go to the Hampton's for the weekend. The ''shrinkage''/ugly baby/stolen lobster/seeing Georges girlfriend naked episode. A true classic.
  16. Made in Milwaukee. About 30 miles from me. Couldn't be much more convenient. Let the grievance's begin.
  17. Where does one go to buy a ''Festivus Pole''. I have issues, as well..Mike
  18. That's normal. Wait till you shoot some big stuff out of it, you may not have to eject, just push the forearm forward..
  19. I think the .665 will do you proud. I have one for an SBE l and it is adequate, not great. It really patterns well with the #7's. With #6's it is middle of the road. They will work with you if you don't like the results. I would call them and talk to them, and get their opinion. (probably the .665). Good bunch of guys. Good luck, Mike
  20. Way to go, Mudhen. I was wondering when we were going to get some of your annual duck hunting pictures. Well done, my friend. You're not missing anything in Wi. We are froze up, solid..Mike

    True Grit Remake

    This does look like it is going to be a good movie. From the trailers that I have seen, I am not going to miss it. America needs a new, good western. They need to make more westerns and less of that futuristic crap.
  22. My Vinci shot high also. I also called C.S., so there were at least two calls (lol). There have been many complaints about this on this forum, and I know that C.S. was called many times about it. I don't get it either. The gun needs to shoot where you point it, and if you want to float the target, then you shim, not the other way around. Besides that, the shims don't allow for enough adjustment to lower POI 8 to 10 inches. It drives me crazy..I agree that when a guy spends $1500 on a shotgun, it should shoot where he points the damn thing..Mike
  23. Generally, the tighter the choke the better. Shots taken during turkey hunting are usually on the long side, so the tight choke allows a denser pattern at these ranges. There are many chokes to chose from, and many types of shells and pellet sizes to factor in. You must find the combination that suits your gun. You must pattern your gun to find the best results. It is also a good idea to pattern the gun so you know the POI. They don't all shoot where you point. Good luck. Mike
  24. That is a stud of a buck. He looks like he is 24'' wide, and tall. Wow!! You guys had a bang up season. Muzzle loader or bow? Well done..Mike
  25. I say that it is shooters choice. It is not going to hurt the gun either way. When was the last time your gun wouldn't shoot because the firing pin spring was weak? If all my guns had exposed hammers, I would not consider putting them away cocked. Therefore, I drop the hammer on all my guns. (When I remember to do so). I am getting old!! Mike
