1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Benelli doesn't make many "cheeper" models. Have you considered a Stoeger?

    Beretta ES-100 is a copy of Benelli SBE at half price, Since Beretta owns Benelli, parts are available.

    The Stoeger Shotgun probably has the worse trigger I have ever seen. All of the Stoeger shotguns that come to our club have had trigger problems from doubling or not resetting for the second shot or not hitting the primer hard enough to dent it. All of the owners have said it was a waste of money.

    The Stoeger auto's are as good as the Benelli's, just plain janes. As far as the ES-100, it's a good gun but it has stamped on it made in Turkey or at least mine does I believe. One of my close friends has a 2000 and it has over 60,000 rounds through it with no repairs needed. He also has a 3901 with that many rounds with no repairs. Montefeltro is a good way to go also as we have several at the club that have a high round total with no repairs. Jackie B.

    The Beretta ES100 Pintails were made in Italy, not Turkey. Solid guns. I've been taking mine out for the dove season for the last 15 years. Not a single hiccup. John

    I have a Montefeltro that I'd be interested in selling. I believe it has a 26" barrel.

    It has been VERY lightly used, and is in fantastic shape. I bought it to teach my son to shoot.

    Funny thing about kids, they get bigger. And while this is a standard sized gun, I think my son can manage another gun. (Besides, I bought him an SBE for duck hunting, and I've suggested that he use that gun for skeet after putting a lighter spring in it.)

    In any case, I did notice last week on our trip to the skeet club that the Montefeltro has a single "ding" in the stock. I have no idea how it happened - probably in the rack at the club.

    This gun is a skeet target SMASHER! It points effortlessly, and is a real pleasure to shoot.

    I've owned the gun for two years. I bought it at a 5-stand shoot having supposedly only had a box of shells through it. And on that day, I believed it, because the gun was basically new.

    My son and I have probably run 2,000 rounds through it over the past couple of years, and as stated, I believe the only defect is that ding in the stock (grrrr!!!).

    It will come with a case, chokes, wrench, and the "box candy" that everyone else throws away.

    Because I haven't previously considered selling it, I'll have to come up with a price. And you'll obviously want pictures. I can't provide pictures until Sunday at the earliest. So if you can wait until then, we can sort it out.

    I'm constantly adding guns to my safe, and to rationalize my gun-buying frenzy, I probably should set one free once in a while.

    Of course, my son will be pissed off when I tell him I've offered the gun for sale. When I bought the gun at the club, one of the members approached me saying, "That's really nice of you to buy a gun like that for your son." To which I replied, "It's not his. It's mine." PM me, and we'll exchange email addresses if you're still interested.

    One other point:

    I'm a pretty obsessive gun cleaner, and I've tried to instill the same obsession in my son. So this gun has been very well cared for. We have 3 Benelli autoloading shotguns in the safe, and they all perform flawlessly.
