Purchased a SS after using one at the gun club for a couple of weeks. The gun fits me and points very easy, for me anyway. I have shot it with sporting clays and skeet. The gun just seems to find the targets for you. Now I did shoot 2 rounds of trap a couple of days ago and have to say out of the box this, is it's weakest game. The gun would perform much better with a higher comb (available) for trap. I would almost consider weights to slow the gun down on the trap range. Most misses were because the barrel went past the target and the brain forgot to pull the trigger. Granted I have only owned a SS for about 2 weeks but the gun is worth the money. Now in 6 months to 1 year after picking up shells and forming bad habits with the SS, it could all change.

I shot 14 different O/U while searching for a gun to purchase and ended up with an auto-loader. Man I hate picking up empties but it was the best shooting gun I ran into.

Well, still shooting the ss for trap, skeet and sporting clays. I had to pick up a barrel weight for trap, hoping it would slow down the gun. It worked but now to shoot trap, I have to put on a barrel weight and pick up shells. Well last week, I forgot to put on the weight and shot some of my best rounds with the gun. I didn't realize I forgot the weight until we were done shooting. I am thinking the weight was just for training myself to shoot trap. The question is why don't you see more Benelli auto loaders? Not sure, but price has something to do with it and then you have to ask if there is a difference between the SBE and the sporting guns? I don't hunt so I picked up a sporting gun. My personal guess is the fact that you hear the gun cycle and it spits out shells. It sure would be nice to open a breach and grab my empties like most shooters do. Is the gun better than the 391? Who the heck knows and who cares how a gun cycles as long as it does it. I would shoot the cheapest gun on the market with a smile if I hit even most of the targets I see. It's about breaking targets and having fun and not about the tool you use to do it. When considering any gun, find someone with the model and shoot the darn thing, consider it a test drive and do it before you purchase any gun
