How about your Franchj and doing-it-all with style? If you got it, flaunt it.

I have a Urika 2 and love the thing, had a Franchi 712 for a while and was a light carry gun . Should have kept that one. Wouldn’t mind picking up a 720 one day if I find one.

I've owned most of them and shot a lot of stuff with them. I won't get in the weeds with my favorites, but I have to agree with the the guys who suggested the Benelli m2 (or m1) for your purpose. Nothing wrong with the SBE, but the more you shoot 3.5's, the more you realize how dumb you are. smile

You can find a benelli ethos for 1400-1600 if you look around. I regret trading the one I had and am looking at either getting another or taking a look at the new SBE 3in version

Owned a lot of shotguns in my time , pretty damned hard to beat and 870 with a light contour barrel and remchokes for ultimate versatility and reliability in a pump. You want an semi auto though. My first thought on this is fit and feel for me that's an M1 Benelli Super 90 with the 26 in barrel. I bought mine 1994 when the first run of wood stocks came out, traded a nice 24" barreled Montefeltro and cash for it. Would really never need another shotgun as it does everything in the field so well. But variety is the spice of life and I've shot enough that I can shoot about any well fitting shotgun. I like.my M37's, my 97 win, and 870's , 1100 , m11's, A-5's, dbl's and o/u's. Like I said it's great if you can pick right the first time but if you don't trade it
It's way cheaper than trading women or getting rid of them. Good luck I think you will need it there is a pile of options out there to sort thru. Mb
