Q:
Got my brand-new Benelli 20 gauge Camo Youth Model yesterday. I sincerely believe that it is the best buying decision I ever made. I researched it for months on the basis of cost and function, type of action, number of barrels. It is lightweight, compact, and it shoulders perfectly. The pump action has a very light feel, but it snaps shut easily and positively. I am certain that this will be my best bird season ever. But I still wonder...How long is that plastic going to last?

Old Timer! Well, I like that. But I stay in shape so I can enjoy the outdoor activities, as they are the most important things in life. At 61, I can still do 80 push-ups. Can You? I have hang-glided, motocrossed, played all sports, bicycle-raced, and the previous generation saw the invention of the model-T! But it makes my heart glad to see the younger generation take an interest in what is most important. May you keep the tradition and enjoy it!

I bought my first benelli a black nova in 1999, and it still looks brand new. Nothing wrong with the plastic. I bought a M2 around 2005 and I use it at the gun club, duck hunting, deer hunting, and turkey hunting and the camo is just starting to wear, but just from the bolt sliding back and forth. You will be able to give that gun to your children.

Well. At last. A kindred spirit. The idea of having a brand-new rifle and all the ammo I could shoot was always mind-boggling, but I failed the physical: 4-F. But I rode against those (you)airborne guys and marines in a triathlon relay, and I must admit that I never saw anything like it. I came around a corner in the rain at Callaway Gardens and a bunch of military guys were tangled up in the bushes, covered in mud and blood and leaves. Looked like a car wreck. But here they come, and next thing I know they all around me going balls out. I could only catch the guys who had too much muscle to cool. Chevy 210 post? A luxury vehicle. Mine was a 150 business sedan with a Special High Performance Corvette 427. I could nail the throttle at idle and it would smoke the tires and wheelie when it hooked up. Always wanted a blower. Then there was the 327 Sprite and the 283 Sunbeam Alpine. Guess the Corvair off-road vehicle was next. Had a friend who was in the 82nd. So was his dad in WWII. Good to hear from you.

here is a story about a bennelli that a guy on our hunting club bought he shot it at a target 60 yards and could barley put any shot in it with a 12 ga
then he tried goose hunting and the sun of a gun fell apart its a true story it was a bennelli nova so we like remington or browning better

After the race, those guys were walking around like they just got up and were looking for something to do. It suddenly occurred to me just what kind of people we have serving our country, and who fight for our freedoms with guns and knives and bare hands. And they seem to enjoy it! Those were absolute the toughest mofos I have ever seen. We won the mixed relay (one girl on the team),, solely on the performances of my ex-wife and her boyfriend (a swimmer and marathoner) But I've never forgotten that performance. They sure smoked my ass!

And, Oh Yes! If you are huntingnand are not in that kind of shape and you fall through the ice or fall into the ravine, or if the local hillbillies get after you (Squeal, Boy), then you're gonna die.

Blackdawgz,

Your plastic will last ok, unless you are going to dove hunt in Argentina soon. The camo - different story. If you baby it and take care of it you will do ok.
WARNING - do not get any kind of bug spray or solvents anywhere near the camo or your hands. It will start doing the Salvador Dali or worse. I looked at a used SBE last year and the reason the guy was getting rid of it was that he had turkey hunted with it and got bug spray all over it. It looked like a 3 year old with finger paint had got a-holt of it. Bad.

Thanks. Yeah, I heard about the camo finish already. One of my fellow slaves bought a SBE2 on my advice and sprayed some gun solvent that is like brake cleaner on it. Made a mess out of a brand new beautiful shotgun.

Liked the "deliverance" joke. It's funny as long as it ain't us on the butt end of that!
