I have recently picked up my new duck hunting gun, The Beretta A400 W/ KICKOFF, and i must say it is the best shooting gun i have ever shot (and it better be for $1600). Needless to say i took out to my property to test it out and ran about 150 shells through it, 100 being light target loads. The gun DID jam one of the light loads early on but after that one it never messed up again. For a comparison on recoil i shot my Remington 11/87 with 3in blind side and then tested it with the Beretta, and all i can say is "WOW". There is a SIGNIFICANT difference in recoil and i could not be happier. Hopefully Ill be able to bag some woodies this year at my property in NC, I will be doing more testing before and ill post my pattern tests up in a couple of weeks. But so far, this is the best Shotgun i have ever shot in terms of recoil and feel good.

Thanks for the information. I have been looking between the A-400 Extreme, new 3 1/2 A-5, and the SBE II. Have pretty much ruled out the SBE II, and recently been recommended the Super Nova and the Maxus. Please keep the information on the A-400 coming in, if all goes well during the re-org at work for my wife and I, I will be purchasing a new gun the first of October. I as well use the 11-87 SuperMag, which will now become my boat anchor.

To be honest, I'd be real jealous if you got one of them new A5's....I'm still in love with my Versa Max, so I can't justify blowin big bucks on a new gun, yet I'm dying to shoot the new gun on the block!

They take trade ins flannel! My buddy has one and I'm afraid to shoot it for the same reason.  I have three camo 12s now.

I could never trade my Remmy, but might hafta add to the family when the time is right! Another hang up is that I wonder what ol Brownings going to come out with next....might be even better???!!! And 3 camo 12s? Sounds like you dont like to trade your guns in either! Lol

you're right I don't get rid of them too many memories. Opening day next week i'll shoot the Gold instead of the Maxus just a habit and if you get the A-5 i'll probably have to as well.  I'll pass em down and hopefully my kids or grand kids when they have them will shoot turkeys ducks and deer with them.  Good luck this year joe
