I’ve got three Benelli’s and never had any problems. Competitive shooters don’t use them largely in part due to the recoil of an inertia operated gun. The comfort tech stock mitigates most of that recoil but most competitive shooters that I have seen used traditional shotguns with wood stocks.
I’ve wanted one for years and I finally bought one. Only I bought the 3 1/2 inch version because I like the versatility and I goose hunt. As you know, it’s a pretty big initial investment but worth every penny in my opinion.
