    Call me when they make a 3.5" and it's been on the market for 3 years.

    Too rich, though i wish them success; 8# shotgun is ideal for me (6' 4", 215# 66 yrs) so my favorite scattergun is the Benelli Supernova- recently purchased Beretta A300, 7.2 #, but fits me just right with both stock spacers, fit me better than the higher priced A400. It's mostly about the fit- both the Supernova and previous Beretta 3901 have been very reliable!

    I've handled them. It comes up nice, pistol grip kinda of an odd/steep angle for your trigger hand to hold. Better feeling than I expected it to be, but still not motivating me to buy one. I like several other guns better.

    I've called several gun shops in my area. So far, no one has any in stock. I'm still looking.

    Gander in Jackson Tn has a couple of them on the rack. They may be decent guns, but if I’m gonna pay that much for a 3” shotgun, I’ll just pay a little more for a fabarms waterfowler. If I had that much money to spend on a shotgun that is. They are too rich for me. If I had less kids, I could afford more shotguns. What was I thinking? Lol

    Lol I agree. I want it to send steel down range where I’m pointing every time I pull the trigger. It doesn’t have to be pretty, but I want it to be rugged, able to take the abuse of a hard hunting season and keep running. My biggest issue with it is that it’s over priced. 3” gun priced up there with 3.5” guns.

    The BPS here had one and while it has a couple of Cabbage Patch Doll aspects, it did seem well balanced and pointed easily.
