    I shot a Remington 1100 3" mag for years. Reliability sucked at first -- I damn near threw it in the river one day. Gave it to my best buddy who worked for Cabela's...said, "If you can't get this thing shooting right, I never want to see it again." He took to Cabela's product specialists (this was back in early 1990's) and they said hose down the rings and mechanisms with synthetic lubricant, like Rem Oil. That gun never missed a shot after that! Loved it!

    I'm lefty, and finally got the $$$ for a lefty gun in 2001. Benelli SBE. It has been great and never failed me in the river, marsh or field. I hunt waterfowl in the Platte River here in Nebraska late in to the season. Sand, water, dirt, vegetation, freezing temps, it just shoots.

    Hunted with my college buddies a few weeks back...of the 8 guys sitting in the blind, all but one shot Benelli. The other was shooting a Franchi, which is made by Benelli. We are all in our 50's and have been hunting ducks for 30+ years.

    Benelli sells a mercury recoil reducer, but it adds weight to your stock. Yes, the inertia shotguns kick a little harder than the gas operated guns, but for reliability, it's hard to beat an old SBE.

    I think it’s worth noting, whatever gun you choose, swap out the spring with a Wolff Extra power spring. My guns cycle awesome with those springs
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I did the same. My SBE II did just fine with the Wolff X sting spring, however, the spring improved cycling and shock if I shoot 3.5? loads. The extra light spring helps on the sleet range too.

    Thanks all for the inputs. Went the Stoeger route. First shot out of it produced a goose this weekend. Really solid gun.
