I prefer gas guns for their recoil mitigating actions.

One of the best purchases I ever made was the M1S90 I bought when they were first showing up 30 or so years ago. H&K was importing them and selling them branded as H&K’s back then. Great shotgun. I’ll never sell it.

Ditto. I bought mine 32 years ago, and it’s one of the few guns I’ve never once thought, “Gee, that new XYZ sure looks nice,” in comparison.




“ Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage [immaturity]. Nonage is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance.”
— Immanuel Kant

I have a M1S90, Ethos in 12g, Legacy in 20g. I also at one time had the Vinci. Never an issue with any of them. 10 year warranties to boot. If you're somewhat budget conscious, look at the new Franchi Affinity 3 line. I was set to buy my son a Benelli Ultralight 20g for his first shotgun for Turkeys....ended up getting the Affinity 3 compact.

All that being said, my Turkey/Duck gun is a Beretta A400 Xtreme.

We use the M2 version with 14 inch barrels.
We have shot low power target ammo, reduced recoil slug and 00 buck and full load ammo and never had a problems at all.
However the rep advised to use full loads only because of the inertia driven system.
But we have not had any problems.
And so easy to clean after a full range day.

I too have an M1S90. It has been very reliable. I’ll never let it go. With 3 inch shells I see no need to shoot 3.5 inch ones. Dead is dead.

I just picked up an Ethos in 28 gauge. I’m really looking forward to wacking some doves and pheasants with it this coming season.
