UGLY?

That's beautiful in comparison to this offering from the same consortium, via Stoeger.

Will it float? What does it owe to Da Winky? I liked the "Montefeltro" cause I could also see old hooknose in the portrait every time I saw one. Must be other Italian "patronage guns" but I can't think of any. Roma has been done. How bout Fiorenza, Milano, Venezia? I would like to have a gun named Castagneto Carducci for the poet and his trees.

If there's an "Ugly Over Priced Gun Award" Benelli should win it hands down.

It's a tribute to the new Star Trek movie.

I'd argue with the overpriced part, and my sense of aesthetics includes consideration of intended purpose and working environment.

Both Benelli's I've acquired have been new. Neither needed any cleaning of cosmoline or machine chips before use. They both work 100% of the time with a drop of light oil between the bolt head and body being the only lubrication needed. They completely strip with no tools, and have never required parts including firing pins. They all come with five chokes from cylinder through full, and a decent hard case. Overpriced at $1,300? Hardly... for the modern design and superb manufacture they represent value instead.

Benelli makes for a great 'rain gun'. If it's going to be wet, this is the gun of choice. It doesn't care about the weather one bit and won't cut into your Bourbon time afterwards with a lengthy cleanup and stock pull to dewater.

Why limit yourself? There's a whole wide world of interesting shotguns out there that don't have two barrels. Doubleguns are fun, but modern stuff has it's place also.

To each his own, but no polymer (plastic) shotgun is worth more than $500, especially one with that much ugly. It reminds me of a robot, and a robot has no soul. I have garden hoes with better lines.

Must go. I'm late for my Lead Pencil Society meeting.
