          I have the 12 gauge supernova and i love it. I use it for duck hunting. Very reliable gun.

            I dont think it is as practical or reliable with as many parts as lets say, a remingtom 870.

              Bought one used- cleaned it up, and took it out for some informal, winter close range patterning and a quick bunny walk. No luck with the critters that day, but it patterns very nicely with Federal Hi-Brass #6 out of its mod. choke.

              So far, I'm pretty pleased. I love how easy it breaks down. I enjoy its different, somewhat sci-fi appearance. —Ultimately, I don't care about that stuff, so long as it's practical. "Function before fashion", and all that.

              The worst I've heard from others about the Benelli Nova 20 ga. is that it feels a bit thick to some folks, and the "clacky" forend. (I'm not bothered by either of these issues.)

              My own research tells me that replacement bits are pricey though. A new barrel (here in Canada, anyway) approaches nearly enough the cost of a new shotgun. The magazine end cap is priced in the neighbourhood of $60.00, which strikes me as insane...so I suppose I'll make extra efforts not to lose any of this firearm's doo-dads and pieces!

              It's quite possible/likely that (overall) the 870 is a better buy. If you can, try them both out. I own a Mossberg 500 12 ga., and the aforementioned Benelli Nova 20 ga. I'm quite pleased with both...maybe someday I'll pick up an 870 as well!

                          That's about as good an answer as there is, redangus.

                          There is no doubt that a .30-06 Spgfld is more than adequate to actually slay a whitetail.

                          My 13+ year old Black Lab is still plugging along. Not sure how much or if he will hunt this fall. The real bad news is that my 8-year old Lab, Scout,...
