    I agree 100% PLUS under extreme stress, many folks, even experienced shooters have a tendency to short stroke the piece and that leads to the double feed and a very difficult and time consuming attempt to clear. Better to shift to the handgun to stay in the fight. Try a pump at a good IDPA shoot where it's just the prone position and a time constraint then think of extending that to a fight to survive. I'll take my Benelli M121 everytime.

    I read somewhere about a Stoeger 2000 semi-auto that was a poor man's version of the Benelli and made by another subsidiary of the same parent company. Does anyone have any experience with it?

    I think I'd rather have a used Benelli than a new poor man's version of anything. Granted...poor man's version doesn't necessarily mean defective or less effective. But you get what you pay for and I value my life enough to save the money. For that matter, why not get the Remington 11-87 semi. Not a Benelli, but it's still a police standard and it's not a "knockoff."

    I wouldn't hesitate to trust my life to it.
    I have the precursor to the M90 -- the M121. I have done better with it on a Sporting Clays course than I ever did with a Browning Citori O/U. But for semis on that kind of exercise/sport...remember that most combat ammo is "high brass" and most sport ammo is "low brass" and that makes cycling more problematic for a gun designed for combat. Lack of ooomph!

    I'd like to have a semi-auto shotgun --- because for many years, we raised protection dogs, so if we were in some odd situation, we'd have a leash in one hand to direct the dog and then would have liked a semi-auto so I could have used it with the other hand.
    I would still like one, but these days, the dogs bark and I go see with a Mossberg 500.
