Check out the Franchi. Same gun made in the same factory as Benelli part are even interchangeable from what I've checked into and a lot less expensive. I shoot the 20 Gauge affinity in mossy oak and love it. Looking for the 12 in 3/12 with a 28 inch barrel for a little bigger dusk gun. Check it out think you will be impressed.

[SIZE="4"]I have a Benelli Legacy 20 ga. I use it bird hunting some. Unless I’m using a Silver Pigeon 20ga.

If you want one gun to do it all, it’s hard to beat a SBE. I still have one of the first production models (1992) and I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve had an issue with it; i.e. jam, FTC, etc. It’s been the demise of many a feathered friend and I’ve shot literally thousands and thousands of rounds through it. From the heaviest of turkey/duck loads to the lightest target loads, it delivers without failure. Last year I traded another gun for a SBE2 and haven’t had a single issue with it since I’ve owned it. If you’re going to buy a gun to do it all from field to blind to woods - it’s hard to beat.

Probably going to sit in the safe! Lol may dove hunt and shoot a few skeet. Used a Córdoba before and it just does not kick and easy to shoot.

whatever you decide on, I would suggest a 20 or 28 ga.
My favorite shotgun in my safe is a 28ga. Silver Pigeon.
If you want a bird gun and a sporting clay / skeet gun.. believe me, small gauge is the way to go. I quail hunting and pheasant hunt all over the country. The 28 ga. Will spoil you it is surprisingly capable of killing birds.. it will make you a better wing shooter.

Definitely stay away from 12ga. With today’s loads and technology a 12ga doesn’t shine over a 20 like they use to. Cheaper and more fun to shoot as well.

A buddy has a 20 gauge Córdoba and that thing is sweet. Will 20 be good for ducks or turkeys?

20 ga is very effective on ducks and turkeys, especially if you shoot 3” heavy loads.
