    I was glad that I owned a few 40 cals back then.

    I've heard nothing but good things with the latest gen. The 1st gen had some issues that required upgrades. I'm looking at the 1301 Tactical or the Comp so I can add the Kick Off system to it for the Mrs. It will be her shotgun first and if it works as well as advertised, I'm going to get another one for me.
    Cause the good old days weren't always good, and tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems...

    Benelli M4. I already found someone who will buy it despite the problems I had so in a tremendously disappointing way, problem solved I guess.
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

I am considering/debating in my mind selling off some calibers I only have one pistol chambered for, and even some pistols in 9mm that are redundant, or only used on the range. With the current political and social situation, I am feeling it is more important to be well supplied in a few calibers than to be spread out over several calibers and platforms merely for fun. YMMV.
    I consolidated calibers too and it's worked out pretty well for me. Only having to keep a good supply of 9mm, 12 gauge, and 7.62x39 is way less expensive than adding 5.56 again, .45 ACP, .22LR so every other shot it can malfunction, .357 magnum, etc. I can HYPOTHETICALLY afford to shoot the guns I really like more, focus my training time on those platforms, and ultimately have more fun shooting if I'm not spending two days packing and unpacking. I used to shoot with a guy that only had two guns and I envy him sometimes. So much less time getting ready to go the range, cleaning, and unpacking.
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    Why not send it back to Benelli and let them make good on it?

    ^^ This. You obviously wanted the gun. What made you give up on it?

    Not enough more reliable that the Marines didnít dump semi in favor for semi auto, with performance being better for small men and almost all women...

    Did you try shouldering it tighter?

    I sort of understand - you expect a $2000 gun to be bullet proof, and when that doesn't happen, it's a big let down. When the most expensive (by far) AR I have had to go in for service I was super pissed because $500 ones never had to...
