I’ve yet to figure a name out for it, since I haven’t had a chance to shoot it, yet — but yesterday I got a smoking deal on a Benelli Nova Tactical 12 gauge shotgun. The plan is to add a +2 round extender to the magazine tube eventually. This model has the typical Benelli combat “ghost ring” sights — superb for fast target acquistion. The pump action is smooth, and I’ve yet to lubricate the thing. There is a magazine arrestor button on the pump to allow the chamber to be loaded without having a round leave the magazine. Total capacity right now: 6 rounds with one in the pipe? It can fire 2 3/4″ to 3.5″ shells. It’s very light, modern-looking, and shoulders very quickly.

I’d love one of their M4 Super 90 semiautos or the MR1 carbine in 5.56mm but we’re a bit tight on the budget at the moment. Still, a great buy from a great company.
