It's always been hard for my wife to lug around the heavier autos and pump shotguns. We looked at O/U ans SxS's for her but the right shoulder fit was always a problem until now. She found the Bennelli to be the perfect bird gun, weighing in at a mere 5lbs. 2oz. This gun is a beauty, from the wood to the action is total quality. Best part is, you can get it for a little less than a thousand dollars.
