Ok I have looked at and held every new semi-auto shotgun, and the Vinci is the best fit for me. I really like the way it feels to me. My question however is, do I really need to be able to shoot 3 1/2 shells for duck hunting. I don't goose hunt, just ducks anywhere from 20 yrds to 45 yrds. I was originally going to just get the Super Vinci, but a dealer in my town has a brand new Vinci for $1000. The Super Vinci is $1500. Just wanted some opinions on if 3 1/2 shells are really needed or should I save myself $500. This is a pretty good price for Vinci in my area. Right now I shoot a Rem 870 3" and it works, I just wanted an auto. Thank You

I had the same delima when I bought my Browning, the deciding factor for me was that I could use the 3 1/2 loads for turkey hunting. I don't know if you hunt them or not, but it's a nice option. You can always choose to use 3" shells in a 3 1/2 chamber, but never vice versa-just something to consider.

The MSRP difference between the 2 is less than $200.

I would just buy the one i liked more. I wouldn't buy the Vinci because it was cheaper, nor would i avoid the Super Vinci because it's more expensive.

Just buy what you want.

If you're worried about the money then go buy a Savage s300 (or whatever they are called) and save yourself a bundle.

The super vinci is slightly heavier too btw. So it's not like the super is better in every respect.

I just think it's silly to decide to spend the extra premium on a nice benelli and then pinch pennies over which model.

Thanks guys. I decided on the Super Vinci, I believe I would rather be able to shoot any size shell. Can't wait!

You selected a great gun in the Super Vinci. Good luck this year. If you really want a shotgun that can bring those birds everyone only watches fly over at 50+ yards Heights, then get yourself a Big 10 and watch your hunting partners drool as the birds drop from staggering heights (with Heavy-Shot Duck / Goose or Remington Wingmaster HD loads of course).

Please google 'sky-busting'.

You and your "buddies" that empty out your guns at birds flying at 50+ yards educates the birds, injure birds that later die and aren't recovered (unlawfully i'm sure, whatever state you're in), and give hunters a bad name.

Skybusting is NOT an acceptable form of hunting. It's a sure way of violating wanton waste laws.

No one here is cheap enough to buy a 10 gauge for skybusting.

worst advice EVER: 'get a 10 gauge so you can be a sky-buster like me!' ugggggggh.......

 Couldn't have said it better myself. If you don't have the skills to call and decoy- then learn, skybusting is for jerks who can't do anything else.
