Which Shotgun

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a 12ga shotgun for my son. I'm up in the air between a Winchester Super X3 and a Beretta AL391. Any suggestions or comments would be great.

The Beretta is a really nice shotgun, shoots and looks great. My buddy bought his two sons each one for college graduation. The only thing is that they only hold 4 shells total.

you can't go wrong with either one.

I've got an SX2 and love it. I've also had a Beretta A390 that was a nice gun but it just wasn't the right fit for me.

Either way, you've got a lucky kid if their getting either of these guns.

I have never shot an X3, but can tell you the Beretta 391 is a wonderful firearm. Rattlereel said it best, get it fit, do it right it is an investment that will last a lifetime if taken care of. Good luck and let us know how you turned out.

I vote for the 391. I have one and love it and highly recommend it. As for only holding 4 shells, I believe it comes set up to hold 3 shells. There are instructions you can follow to make it carry 4 shells. Not sure why that's a downside. I left mine at 3 and to be honest I've never missed the extra shell or two.

It is all about what gun fits the best. I personally own a Berreta Extrema 2 w/ kickoff and love it. It is by far the lightest felt recoil on the market.

I know of 11 Beretta 390 or 391 owners and every single one of them loves them. I know of 2 that own the Winnies and 1 likes it while the other has had problems.

As mentioned, fit is important. Berettas come with shims to change the stock fit so you can customize without messing with the stock.

My vote is easily the Beretta.

We have tried a lot clay pigeons with those boys, They just don't seem to get any better. So we just laugh at them. Besides I need someone along who is a worse shot than me.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I ended up getting a 3 1/2" SX2 at Scheels for $699. The same SX3 was $999. I know the SX2 is a year old model but I figured it is still a new gun and for $300 difference I hope I made the right decision.

thats a great gun and you shouldn't have any problems with it, they also pattern extremely well. i shot one for a few years, and but got the 1st sale of an SX3 at the gunshop when they got onto the market, i previously shot one and absolutly fell in love with its handling. not to complain about the x2, but the x3 just had a near perfect fit.. then i put the one of the casting shims in it and that was the frosting on the cake.

Nope, I've had it in the goose blind, duck boat, pheasant walks and the deer stand and it still looks brand new.

    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
