I know that my beloved Marine Corps uses the Benelli M4 for it's tactical shotgun needs, but why would anyone pay $1500 for a shotgun? The tried and true Remington 870 cost a lot less, and works just as well if not better than the Benelli. Besides being cool, the only thing I can think of is that the Benelli must have much less recoil. Can someone please open my eyes, and tell me what I'm missing? I've never shot the Benelli M4, but I have owned a Benelli M90 hunting shotgun. It didn't shoot any better than anything else I've hunted with.
