    My first shotgun I purchased and I love it. I can "protect" my home with it and It'll bust a deer at 100 yards with a wal mart special slug too.:supergrin:

    I have actually been considering one with the pistol grip and ghost ring sights! I would also add a +2 extension.

    I had one but it was prone to short stroking. I really liked the ergonomics and it shot flawlessly, but the short stroking of the action was a problem for me.

    I loved my Benelli Nova and it has many unique features that other pump guns would do well to adapt. Chrome line bore (would solve the 870's chamber problems), etc.

    When I first got mine I felt the same way, I did some reading and found that the gun has this feature when a round is fired it actually engages the slide slightly and I love it now. Mine is the 18.5 inch barrel with the traditional stock. Those 3.5 inch magnum copper plated 000 buck are really fun to shoot

    I had one but recently got rid of mine. It was great but I'm wanting to go the 870 route.

    Never really see anything with it to dump my 500's and 870's.

    But if I didn't have them I'd give it a strong look at.

    Had a Nova SP Tactical in the past.

    Excellent gun, stopped using shotguns for defense and traded it for a rifle (which was traded for a different rifle).

    I would buy one again.

    Absolutely do like them. At my area there isn't a lotta price discount for getting the Nova rather than the Supernova so I didn't buy it at the time once a while back.

    I think it was like $399.99 for the Nova Tactical and the price for the Supernova Tactical with the ghost ring sights and ComfortTech stock (the whole setup I wanted) was like $449.99 at the time- so $400 or $450, I'd just as soon as take the exact one I wanted - for fifty bucks I'll take the upgraded 'better' one. But they didn't have it in stock, I needed to order it, put all the money down etc. and I just passed at the time, still aint got it a year and half later.
