Benelli owners swear by their shotguns, and much of that loyalty comes thanks to the uber-reliable Inertia Driven operating system. By utilizing three simple parts—a rotating bolt head, the bolt itself and a stiff inertia spring—the Inertia Drive system harnesses the power of the recoiling shotgun to quickly and reliably cycle action with either 2¾ or 3-inch loads. And thanks to a ComforTech stock, that felt recoil is greatly reduced by nearly 50 percent according to the company. This proprietary Benelli technology consists of a specially designed stock and gel recoil pad that also limits muzzle climb to put you back on target quickly, something you’ll come to appreciate if you whiff the first shot or are hoping to double-up on a pair of strutting toms. Coated with Realtree APG camo. ($1,469; benelliusa.com)
