I've been looking at getting a Franchi shotgun for the last 3 months, yesterday I went into the shop to look again. My wife accompanied me and while I was handling the franchi's I noticed her asking to see the Benelli Legacy shotguns, after a while she came over and showed me what she wanted for our 6 year aniversary next week. A Benelli Legacy 12 gauge with the pheasants engraved in it. I don't know you if you guys have ever seen one of these but they are GORGEOUS. Well, the franchi is on the backburner for a while, how can I say no to a girl that loves to shoot as much as I do. idaho-ar15

reconxl, I got it for %10 above cost, $1175 plus tax. Expensive but something that she can cherish and hopefully hand down to our kids if we are ever blessed with a couple of future shooters. idaho-ar15

I have no use for shotguns. But if my wife wanted one, I'd buy it. Then, I'd show her the AR's my dealer has. "Dontcha want one of these, dear????" What's hers is mine, and what's mine is mine.[:D]

Outstanding! I told my wife I'd much rather put money into guns for her than jewelry. She hasn't actually taken me up on it yet, but I think there's a piece of Combat Tupperware out there somewhere with her name on it.

garandman, check out these two URL's, they show some of her collection along with mine. [url]www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=40406[/url] [url]www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=40238[/url] We shoot trap twice a month and she runs 100 rounds through her shotgun. Sunday while shooting her v-match at 200 yards at a 600 yard reduced target she put all 10 shots inside the 8 ring!! idaho-ar15 Edited by garandman to activate links.
