      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I have a Beretta 391, I've used it in some nasty weather without a problem. I would highly recommend the Beretta.

Good Luck,
Ben

the sbe is the way to go. they dont jam 4 of my huntin buddies got them smooth accurate and they got good range. if you wanted to do this with a 1200 dollar gun yoou could bury it in mud for a week come back clean out the barrel and it will fire right off no probs. now thats reliability. for geese put a 31/2 T shot and there deadly there dead on impact. as far as range and accuracy id put the power up there with my ten gauge ithica. and a whole lot lighter. but with the sbe your definately getting what you paid for. the 870 is also a good choice for a pump and cheap. but my next will be the sbe.

I don't have the SBE but the super 90, and this thing is the best waterfowl gun I ever owned. you can only shoot 3 inchers from the 90, so I would think the SBE would be even better.
what I like about this gun, is that I can go from grouse hunting low brass shells to top mags, and this this works the same. I wish my winchester could do that.
make sure to get a camo gun, well worth the extra bucks.

I am looking to buy a new shotgun and was trying to decide between the Benelli Super Black Eagle or the New Berreta Xtrema. I need a 12 gauge, 3 1/2, 26 inches, that can handle cold weather and water. I hunt here in MN and also in the river bottoms in WS. I plan to use it for upland and waterfowl, and possibly a little turkey. I think synthetic stocks would be better prefferably in camo. I also like pumps but don't mind auto's. Reliability is key, I don't need it to jam up on me when I've got geese overhead. I had my heart set on the super black eagle because I've shot them before and really like them but also like the xtrema for it's simplicity in cleaning, (it comes apart in only 3 pieces). If anyone has shot them and knows anything about them I could use some help. Thanks.

A rem 870 express will never let you down, you could use it as an oar or a push pole in a pinch and it still will work but it is not in the same class as the guns you are looking at.
Good luck picking one out!

I shoot a Montefeltro and it shoots the cheapest low brass to the heaviest 3 mags. I like this gun cuz it is light and it comes up nice. I shot 4 boxes today of 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2 shot and I was wearing just a t shirt and I cant even tell i was shooting a gun as far as my shoulder feels. Someday I want to get a SBE but I dont hunt geese so I figure right now I dont need it at least that what my wife says but i want one. I shot a Super X2 that my buddy has and he even liked my Benelli over his Super X2 after he shot it a few times. My dad has a Beretta and i shot it. Its a nice gun but I would go with a benelli. I think Beretta owns Benelli is what i was told. Is this true i dont know but I go for the SBE all the way.

Performance worth the Price!

I shoot the Xtrema, awesome gun. A little bigger physicaly than the sbe, but I like the way it fits me and thats what counts. I can shoot the cheapest low base lead shot(7/8 oz shot) and it will cycle every time were as the sbe's that people I hunt with have they have to shoot at least 1 oz loads. The extrema is built like a tank! And the recoil reduction that thing has will amaze you, check it out. I got a good deal on mine down at Ostrom's sporting goods down in Dalton. Give me a holler if you have any more questions.

As you may have noted from my post that I was thinking of getting a SBE myself. Well I have had it for about two weeks now and love it. I know many other people that have Benelli's (super 90, montefeltro, M-1, SBE) and they love them. Have heard good things about the Berretta as well. The SBE just felt better to me. It had less weight and felt less "bulky" compared to the Berretta. Berretta does have a better camo patter on it. It is a nice cattail/marsh camo compared to having to go with a woodland in the SBE. I have the black synthetic with the 26".

Thanks everyone for getting back to me. It sounds as if both are great guns, I guess the only way to decide which gun to buy is to shoot a few rounds out of each gun and figure out which one fits me better. The added weight of the Beretta doesn't bother me because it helps my swing. Although it might be bothersome carrying it throught the woods or the fields after birds. Thanks again for the input.

I went through the same decision last year and decided on the Extrema - I have been very happy with my decision thus far. I don't think you can go wrong with either. I thought the Extrema fit me a little better. I'd shoulder them both and see how they feel.
