Well I decided to treat my self this year for my birthday so I went out and bought this today.BounceBreak%20Dance


Its a Benelli M4 Super 90.  Just took it out and ran a box of shells through it and it shoots real nice.  With the ghost ring sights and the pistol grip and the angle of the stock it mounts super fast and is very comfortable.  Now I just need to sign up for some tactical shotgun classes.  Big%20Smile

Congratulations, very fine firearm.  Brady and I both have one that we shoot Three Gun Matches with and it is by far the best tactical shotgun I've ever used.
 
Now you gotta get one of these.

That is actually why I chose the one with the pistol grip.  Then when a bad guy breaks into my house all I will have to do is show him the gun and hit will sh*t his pants in fear because it has a pistol grip and know that he stands no chance against a shotgun with a pistol grip.  Top%20Secret

Sarah Brady says that the bad guys will snatch the gun out of your hand and use it against you!!Shocked  I guess that's why all those convenience store clerks are vaulting the counter and taking those guns away from all them bad guys all the time!!  Never thought of THAT!    Whacko

I wholeheartedly concur. This would be a fantastic setup, especially with a Laser and touchpad for those close in point and click situations

I don't really like the whole battery thing, but if I get a quick release mount I could probably live with it. 
What do you think about the Trijicon reflex?

They're nice, but for that weapon I prefer the EOTech.

The Trijicon Reflex is not as bright or easy to pick up quickly.
 
Battery useage at the default brightness setting of 12
Type "N" Alkaline batteries: 200 hours of continuous use
Type "AA" Alkaline batteries: 1000 hours of continuous use
 
The AA model is the way to go because it last so much longer, batteries are easy to find and most likely you will have some other gear on you that also uses AA that you can rob if your EOTech needs new batteries.

Check out the new T1 or H1 Aimpoint....Great battery life, unobtrusive and VERY light weight.

Those Aimpoints are tempting I really like the small size, I have played around with both the Aimpoint and Eotech and in my opinion the Eotech is much faster.  I also had issues shooting support side with the Aimpoint, I had a harder time finding the target for some reason, with the Eotech it was just right there.  It could obviously be remedied with some training though. 
My biggest issue is I hate to have a sight that relies solely on batteries.  But when it comes down to it chances of me using this gun for self defense is slim but if that happened I would hate to have it fail.  But I guess that is where muscle memory comes in and with a shotgun you just need to point and shoot anyway. 

Another question, has anyone tested to see how long the Eotech will last with Lithium AA batteries?

First, I would like to say very nice choice. I've had the similar Super Black Eagle for several years and it shoots 100% of the time. The Benelli aluminum receivers make handling those guns a real pleasure.
I don't know how long the lithiums will last. One thing for sure, when they run out of juice it is almost instantaneous. Other types of batteries start to lose power more gradually and you can change them with a little more leeway.
