I’d like to say that Benelli’s videos had nothing to do with my decision to buy an M2 and M4. I’d also like to say I’m not too old to date Texas Babe XoX. But that would be wrong. The latest video from Big Ben tempts water-fowlers with the Super BlackEagle II. While I was thinking that reliability was the SBE II’s unique selling point—the gun eats everything and doesn’t so much as burp afterwards—the Italian company claims world superiority in the weight, speed and comfort categories. Or is that all three combined? Anyway, the cheapest [wood stock] Super BlackEagle II retails at $1569. The Performance Center pistol-grip version will set you back a not inconsiderable $2949. So worth it—if only because you can email friends a link to this video with “My gun” in the subject bar.
