I've shot a few of them, and with the factory choke they hold a good pattern out to 35yds with a 3" shell. If your looking at shooting father I would go with a .665 -.670 choke in them with a 3" and you'll have a good pattern out to 40yds. They don't pattern for beans with a 3-1/2" shell. If you don't like recoil then you may not like the gun because they kick like a mule. They are a great gun to carry, being shorter and lighter, but they do kick.

Yeah I noticed its a very light gun but I have that supernova right now and I don't think recoil could get any worse lol .I bought some remington nitrogen #4 in a three inch shell I'm gonna try out today with the benelli I'm thinking of trading for the mossberg what do u think of this idea?

I would not trade your SuperNova for that Mossberg.  If anything, I would look at getting a Rhino tube for your Nova and using Magblends.

I have the 935 turkey model and like it. Doesn't seem to be much for the recoil usinig 3 inch.
