I have a sport 11 on order. Does anyone know about the difference in recoil between the gas operated semis and the inertia system from bennelli? Bad shoulder reguires the least amount of recoil

It weighs about 7 1/2 lbs it shouldn't be to bad. You could at weight to the magazine or a magazine recoil reducer.

I have one. Shoot 7/8 or 1 oz. loads & you shouldn't have any problems.

A coouple of suggestions on handling recoil:
1. make sure your bend of the elbow is at 90 degrees to your body to create a deep "pocket" at your shoulder and make sure you mount the gun firmly in the fleshy part of that pocket on your chest muscle (not on the collar bone!)
2. try a Browning Reactar Shooting Harness - It has a 5mm thick, lightweight Beta Gel that forms to your body in the harness or you can buy an individual pad to sew in clothes. It claims to reduce peak recoil by up to 30 percent. Heree is a link with both. Note, the harness already includes a pad. http://www.wholesalehunter.com/product/browning/brngdes/Shootingwear.HTM
3. Try some yoga stretching exercises for your shoulder to add flexibility and strengthen. Yoga did wonders for my chronic shoulder problems
Hopefully that is a different spin that is helpful. I shoot my M1 Practical and M1014 and have no issues now. And that can mean 75+ slugs in an afternoon. Good luck,
