The Benelli Experience: More about the Ethos
She Doesn’t Want to Like the Benelli Ethos
I am anxiously awaiting the start of the 2021 pheasant season with several wild hunts on my calendar. Recently, while chatting with Babbs of “Women’s Outdoor News,” she suggested that a lighter gun might make my hunts more enjoyable! This isn’t the first time this has been suggested to me by other upland hunters, but until now I just made do with the shotguns I own. Before I knew it, arrangements had been made for me to pick up a loaner Benelli USA Ethos 12 gauge with a 28-inch barrel. I was excited and nervous at the same time; I was borrowing a fine Italian Benelli and have never hunted with an inertia driven shotgun.
The day I arrived at my local gun store to pick up the shotgun was very entertaining. The guys were waiting for me to complete the submission of my 4473, so “we” could open the box and inspect it. I was receiving “The Benelli Experience,“ which, in shop talk, translates to this edict: You WILL remove the hard case from the cardboard box and open it so that they, too, can hold and admire it.
