    Hey all,
    I finally got my first defense shotgun yesterday... I bought a pre ban Beretta 1200FP.
    Some specs :
    recoil/inertia system ( supposed to be super fast )
    20" barrel
    6+1 or 5+1 capacity ( depending on ammo... 2 3/4" or 3" )
    Only 6 3/4 lbs
    Chrome lined bolt and bore
    windage and elevation adjustable rear black leaf sight with beaded blade front sight ( seriously ? )

    Anyway, I paid a pretty penny for this gun... hopefully it is a good one. I've never heard of this model... but it is in new condition, and I had to have it.
    Anyone have or ever had this model ? any feedback would be appreciated.

    Pic not mine... but same gun

    That looks like the berretta shotty our town cop carries in his blazer. I'll ask him to see if it is, and get some info for ya.

    They were pretty common out here pre 96. I like the way they shoulder and handle. The couple I used seemed a little hard on the shoulder to me. I had a short Rem 1100 which was softer shooting but not as rugged. You will be happy I suspect.
