From what I know of Benelli they are great guns. I have never heard of one jamming. however the only way I would go with an auto SG is if the tube was long enough to hold as many rounds as my Mossberg 500. The only thing I don't like about Benelli is the price. A SG makes a great short range defensive weapon for defending a home as most of the time buckshot won't go thru your target and hit someone or something behind it, like your neighbor's house. Plus the amount of versatility in loads makes it perfect for defense as well as hunting. I would recommend going to a range with your Mossberg that had a shotgun or defensive section with pop up targets. If after about 150 rounds you haven't forgotten to pump after you fired, I wouldn't spend the money on the Benelli. 1400 bucks can get you plenty of ammo or other supplies.
