Binelli Nova shotgun: Opinions?

Since parting with the Remington 870 I had owned for almost twenty years, I've been looking for a replacement. I like the Mossberg 590, and while looking for one in a local gun store, stumbled across a Benelli Nova that was priced competitively.
Anyone have any experiences with these? I'm leaning towards going with the Mossberg, but am tempted to take a second look at the Benelli.

Oh, and for clarification, this is the tactical model.

......and yes, I realize I misspelled BENELLI in the thread title! :)

Great reliable workhorse of a shotgun. The lack of modularity is the only reason I sold mine. But like with most guns I have ever parted with, I wish I still had it.

great shotgun for sure, but replacement parts are hard to come by and barrel is just expensive as whole shotgun.

I'd personally go with supernova.

It's still a tossup. I know I will be happy with the Mossberg, but I think I'll go check out the Benelli again. If I am happy with the stock, sights, balance, weight, and action, I think I might opt for that.

.....and I'll let you know what I decide.

Thanks, everyone, for the input. It is appreciated!

Today, I went back to the gun store, and checked out the Benelli again. I liked it and decided to get it. Unfortunately, because of this weekend's gun show, OSP's back ground check line was backlogged. I put $50 down to hold it and will return in a couple of days to get it.

I ran into the same problem today. I bought a Marlin 336 .35 rem. My background took almost 40 mins. I had nothing better to do so I waited.

What shop did you get it from?

It's a relatively new gun store, next to Taco Del Mar, in the strip mall that houses Blumenthal's, on SW Barbur Blvd. I can't remember the name!
