I'm hoping John will help out here, but I'll start.

The Super Vinci now takes 3.5" shells. My take: it swings well, has a big safety, and a good trigger.

Coach guns.

And tactical coach guns. Say what you want, this feels awesome.

I'm afraid I know nothing about these. I'm assuming they're competition .22 rimfires, but I wouldn't be shocked to find that they were pellet guns of some sort, either.

They know how to make pretty:

It was interesting that the reps at the big manufacturers all wore suits. It's a marketing event, but there was a big difference in dress codes depending on (I'm assuming) corporate culture. Oh yeah, and shotguns.

I've been wanting a coach gun for a while, Hopefully Benelli's offerings are as good as or better than the current standard of Stoeger/Baikail.

Well, these are Stoeger's. I found the triggers on the double-barrels a little hard and crunchy, but not too bad.

There are indeed differences in corporate culture, but I think it's less about the size of the manufacturer. The Remington, Taurus and Browning reps I saw weren't in suits.

Heh, I should've know that price was too good to be true on a Benelli.

The tag next to the pistols says 22lr so I don't think there lying?
