Benelli Nova vs Supernova

I'm looking to buy a new shotgun for the upcoming turkey season. Yeah I know its only 10 days away but its an impulse buy. I'm pretty sure i want a Benelli Nova or Supernova. Is it really worth the extra money for the Supernova? I'm mainly going to use it for turkey and occasionally in the field for grouse and pheasant. What is the best most versatile barrel length to get? If you know anybody selling one, please PM me.

my supernova will drop a turkey at 40yds w a 3" shell no problem. good quality gun. Ill always say its worth the price.

Those who say money cant buy happiness, have never paid an adoption fee.

If you are shooting the 3.5" lead then yes it is if not then the Nova will be fine. The only differance is in the butt stock wich will eat some of the recoil of the over rated 3.5" shells. I have killed turkey at 60+ with 3" out of my regular Nova with a Dead Cyote choke. No need for the bigger shells unless you are waterfowl hunting then they are worth it for geese.
