Took it about 300 rounds to break in. Anyway, put it back together and it slides so god damn smooth. Effortless slide action. You can hold it by the slide and easily rack it by wrist flipping. Love this ****er.
I rode a Benelli once. Transmission was terrible. Pulled like a truck though.

Hmm, was not aware of that. The Tornado I rode was ... quirky. Definitely an interesting ride. Just looked them up, had no idea there was so much history behind. That is sad indeed.

Which Tornado, original or big sister? Benelli has a rich history, and it is a shame indeed. The buyout happened a few years ago IIRC so the Chinese buyer could expand their scooter line. Benelli was struggling so the supposed influx of money was potentially exciting, but I haven't seen much happen with their bikes since then so

Already ordered some, but will probably need more...Ordering for Andrew and a few of my buddies as well. Have to order online, ammo is wayy up, thanks to nobama. Still need to know what you want to shoot though.

.22 ammo free all day long...

It was the 1130. I forget the details - it was 5-6 years ago. Looked like this though - same paint scheme and everything:

Tornado Tre started as a 900... Both triples... So promising, cool radiator set up, edgy styling, but sadly never did well...
