If you're looking into the collection of premium and luxury firearms online do check out Beretta Gallery USA. You can make your purchase online and get it delivered to your nearest FFL dealer.

I picked up a SBE3 this season and once I figured out the shims its been good. Not a single hiccup and I have shot hundreds of rounds in single digit temps.

I bought the wife a Beretta A300 Ultima and it has been good as well but I haven't had it out on the cold days since she is a sleep in kind of gal when the weather turns lol.

I was using a Stoeger M3500 and the only problem I had was when it got real cold the spring wasn't strong enough to strike the primer.

I replaced the firing pin and hammer spring and it hasn't missed a beat.

Best thing I can say is get what makes you happy. Go handle a few different ones and get the one that is most comfortable to handle.

I prefer the inertia just for the ease of cleaning and reliability.

I really, however, felt more comfortable with an old A5 and if it wasn't for the cheap feel to me of the wicked wings version I would have ended up with that.

Really like that hump back for lining the target up.

The Benelli Black Eagle (and super black eagle) are getting to be a staple for serious waterfowlers. However if you want to save a few $$ for basically the same gun you can get a Franchi Intensity. Franchi is owned by Benelli and the gas system is the same on each. And if you don't want to spend too much money there ain't nothing wrong with a 3 1/2 Rem 870.
I'm going to send you a PM.

I have been using a Win Model 1300 pump for decades.
They don't make them anymore but you can get a used one for a couple hundred bucks.

They aren't fancy and they aren't pretty but they go bang when you want them too even if they are wet and muddy and they come with various choke tubes.
Mine is scratched, has missing bluing and light surface rust due to fresh and saltwater exposure but when I toss out the decoys this is what will be in the blind.
