I have been shooting the Security Six quite a bit, and really, really, like it.
I came across another deal at Gander a few weeks ago, and sold a shotgun that I never use to get it.
They had, in the used gun section, a Beretta 8040 Cougar, that looked like it had never been fired.
I don't think that it was ever taken out of the box.
I got it for $345.00.
Not all of the guys at the range like it.
Being of short barrel, a guy has to be a good shot, but for me, it shoots just great.
What I really like about the .40, is that along with being very accurate for a protection gun, it will shoot as fast as I can pull the trigger, with no failure to feeds.
I think that it's rotating barrel helps a lot.
The gun does have quite a bark though.
If you missed your target in a real fight, he would be deaf anyway.
