1ST PRIZE – Benelli SBE-II Optifade-5 12 Ga. Shotgun
What distinguishes Benelli from the competition is the ultra-reliability and quality built into every gun based on superior technology and craftsmanship. Benelli’s Inertia Driven® operating system incorporates total efficiency with complete reliability—best summed up as “Simply Perfect.” The Inertia Driven® system, combined with features like ComforTech®, AirTouch®, SteadyGrip™, GripTight®, and Crio® System, offers shooters and hunters an edge that allows them to hunt longer, harder, and more successfully.
2ND PRIZE – Winchester SX3 12 Ga. Shotgun
Some shooters of Super X3 shotguns are like members of a strange secret society. We don’t say too much or brag too much. We just go about our business taking more ducks and geese, more pheasants and grouse and more turkeys and deer in the toughest, widest ranging temperatures and weather conditions around. At times and places and conditions where the competition will fail.
3RD PRIZE – SITKA Layout Jacket & Pants
More Than a Pattern – Our approach to performance hunting apparel is systematic. Constructing the most functional designs from the most technical performance fabrics and insulations, then combining them in various strategic combinations, SITKA® Gear systems withstand the exertion level, temperature, wind and precipitation of any hunting scenario.
4TH PRIZE – Franchi Affinity Catalyst
On the heels of its wildly popular predecessor, the Franchi Affinity, our 12-ga Affinity Catalyst gives shooters the same sleek, perfectly balanced feel, with one notable upgrade: The stock is optimized to feel right in a woman’s hands. Compared to a stock designed for men, the Affinity Catalyst’s drop, cast, pitch and length-of-pull are all tailored to a woman’s build. The light weight, fit, feel and resposiveness are noticeable. This allows for an outstanding level of control and outright pleasure in what stands to become the industry’s most affordable, Inertia Driven, semiautomatic shotgun made specifically for women.
