Beretta A400 Lite - Synthetic - 12 gauge :
The Beretta A400 Lite Shotgun with Kickoff & GP - 12 GA is a hunting shotgun that does it all--and that does not mind playing hard and getting dirty.

After a demanding day upland hunting in the tall grass, waterfowling in the marshes or breaking clays at the range, the A400 is just as happy being tossed in the back of the truck for the drive home. It is not simply a black synthetic version of the A400 family, as it incorporates a boatload of special features like cross-tube piston giving you a 4+1 shot capacity, a new checkering pattern for better gripping, advanced recoil reduction, light weight, Optima HP choke system and the revolutionary smartphone-compliant Gunpod 2 to keep track of (and share!) your shooting activities. It is a workhorse--but a workhorse with an impressive pedigree.

With its Blink gas-operating system, the A400 is the fastest semiauto action on the market, capable of delivering 4 shots in less than one second. Just as importantly, its 3 inch chamber will reliably feed and fire different-purpose shells (2.5 inch or 3 inch) from heavy-hitting rounds to light target loads. And as an all-purpose shotgun, it combines low weight (6.6 lbs) with low recoil, so that it can be easily carried around on the most strenuous adventures without ever being punishing on the shoulder. This is because it sports two advanced recoil-reducing devices--the Kick-Off system within the buttstock (which absorbs up to 50% of recoil) as well as a super-soft, no-snag Micro Core recoil pad.

In the hands, the A400 Lite Synthetic feels like an extension of your body. Beretta has researched and created a new S Grip checkering pattern that gives you a wonderfully-positive hold (even with gloves) while being much easier to wipe clean than conventional checkering. An adjustable shim system also enables you to customize the fit for drop and cast, while a highly-visible fiberoptic sight at the end of the guns ventilated rib helps you keep your eyes on the target. The A400 action is self-cleaning, so it requires much less maintenance than any other shotgun you will ever own; but when you take this gun apart you will be amazed by the intuitive simplicity of the tool-free field-stripping process and by what little maintenance the A400 Lite Synthetic requires.

The A400 Lite Synthetic comes with a built-in GunPod2 unit, a Bluetooth-compliant electronic unit that transmits all the information you want about your hunt to a smartphone app (included). This cool device lets you create a map of your hunt, drop a pin where you took your best shots, help you remember where the game was and immortalize each shot with a photo, video, or note. You can also instantly share any part of this on Facebook and other social-media venues, so that your buddies who stayed home can see what they missed. In all, the A400 Lite Synthetic is a modern, dynamic, sporty do-it-all that is eager to share your adventures and help you brag about them.

12 Gauge Shotgun

The 12 gauge is by far the most versatile and handles a huge range of loads. This is the standard and the most versatile gauge of all. The 12 gauge shoots everything from nearly recoilless 3/4-ounce practice loads to 2 1/4-ounce turkey stompers. Ammunition is available everywhere, and the volume of 12 gauge sales keeps prices low. If you own only one gun, it should be a 12 gauge.


Example load types

  • Bird Shot : Birdshot is the smallest type of shotgun pellets. It is typically used by hunters who want to shoot birds or other flying wildlife. Inside a birdshot shell are small steel or lead spheres that scatter outward once it is fired from the shotgun. The more metal spheres, or pellets, that get packed into a shell the more the pellets will scatter around the target area. The reason why this type of ammunition works best for shooting birds is because it is easier to hit them with it.


  • Buckshot : Buckshot is shotgun ammunition that uses large metal pellets in the shotgun shells. When the buckshot is fired from the shotgun the pellets scatter outward just like the birdshot. The only difference is the buckshot does more damage than the birdshot because it uses larger pellets. The bigger the pellets, the more impact it will have on the target.


  • Slug : A slug is actually a word that describes a shotgun bullet. Most people use the term shot when describing the ammunition of a shotgun, but slugs are also another type of shotgun ammunition. The difference between birdshot and slugs is the slugs have a one solid lead or steel projectile that gets shot out. This makes them the most powerful and damaging ammunition you can use with your shotgun. There are actually many slug variations on the market
