I shoot the SP-10 now, I used to shoot the BPS10, the reason I went to the SP-10 was because of "recoil headaches" from the hard kicking shotguns I used to shoot. The gun I shoot now is the 26" barreled SP-10 that has been Pro-Ported by Magna-Port and has had the forcing cone lengthened. The gun feels like a 3" 12 ga. 1100 rem. when you fire it, the trade-off is the noise to the people around you. It may be too loud. I had one guy tell me that it looks like a top fuel dragster when the flames hit the ports. Either way, I can shoot all I want and recoil is not a factor. The BPS10 is a terrific shotgun also, I have not shot the Gold10. The SP-10 is very similar in fit to my 11-87 as someone else in this post said.
