So sharp and clean (Destiny)

All jokes aside, so much this. There are a couple of reasons you might select manual action for a shotgun these days (price, simplicity, non-lethal ammo) but this really shouldn't be an issue 500 years into the future. Benelli specifically has a great gas-operated semi-auto (ARGO system on the M4) and as that original poster said, it's already in service today. Benelli's ID semi-autos are rock-solid, too (I've shot the SBEII a few times, over 1000 rounds I'd guess, with zero failures) but if you ever needed to fire it in a non-standard shooting position, the action may not cycle reliably (it's recoil-dependent).
