I've been looking for a reliable 12gauge semi-auto for duck shooting. I'm thinking about getting a Stoeger m3000 but wanted to see if anyone has any experience with them or any better ideas.

They are basically a Benelli Inertia action , they are well made and reliable .

you get what you pay for.. prob be fine as a hunting gun. May be fussy on light target rounds. in saying that like any gun you may get one that works flawlessly.

Second hand Beretta A390 is another good one.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

That's true, even my Vinci doesn't like light loads. Usually just use higher recoil ammo and no issues.

If you can , try before you buy , Vinci's are great shotguns , but they  kick my trigger finger and really hurt it , I'll stick with my M3
