ACCOKEEK, Md. – The Virginia State Police recently adopted the Benelli SuperNova and will deploy the pump-action platform as the Department’s new standard-issue patrol shotgun.
Training on the new Benelli SuperNova shotguns has been underway since early 2018 as the firearms are being phased into the department beginning in the fall of 2019. The Benelli SuperNova Shotgun is a lightweight, rock-solid pump-action shotgun available in a bevy of configurations.
“The SuperNova offers configurations that meet the needs of departments plus a proven track record of reliability making it a popular choice with departments of all sizes nationwide,” said Benelli USA Law Enforcement Sales Manager Jeff Sterner. “To be deployed throughout the entire department of this size speaks volumes about the shotgun and we are proud to help play a role in the future success of the Virginia State Police.”
Benelli revolutionized the shotgun world in 1967 with the development of the industry’s first Inertia Driven system that made semi-automatic shotguns capable of handling even the harshest environments. Today, Benelli continues to innovate in a way that reverberates throughout the world by producing firearms that are deployed with militaries and law enforcement agencies around the global.
