I've always had pump shotguns but due to age need to see about going to a semi-auto. I've heard and read that the inertia semi-autos fit the bill as far as easiest to maintain and clean. Who makes inertia semi-autos?

Hey Lonewolf,
Benelli, Franchi, and Stoeger make inertia guns. Here’s a good article on the subject:

I have not owned an inertia gun, but own an 11/87 and Beretta 1301, as I think you know. I have cleaned my share of 10/22’s though, and they are simple blow back guns. That’s likely different from an inertia gun. Anyway, the gas guns do make a mess along the magazine tube and in the gas operating system itself. My two both sure seem to take a long time to have any negative effects from being dirty, however. That said, they are more troublesome to clean than a pump. You may want to view a YouTube video on cleaning the new Versamax from Remington, just to get an idea on what the latest technology entails regarding cleaning.

They do little to reduce recoil. A gas (1100, 11-87, Versamax) or long recoil operated shotgun (A-5) will soak up a lot of the recoil and spread it out over more time (though still measured in milliseconds) than an intertia gun. (The rings on an A-5 must be positioned right to accomplish this.)
