I remember when the answer to this question was usually the Remington 1100. I miss the old days. :coolgleamA:
:iagree: and that is still the best answer IMHO.
Absolutely, if you are right handed, well budgeted and it fits you! :lol:

Re: Shotgun suggestions

Back in 1989 I bought a Mossberg 500A kit with both bbls and a pistol grip & full stock for $219 at Service Merchandise :lol:

As a lefty, I went with the Mossberg (because of the safety location) Over the next 15 or so years of shooting skeet, trap & clays when I wasn't dove, quail, pheasant, turkey or deer hunting,(and hundreds of CASES of shells later) I was the only one of our group that had never experienced a failure of any kind... Which was great because they all razzed me constantly for having the "cheap" gun.


Other than a less expensive gun that works great, here is why I'm a fan of Mossberg:

I later I noticed a hairline crack in the firing pin housing... I called up to buy a new part and was told that was only a factory replacement part... They sent me a fedex label (even though it was many years out of warranty) and I reluctantly I sent them the gun and enclosed a note telling them about the story above. (just hoping to get the part for free) The following week a brand new gun showed up with my serial number on it. There was also a note enclosed... Dear flechero, Thank you for your patronage and loyalty as a Mossberg customer. With the obvious usage and 10's of thousands of rounds your gun had seen, and the fact that it had been well cared for, we felt it more appropriate to replace the gun than just replace a part. If you ever need to replace this one, we hope you will once again choose a Mossberg.

:woohoo :thumbs2:


There are lots of good shotguns out there. I think everyone should start with a pump, and later change if another gun, better suits your needs. Then the pump can be relegated to other duty or a back up.
