I guess it depends on what you need out of a shotgun. I’ve been using the same Mossberg 500 for almost 30 years, its never let me down and its still in pretty much the same shape as when i bought it.
Got me a 12ga and a 500c 20ga pistol grip style. Love 'em both.
takes the worry out of pumping!!!!!!! The little lady can handle with easy and just the sound it makes when dropping the bolt is enough to stop most people.
A pheasant hunting pal liked to take his single shot .410 to the field. A single shell in the shotgun. Two more in his shirt pocket.
He nearly always came home with the limit of three birds...
My son inherited a Remington model 31 from his granddad.
I have the next generation in the 870. We use for doves and both work great but the 870 is way easier to take down.
It isn’t listed here but I’ve carried my Remington 1100 to the field for more than 50 years. Before that I shot a Stevens bolt action .410. Dad would never let me carry more than 1 round in that gun. You had to be dead on with it so you learned to shoot better. When I got the 1100 I had to learn to wait or all I got on a covey rise was guts and feathers. Quail were never as plentiful as one would have liked but they were not uncommon. Now we hardly ever see them so we end up just shooting clays.
I also own a 20 gage field grade L.C. Smith double.
Very classy and comfortable to shoot.
I own three of the shotguns listed. Model 12 Winchester, A-5 Browning and a Mossberg 500. Time to hunt I reach for the 500.
See how one is always fair to everyone about everything, all the time? One suggests that you keep working with L. Case.
(PSSST. Hey buddy... c'mere where we can talk quiet, lemme give you a hint. Get this... If you post it all here, without a pimp link, more people will like you and they'll go click on your blog just because they think you're a cool guy. See?
Really one shouldn't have to explain this but hey, you've shown that you can learn.
Don't tell nobody I told you this.)
My wife looks her best cradling any shotgun from the Mossberg 590 Shockwave family.
I have a warm spot in my heart for SxS
Yeah, he’s come a little ways since posting graphic images of gunshot wounds under the category ‘humor’. So maybe he’s in 9th grade now.
I have a Mossberg 500 16 gauge (!!!) that I got in a pawn shop for 70 bucks.
11-87 remington 20 gauge...best shotgun for a old man
