Default What should I get as a Turkey shotgun?

I decided to not go for the "fun gun" or "plinker centerfire" I was thinking of before, but I found that it would be a wise investment to get a turkey/waterfowl shotgun.

I was thinking of an auto-loader, if possible, but a pump would be okay, as long as it's designed for turkey.

Auto-loaders:

Mossberg 935

Remington 11-87

Any other suggestions?

Pump:

Remington 870

Mossberg 835

Bennelli Nova Pump

Any other suggestions?

My price range will be at the highest be $450, and I will be getting it next year, EARLIEST, since I will need to spend my money on deer season supplies this fall.

Thanks in advance,

Josiah

In a pump,my 1st choice would be browning bps. A semiauto would kick less however,while requiring a bit more maintence in long run. Between the 2 you listed,11-87 would be my choice. You might check out the charles daly line.

Your not going to find many auto loaders for $450, unless you get a used one. I have a Benelli Super Nova 12 ga. in advantage camo, and it is a great gun. It is right around the $450 range.

You could buy a new Browning Pump shotgun off the ding and dent rack at Grice Gunshop for as little as $350 /for a 12 ga 3 1/2 Magnum with shadow grass camo.

I do not believe that a shotguns camo pattern has to match the area where you are hunting.

Most animals look for shapes and outlines more than than they actually look to see if something is out of place.

A man standing up makes more sense to them than a man squatting down - doing his buisness, that is why so many deer gets shot that way.
Because the deer didn't see what he or she was looking for.

I use a 835 for Turkey, but you should look into the 870, just a great shotgun!!!!

Semi-Autos your very limited for what you can get in your price range, look into the Stoeger model 2000
