I'd recommend a semi-auto Remington, such as the 1100, in either 12 or 20 gauge, with interchangeable choke tubes. If you need to save some money, a pump Mossberg with Improved Cylinder would be nice.

muzzleloading shotguns forever!!! i now have 4 double barrel muzzleloading shotguns and i couldnt say enough about them. they are pretty much a custom loaded shotgun. yes, regular shotguns may be easier to use,but you wont find the graditude that you will from a muzzleloader. they are just simply a blast. and loaded right they will throw just as good a pattern as a regular shotgun. if i do happen to be using my modern shotguns it would be the smith & wesson pump 12 guage and the old iver johnson double barrel 12 gauge.

Hi,

Another maniac! There is something that can't be matched in being afield with my Pedersoli 12ga. SxS, a brace of fine Springers, and a nice cool fall day. I've taken everything from grouse and pheasants to ducks and geese with it. Every bird I've taken with it tastes better.

If I have to shoot one of those new-fangled breechloaders, I use a Weatherby Orion in 20ga. If I can get out my Daughters hands.....

SKB 585 o/u 20ga. (couldn't find a 700) is my everything upland gun - same factory as Weatherby Orion. Used a 870 express 12ga for waterfowl which I don't hunt anymore. Love to shoot an Ithica 37 featherlight again as that was my first bird gun.

I love my 1100 for hunting some of the thicker stuff for grouse as they do a lot of zig zagging going threw the thick stuff. I also like my single shot 410 for more open areas and for wood****.. As wood**** fly pretty straight once they hit the top of the alder bushes.. So it all depends on what you are hunting and what kind of areas you are hunting in..
