1, Mossberg 930, good shot gun behind a reliable name (Not too sure on this one yet)
2, Benelli SuperNova, excelent pointability, good weight, Durable shot gun (Really want one!)
3, Remington 870, the most popular, most widely used pump shotgun of all time. (I own one already)

Very rugged, reliable, and tough. Mine never has a feeding problem, action is smooth and true. The only con is the matte finish is prone to corrosion. Proper care will alleviate any problems.

Get the 870.

I have an 870 and it has still never jammed. You will hear the same old story about how, "I dropped my 870 in the mud/water/snow/sand/whatever, picked it up and shot it" from everyone that owns one. Although you hear it a lot, it's actually true. I once read an article on the 870 titled, "It always goes Bang!" That is the truth; and if the 870 is ever retired, that statement will be written on its tombstone. You absolutely cannot buy a more reliable gun for the price.

i have 3 870's. one is a hand me down from my grandfather to my father to me. it is a workhorse but not a gun i take duck hunting since my duck hunting guns are abused to say the least. i have an 870 that i have duck hunted with for several years that has seen use as everything from a gun to a boat or to a crutch and a 20 guage for upland that was also a hand me down through family. never a mishap with a single one of them.

i have shot the mossberg 835 for about 13 years now and love it. its the pump version of the 935. It shoots everything but federial 3.5 inchers, other then that you pull the trigger it goes boom no questions asked. i have used it for everything from a paddle to breaking ice and have never had it freeze or fowl. the camo finish is awsome and mine only has rust in the places i let it have it. i did not clean it for over 6 years and just shot it put it in the corner barrel down so it would dry and then shot it again. I will be buying a 935 in the very near future. only draw back is that you cant shoot 2 3/4 inch shells out of it but i have heard that if you break them in with heavy 3 inch or 3.5 inch shells they willcycle them,personally i dont care i only shoot 3 inchers any way.

I wouldn't give you a wood nickle for a brand new 870. In the last several years, Remington's shotguns have taken a major nosedive. Used to be that an 870 was like an anvil. You couldn't hardly break one if you tried.... now a days, it seems that we are sending quite a few of them back to Remington for warranty work within their first three months with a new owner (to the tune of maybe 4 or 5 a month). 1187s have been a much more haneous offender, especially the super mags.

Don't get me wrong, they are still pretty good guns, all I am saying here is they don't make them like they used to. I've got an 870 Wingmaster Mag that is a couple years older than I am, it was my first 12 gauge, purchased with a lot of lawn mowing money when I was 11 and it's never hiccupped once in the nearly 20 years I have owned it.

I still have yet to put my hands on a 930, even though I've been working in the hunting industry for the last five years. The 935s are a great choice, and the 835s an even better one if you like a slide action.

The Benelli's I have mixed feelings about. But thats subjective. They are awesome guns, very well put together, and super simple to maintain. I just personally think they new owns feel like swinging a 2x6. The little 20 gauge Novas are sweet little guns.
