Most "bang" for your buck is a Remington 870 in 12. There are "better" guns, and there are "cheaper" guns than the 870, but there aren't "better cheaper" guns than the 870.
The 870 Rem in 20ga at Wal*Mart $287.99
my browning maxus is a delight but only 12g and priced around 1300, but I thought I'd throw it in, in case u have a good bank account, I always think its worth the extra $ for a gun as u will have it for life, and I really love this shotgun!!
The Remington 870 is a great value for the price. I have discarded much more expensive shotguns to hunt with this one. They are very reliable and well balanced. Several models from cheap to Wingmaster. They are all good. Take your pick.
I would go with Remington. Get an 870 for an affordable all around gun, a 1100 for skeet/trap/sporting clays, or a 11-87 or Versamax for semi auto hunting gun.
What will be the primary use for this new acquisition?
like others said, a 870.
Just picked up my 870 combo barrel set in 12 gauge on saturday for my Christmas present so my vote goes (obviously) to the the Remington 870 in 12 or 20 gauge.
bought my mossberg 500 2 years ago and i love it. cant beat the price for what you get. the combo comes with a rifled barrel and a bird barrel, 2 or 3 choke tubes and chin rests. both of my hunting buddies own them and love them. we have never had a problem with them and there definately a good gun for a good price
