Q:
Any thoughts/opinions on a Mossberg 535 ATS 12 gauge? I am thinking about buying one for my first gun and using it for deer/turkey hunting. Will this be suitable for both?

870's espeically older Wingmasters are the best pumps around except POSSIBLY Browning and Ithicas.

I have a 535 and love it. Definitely has the versatility you're looking for. With the right choke/load combination you could use it for nearly anything. 870's are good too, my Dad has one and has never had a problem with it, but the Mossberg is just as good. Don't be talked out of it.

The 535 is a 500 with a 3.5" chamber. I would just get a 500 with a 3" chamber or an 835 with the back-bored barrel, it's a little heavier. A light 500 with a 3.5 inch magnum in it kicks like the dickens, not to mention 3.5s are unnecessary.
