All purpose 12 gauge help
 
I'm looking for an all purpose 12 gauge either a semi auto or pump. 3 1/2 inch chamber. Any help or information would be appreciated

the mossberg 535 (which is a pump) will shoot 3 1/2" shells. they run for about $270 at my local walmart

it all depends on what you're shootin, you may not need 3 1/2" shells

Basically all purpose. Hunting ducks geese turkey squirrels hogs deer basically anything. Shooting clays and other targets.

I turkey and deer hunt with a Mossberg 835 (pump), I can't say it's "THE GREATEST" shotgun out there, but it works for me. I have three diff. barrels, for it; a blued 28" w/ choke tubes, a 24" camo/ported turkey barrel w/ tubes and a 24", rifled & Parkerized cantilever scope mount barrel w/ 3X9 Bushnell scope mounted on it. All in, I'd say I've got about $650 -$700 tied up in that system.

I've got no complaints with it at all.

From experience as far as pumps go with the nova...the 887s are crap.....I don't have much experience with the semi autos...my buddy does have a versa max and likes it but it's hard to go wrong with a semi auto benelli

Get Mossberg 500. My dad got one in 1987 and he still uses it and it has been trough A LOT! He has used it from shootin duck to paddle a boat to din a hole, and it still shoots on point. He just bought a new one a week ago strictly for turkey huntin but he loves it.

Yea the 887 are pure junk. The first time I went to shoot at some duck with it it jammed when I was cycling to the 2nd shot and it was brand new! So don't waste your money on one.
