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.
