I suggest the Remington 870, great shotgun for the money.
870 best bang for the buck.
Remington's 1100 is a great classic semiauto.

I'm guessing you guys have never fired a Benelli... If you had, you would throw the remington in the trash.

Well, when you get tired of mediocrity... A Benelli will be waiting.

suprdave, you assume too much.
A good friend of mine has a Benelli 12ga. shotgun that I have fired many times when him & I are at; the range shooting clays, competition shoots, turkey hunting, etc. Very nice shotgun indeed, but Benellis come with that great big price tag also. My point is for the money Remington offers the best bang for the buck.

Although my friend's Benelli is a great shotgun, I won't be throwing my 870 in the trash. The 870 set the standard for pump action shotguns, as the 1100 set the standard for semi-autos. My Remingtons can do anything his Benellis can do.

So you're saying that Remington's have unimpressive quality?
Then why is the 870 the most sold shotgun...ever?

Can a Remington kill a duck? Sure. Does it cost less? Definitely. That's why it's so popular. Don't get all bent out of shape because you're a Remington Fan-Boy. Benelli wins more competitions and is chosen by more serious hunters than any other brand. Sorry.

im looking at the models on benellis website now and these prices are insane. starting at $1,379 $1,549 $1,229 $1,869, so tell me why I would pay $1,379 for a gun when I can get a Remington that can do the exact same thing as any benelli can do, for a mere $309.

ah, you need to calm down, I'm not the one gettin' bent out of shape here, pal...price isn't the only reason.
If Remington was trash they would have fallen to the way side many years ago. I agree, Benelli has two of the best hired shooters money can buy to promote their product. If it wasn't for World Record Holder Tom Knapp & Tim Bradley the story would be different. Also lets compare apples to apples & oranges to oranges.
