Default Best bang for my buck

I am looking at getting my boyfriend a shotgun for his birthday. He is starting to hunt more now and would like to have the option of his bow or a gun. I am more into pistols/handguns and have not touched a shot gun since I was a little girl (soo...no clue what to look for). I am looking for something under 300 bucks preferably, but that is a little flexible. I would like at least two or three options that I can personally look into and look at a few gun stores around me. Thanks!

Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. Check with the store and make sure he can return it if you get the wrong "something". Your heart is in the right place, but I would really advise a gift certificate. If he is a gun guy, he probably knows EXACTLY what he wants. Tell him I said he's a lucky guy.

This guy talks about every gun in the book and usually likes the ones that are far from my budget. ha He just needs a gun right now that has a good history on it, a decent price, and a hunters gun? Like I said all I would like it options that I can look into if this is the route I want to go for a present. I am stuck between buying a gun or giving him money to fix his jeep up.

A Remington 870 is a great shotgun. I don't know any gun lovers that would turn one down.

New or used?

New: I'd say the Mossberg 500 field. It's a good reliable shotgun. It's probably the best bang for your buck out there.

Used: I'd say an 870 Wingmaster from about 5-10 years back. They're better quality than those of today.

The Mossberg 500 Combo will give the most bang for the buck.

Not a big fan of mossberg safety but I grew up shooting Remington so ask him what he likes best if he has experience with one or the other but your choices are limited with the budget u have set to spend
