Get a Remington Express 870 in 12 ga. You will not go wrong. With light loads it is a dream to shoot. You can hunt with it and is very versatile gun.

On a other note my wife wanted a cheap shotgun to shoot clay's and hunt with. After looking for cheep shotguns she went and bought a new Benelli for $1,500. Ouch!!!

Wow! $1,500??? She must have had second thoughts, or liked what she saw.

She couldn't find one to fit her right. The youth guns were to small and didn't come in 12 ga. She could not work a pump and O/U was too heavy. She learned that get one you like and fits you best.

I bought a Benelli M2 for the reason it came in a left hand model. I hate shells flying across my face. I still love the old stand by 870 for turkeys and other dangerous critters like squirrels.
