I like the 500 best for trap shooting, the action is smoother than on my 870, shot pattern is more consistant (with hot reloads) and i like not having to take my finger off the trigger, to unlock the safety,in a home defense situation with my shortened up version, but the furniture on the 870 is prettier....

plus it seems like when you shuck the next one in, the spent casings dont fly as far with the mossy, might not be a big deal to most people, but seems like i always get elected to pick up the empties LOL....

Plus on the mossy, the chrome thingy on the bottom stays in the up position for loading, makes it quicker and easier to load (and dosnt mess up your nail polish)

of the 3, i have only shot the 500. it had a touch of weight to it but not so much that you'd be tired from holding it for too long. the one i shot was my uncle's waterfowl gun. it was 12 gauge and with that recoil pad his had, it kicked less than my 20 gauge break action. what do you intend to do? plink, hunt, skeet, what?

Mossberg® 500 20 Gauge w/26" Barrel Shotgun | Bass Pro Shops look good?

that is a tad overpriced. check the local gun shops for their prices and policy on receiving orders from online stores is. this one place is pretty much the best place for guns online Cheaper Than Dirt - America's Ultimate Shooting Sports Discounter and here is their listings of the 500 in 20. synthetic 46980 - Mossberg 500 Field Pump Action All Purpose Field Shotgun 20 Gauge 26" Barrel 6 Rounds Twin Bead Sights Synthetic Stock Matte Black Finish and wood 2-MS50136 - Mossberg 500 Pump Action All Purpose Field Shotgun 20 Gauge 26" Barrel 5 Rounds Twin Bead Sights Wood Stock Blued Finish
if you are on the smaller side, this might be a better fit 46897 - Mossberg 500 Bantam Pump Shotgun 20 Gauge 3" Chamber Wood Stock Blued Finish

your best bet is to find a dedicated gun shop if you havent all ready and shoulder what they have on the rack to see what fits you.

None of the above are clay target guns. Especially since all are slider guns. If you are serious about shooting trap, skeet and sporting clays, you will look elsewhere. Check the sales boards for a decent, preowned O/U or autoloader with at least 28" barrels. The three guns you mention are just average field grade guns and not suited for the clay sports...

All three are good choices as a multi purpose shotgun. My nod goes to the 870.
