I have several shotguns from remington, mossberg, and h&R. but my favorite is my 870 tactical 20 gauge, it's one fantastic shooter.

If you like the Nova, you should really try a Benelli auto.

My favorite is the Sport II.

Just goes BANG every time.

I own several shotguns and I enjoy them all, but if I must pick a favorite. My Mossberg 185d. The barrel is externally threaded for it's three different chokes, so no choke= no problem. Three shot capacity with a 2 shot box mag, bolt action with a rear peep sight. It goes bang every time I pull the trigger, and depending on where the rear sight is set, it hits what I aim it at every time. Deer, bird, or rabbit, it drops 'em. Can't ask much more out of a 20 ga. made in the late 1940s.
Guns don't kill people. Blood loss and organ failure do.

I have two shotguns that I really love; my Remington 1100 field special in 12ga... best semi-auto, gas operated gun I have ever held!! I shoot that about 75% of the time... AND an Ithica model 37 12ga pump I inherited from Daddy. The Ithica is based on a Browning design that ejects from the bottom... so any lefties, like my baby brother (who is a Southpaw) can have a gun to shoot with me.

Now if you ask my Father-In-Law... Browning Citori all day long!!!

My Valmet 16 ga. O/U. Choked I.C. and full, it is the perfect hunting gun. It has no vent rib and no barrel separation rib. As a result, it is very light at an ounce over 6 pounds. It carries and handles like a dream. Not very good for Clays, skeet or trap as it is too light. But, it still remains my favorite.

That is a tough question!!!
The reason I like several of my shotguns is based on what I use them for. For example, I have a Mossberg Model 930 Turkey Gun Camo with a Model 512 EOTech on it that is great. But I would have to say if I had to pick one shotgun for all around function and use I would have to say my Remington 870 Mag, Parkerized with extended magazine tube and rifle sights! And by the way the Benelli's are fine shotguns! I have shot one before, just don't have one of them! If I get lucky maybe Santa might bring me one some time in the future!

870 express mag. Over the years I have bought acquired and sold several other shotguns. Now it's just the 870 and a relic bolt action 16ga on the mantle.

Instead of owning several shotguns, I own one with several barrels.
One barrel never leaves my house
One wrecks havoc on high flying waterfowl
One is strictly for targeting and one is strictly for NYS deer season

The gun has seen it all. I carried a police magnum in the service and have the upmost confidence with the 870 and love showing up people with their fancy autoloaders.

(I'm not trying to start an argument with auto loader guys or great shotgun shooters, just professing my love for mine)

No I did not read all the post because it's useless. So sorry if somebody already said this... What is the point of posting the SAME EXACT thread as somebody else? I must not be understanding the concept of a forum. I thought it was for discussion and a knowledge bank of information and opinions? Anyways please read through the already existing threads, this thread could have been a continuation off the thread DIRECTLY under it. I'm not saying you have to look through 5 pages to see if someone already asked this question... just look on the first page, at least.

oh by the way
If you outlaw guns then only outlaws have guns.
