Default First shotgun.

I am 19. I own a few guns already just not a shotgun. I have a 40 s&w handgun, 243 rifle, and 22 rifle. Are there certain manufacturers I should avoid? Any recommendations are welcome. I know the obvious Rem 870 vs Mossberg 500. Any others? Thank you.

Budget: $300-550.

Good luck finding a good shotty.

Yes, seems it's not possible for me to change it to something else, so it will do for now.

Really nothing better than the 870 in a 12 you can use it for deer to dove and it is the most reliable and tough gun I have ever owned and certainly a great bargain with it's price.

I got my first shotgun when I was 18. A double barrel 12 gauge. $100 from an old buddy. Not bad for a first gun, huh?

+1
You really can't beat the remmy 870 or mossy 500
I spent a pretty penny and went with the tactical 590A1
But my next shottie will probably be the 870, for kicks and giggles
