I think it's hard to beat the Mossberg 500 Combo for price versatility & quality.

Have to agree with JoeR. It only takes a few minutes to swap barrels and install or remove the magazine plug. It will let you hunt and defend for a reasonable cost.

the 870 is just as easy to switch rolls. the down side the 870 is a tank compared to a 500.

The Browning Citori 12 gauge. You might be able to find a used one in your price range.

I seem to remember the Mossberg Model 500 is the only shotgun to pass the US Army's Mil-Spec 3443E test, "a brutal and unforgiving torture test with 3,000 rounds of full power 12 gauge buckshot and the Mossi is a better bargain.

the Mossberg 500 or 590, the Remington 870. either of these will serve you well. either one can be customized with different barrels, stocks and other accessories to personalize it to fit your needs. want a hunting or casual shooting shotgun? use a vented and choked 26-28" barrel for bird hunting or shooting clays. want to do some short range deer hunting? get a 20" slug barrel with sights or mount a scope on it. need a SD/HD shotgun? use the 18.5" open choked barrel and a mag extension and some good #4 shot. either one is very versatile and easy to configure to your needs. either one is rugged and dependable and i taken care of will last almost forever.

What is the difference between the Mossberg 500 and the 590?
