i need a new duck gun... where to start?
 
Well I recently decided I would like a new shotgun for duck hunting. I could use some input seeing as the only shotgun I have ever had is a Mossberg 835. I'm looking for something semi auto and don't know where to start. I'd like to keep at $1000 or less. Any help would be appreiated. Thanks

Good luck with that!! Most duck hunters I know favor the Beretta. If you find one for around $1,000 I would advise wearing gloves when you load it into your truck.

Might want to check out Stoeger semi-auto. It's the same action as the Benelli at a much lower price point. From what my nephew describes of his duck hunting, it is not a gun I would want to put much money into. Talk about torture test.

Under $1000 will give you a lot of options. The Stoeger seems to be a good choice. M2000, M3500, and M3000 all seem to be good choices to me.

Gun shows often have a few of the old Spanish SXS 3 1/2 inch 10 gauges kicking around.

Yea I had a stoeger m3500 and It was a really good gun I think I got mine for a little less than $600 best new semi auto you can get for under $800
