Default Looking for a new shotgun

If you had around $500 what shotgun would you buy. I'm just looking for some suggestions so I can start doing research. It doesn't matter what you do or would use it for.

Either a benelli nova pump, a winchester super x pump or a Stoeger m3000 auto loader

It depends on what you want one for. Are you a hunter, sportsman (clays and skeet), are you wanting one for the range, or are you looking for HD? If you are looking for a multi-purpose gun, I would get a Mossberg or Remington. The reason is they offer a combo package that gives you a shotgun barrel and a rifled barrel. I bought a Mossberg 500 for my needs, plus I can pimp it up with different options. Another bonus for Mossberg is they offer a 10 year warranty on their firearms.

Good luck in your search!

Another Mossberg fan here; for that money, you could pick up a Mossy 500 with a hunting barrel and a shorter security barrel and have some left for ammo.

This will be my first shotgun so I'm looking to get a multi purpose one. I have it down to either mossberg or benelli.

I prefer the benelli but an extra barrel can be very expensive but the mossburg you can get a combo with both barrels for a good price but you have the rattling forearm on a mossburg....will you be deer hunting or other kinds of hunting

My first car was a VW beetle. I think it is better to start out in a new hobby/interest with the more reasonably priced option.

I have never been unsatisfied with my Mossberg; I have used it for deer hunting, dove hunting, but thankfully not yet for home defense. They also offer a black powder barrel you could swap in for old-school fun.

I've read articles about the rattling forearm. It all boiled down to that's the way they are and will not give you any issues. For that matter Mossberg has a 10 year warranty in case anything goes wrong. Seems to me Mossberg is a no-brainer.

The benelli also has a ten year warranty and the rattling forearm isn't bad just annoying...its whatever you like, I like the benelli better but that's just my opinion
