Picked up a Mossberg 835 Super with a 24" barrel a couple weeks ago. Really like the magazine capacity for 3 1/2's, I have $190 invested.

That's a good deal....I like the 835s I'm just not a fan of the 500s

I bought a Remington Express Super Magnum in 1998 and its killed deer, turkey, quail, rabbit, snakes and its put meat on the table via turkey shoots.

It has fed every type shell from 3 1/2'' 00Buck to 2 3/4 #9 shot without issue. Its black synthetic stock and matte finish still looks good after 15yrs. Ive had a couple Mossbergs and they were decent shotguns but they are gone. I will never part with my 870 and if I do buy a new shotgun in the future it will be a new Browning A5. Just like the one my dad carried when I was a kid.

The new A5 is totally different than the one your dad carried. Totally. Inertia action.

Get a Benelli Nova or a Browning BPS if you want a new pump gun. I would personally buy a used 870 Wingmaster, and Ithaca or Winchester. I refuse to own a mossturd.

All the brands mentioned are quality firearms and will get the job done, although there are some folks here that will still disagree. You need to go to a well equipped gun shop and try them all on for "size". There will be some shotguns that feel uncomfortable shouldered and some that feel just okay. Look for the one feels like it is a part of you. You'll know it when you feel it. Once you've determined which "one", go shop for the price of that brand and model.

I don't like either one. Check out the Benelli Nova.

Beneli Nova - Never heard anyone complain about performance. Recoil - Yes, looks like space gun - yep.

Now they do make a recoil reducer which I highly advise if your going to shoot magnums. Problem - it puts all the weight in the back of the gun.
