Mossberg 930
 
Just wondering what everyone thought of this shotgun? I'm looking for something for trap shooting. I'm not looking to spend a ton because I'm just getting into it. I was looking for a Beretta 3901 but I can't seem to find them. If you have any other suggestions let me know as well.

And why is it do hard to find a shotgun in a walnut finish these days?

For sport, for a traditional outline gun, the Mossberg 930 is award winning. I think if you find the standard sport cartridge cycles and you clean the thing all the time it is probably a fine choice.

I do NOT recommend the 930 SPX as a defensive arm!

Another cheaper dependable is the STOEGER m3500 I bought mine for $555 and I haven't a problem yet it has cycles everything from 1oz Target loads to 3 1/2 in turkey loads

Yeah, I'm using this for trap only. No hunting and certainly not as defensive.

It's been a while since I've posted about this again and I'm getting ready to buy. I'm thinking I want to go with the 930. But I'm wondering, should I go with something with a 3" chamber or 3 1/2" chamber?

I like 3 1/2 for turkeys but 3 inch will work ok also

I'm 99% sure I'll never use it for hunting, just trap. Just wondering which would be better to use, or is there one that is harder to find?

If ur never gonna hunt with it I would buy the 3 inch gun....the 930 and 935 are both readily available at any mossberg dealer

Polygon,

I have a Mossberg Model 930 Camo Turkey and it is a fine shotgun! I have owned it for around 4 years.
In fact I just put one of the new EOTech Holographic camo sight on it today and zeroed it in for a Turkey hunt coming up in Texas in a few weeks. I also love the regular fiber optic sights on the gun! It is a fine weapon and I would highly recommend it. And they do not cost an arm and a leg either! Good price and good quality.
