I'd get a blued/wood mossberg 500 with a 28inch barrel for trap/skeet/small game etc. and an 18inch barrel for HD. You can't go wrong with a Mossberg 500.

Which is better? Ford or Chevy?

That said, I just bought a Mossberg 930 last week.

I like both Remmington and Mosburg the 500 Mosburg and the 870 Remington are my favorite shotguns

The main decision though for me was the ease of field stripping and the position of the safety

I found with the Mosburg series that the safety is on top of the receiver where your Cheek-wood be And well out hunting with my uncle we both make the mistake of messing with the safety constantly so when we go to fire the safeties on and We r missing The shots

Although the position of the safety on the Remington . I like better . it still is in a weird spot
It's behind the trigger on the trigger guard instead of in front of the trigger on the trigger guard

I personally chose the Remington Because I don't mess with the safety as much reducing the risk of a accidental discharge
