I personally think it all depends on what you have. Just adapt the available ammunition to the intended usage. For all my outside the home shotgun use, I have a Ruger Red Label Sporting Clays. Works for me. I hunt birds, shoot trap, skeet, sporting clays with it. My son used it to kill a deer a few years back. Buy a gun for what you will use it most for. Then for everything else, adapt.
What about Rem. 1100 or similar?
