Default Wedding gift

Hey everybody, i have the honour of being the best man for my cousins wedding. Was thinking for a gift I might try to find a shotgun. Looking for some ideas and input from everybody. I don't want to spend a fortune, does anyone know of any cool ideas?

33204,

I guess first of all I would ask what will he probably be doing with it if he gets it. What type of hunting, clay shooting, home defense or just to own one. Single Barrel, Pump, Semi-Auto, Over and Under and what price range did you have in mind? I think it is a great idea! And something he will have to keep to remember your friendship.

No definite use, just looking for some ideas. Any type, any model. I just want to hear some favourites and if anybody can think of a great shotgun that they would have appreciated for a gift from their best man.

Just get him a Mossberg 500, with wood furniture. He can easily convert it, for any purpose he wants...

I would suggest either a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500 Series Shotgun. Both are good quality for the money and will not cost you an arm and a leg! Not to mention they will last a lifetime with just simple care! I like the Mossbergs but the Remington would be my first choice. I have owned both and still do. Both great weapons.

Ok. I'll go.....

A side by side, home defense 12 ga. With rail and light. Something with a stock that would fit either newlywed.

Thinking around $400 total....

I like that idea too....this one is O/U. but has rails for all your toys. Mossy HS12, and is right in that $$$ range.

I always thought the brides father brought the shotgun.
