what shotgun should i get?
 
input please.

im gonna be buying a shotgun soon, prolly by the end of this month, and i was wondering what would be good.

im hoping for a not too expensive, but quality shotgun with pistol grip and stock

you cam buy a moss 500 for about 230 bucks and buy an advanced technoloy collapsable stock for 60 bucks through cabelas. the cool thing with the stock is that you can off the tube assembly and have your pisol grip as well

Check out the Saiga 12s. They come with/can have pistol grips and folding stocks added. They cycle very fast. You have the option of 10 round mags or 20 round drums as well.

Of the lower end shotguns I believe that the Rem. 870 Express is by far the best built and the best for the money.

Hong - In your price range, I would definitely be looking for a Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870. Either one would be an ideal choice for home defense and are proven shotguns for multiple applications. They both offer an extensive aftermarket, but the Remington's is a tad bit stronger/varied.

Either one is easy to use, easy to take apart and learn on, not to metion reliable.

I've put thousands of rounds through an 870 while trap shooting and hunting without a single problem.

They are very dependable.

Take care

I have a Remington 870 Marine Magnum. I stake my life and my family's life on its dependability in a time of need. Of course I have a few other little goodies just in case.;)

I would go with, and I'm going to once I get around to buying a shotgun, a Remington 870. A LOT of upgrade options.

The 870 has been very dependable for me during hunting--never a problem with the gun....getting to the ammo was a problem with the hunter on one duck excursion. ;)

he wanted cheap price. a saiga 12 is great, but the base model is not pistol grip or collapsible stock. Those mods will wind up requiring him to spend closer to a grand for everything. Just a basic saiga is between $500 and $600 these days.

The 870, as mentioned a dozen times already, is the most practical way to go. You want to get an auto-loader instead of pump? I say a remington 1100 tactical at a recent gun show for $600. I have one, and it is a GREAT shotgun.
