Default What would be a good cheap waterfowl gun to use?

Was thinking Remington 887 nitro mag or a mossberg.

Be sure to research the 887 thoroughly before buying one, I have not heard anything flattering about them.

A traditional 870 is a reliable shotgun.

Check out a Benelli Nova for a quality pump gun.

Mossberg makes dependable shotguns and has made many improvements in the past decade or so.

My 500 has gotten it done for years. I've only seen 1 like it and that was a 20ga. All the internal parts are black anodized. I bought a Charles Daily semi field grade a number of years ago that has proven to be VG.

I like the mossy 500. You can also get a second barrel for home defense. The 20 inch barrel is only about $89.

I had a benelli nova and it was a great water fowl gun also check out the new winchester super x pumps they are good looking guns I've never had any experience with one but anything with winchester on it is more than likely good....and BTW look this thread is already starting to become about home defense smh
