Your not going to find many shotguns for under $150 but I would hit the pawn shops and try to find a beat up winchester 1300, remington 870, or a mossberg 500. Just make sure the action works good the outside doesn't really matter

I think a NEF single shot is under 150.

A used mossberg maverick would be a good one. They're only $200 new so I assume a used one would be under $150. Good guns to

You don't need a rifled barrel to shoot slugs. if thats what you want try finding a used combo. But my 870 is set with modified choke and red dot sight.

My own recomendation is to look for one of the older (think 1940s or 50s) Mossberg Bolt action shotguns. I currently own two of them, and one is my dedicated slug gun. My 185-d came with a sling, extra magazine, all three original choke tubes, ( they screw on to the outside of the barrel, so the gun can be shot with out a choke in place), a choke tube wrench, and a Redding peep sight, for a total of $65. The best part, It will put three 20 gauge slugs through 3 beer cans all day at 70 yards, and it only weighs 6 pounds, making it a breeze to carry afield all day. If you run across one, check it out.
