The best shotgun is any reliable shotgun in the hands of a well trained and practiced shooter.

It is more about the man then the gun.

It wouldn't be a pump for me if I wanted to shoot skeet and be competitive at it.

The best shotgun is the one that performs when needed. I prefer a mossberg 500

Me too, mossy 500 is great, very modular, and very versatile.

I shoot all kinds of shotgun shell out of my mossberg. I shoot 2 3/4 inch shell to 3" shell. Lead or steel.
But i know steel isnt ready the best to shoot.
I shoot all kinds of deer slug not good either for my gun but if it aint broke it will shoot it still
