Remington 870 i've used it to hunt everything from deer to bear, never had a problem with it.

Guys, The OP is from Turkey and is hunting European Boar. The Turks make some great shotguns. I would look at a Semi made in Turkey. My Charles Daly is and it is VG overall. 12ga w/ 5 tubes. Really light for a 24" barrel and very accurate. The difference between 2 3/4 and 3" is 1/8oz of shot w/ no difference in velocity w/ lead. Get a nice side by side and you have a great bird gun also.

I started thinking, hunting is a sport of skill, not firepower. I'm old school. I use a 9.3x57, 8x57 or 6.5x55. I'm good w/ an old paper hulled 12ga w/ #4 lead for nasty critters out to 30 yards. I also carry a big knife. I know I'm a little bit smarter then my qaurry, so old school is more fun. Even if I come home empty handed.

As one member stated they are shy in Europe? But even at that do not underestimate a wounded pig. Remember their will to survive like most wild animals. Depending on you budget a good pump 12 Ga in 2 3/4 or 3" or semi-auto would do the job. And as the one member stated, if you are hunting in close wooded areas it might not hurt to back up the slugs with a buck or two! Also if you are going to use a shotgun. Get it and get to the range with the ammunition you are going to use and do some testing on distance and bullet or projectile drop at specific yardage. The slugs drop a little more than your 30-06 at specific yardage.

As i said earlier im going not for the meat because de people in turkey don't eat pig meat we hunt the boars becuase of the overpolutian .
we go alot of woods , the population multipleyes here so much that other species like whitetail , red deer are beginning to die out at our woods.
and even lateley in febuari , a boar chased an local man op a tree nearby our home , it was 15mile from my home . After the boar chased him up he called with his phone the local police millitary when the police millatray came the boar fled away! the scar was big his leg was cut open by the tusk of the boar. thats why i want a a strong shotgun if it noticies me and comes to close i switch from my 30-60 to my rem 870 and shoot it ! Btw i going to use sabot slugs , im going to test it out on the targetinning range !

Sizir, the first time i ever heard about a hog encounter, it was from a local deer hunter whose rifle got tangled up in a bush or something while he was being chased back to his truck by an upset mother hog. The hog destroyed one of his large, expensive mud tires on his truck, while the hunter watched helplessly from the top of the truck.

Try very hard to take a handgun in case of emergency.

Carry the pistol, or carry a really good first aid kit, in my opinion.
