Hey All, I am looking into buying my first gun which I want primarily for hunting/home defense. At first I was set getting a pistol but after talking to more experienced gun owners they said a shotgun would probably be the best fit for my needs and budget. My questions to you all if what do you think the best shotgun in for around $300? I'm looking for a repeating shotgun so I wouldn't have to reload after every shot or two. I've seen some lever action and pump shot guns that fit this description such as the Mossberg 500 and Winchester 1887 but I truly don't know very much about them. My criteria is basically this: 1) Around $300 2) Repeating Action 3) Durable/Reliable 4) Easy to find, average priced ammo 5) Good for home defense/hunting Any suggestions or more information would be very appreciated. Thanks a lot for the help guys.
