Well I would a shotgun specifically used for when I go camping [not hunting]. I'm not picky on a gauge, as long as its 12,20,410. Make, model and gauge is all I need for a recommendation. I'd prefer not some odd gauge where ammo is ridiculous. As for price, I would like to keep it under 400 brand new. I would like to hear what gun you take while camping. I'm really stuck to a long gun because of NY laws. Thanks. S.S.
