    Looking for a new, reasonably priced ($250-$350) pump action or semi-auto shotgun for skeet shooting, target shooting, and squirrel hunting. Please name the brand and model of any suggestions. Thanks!

    Check the used racks at your local gun shops. You can find a used mossberg 500 or remington 870 express magnum in the $200-300 at most shops that do trade ins. Also check the store ads for gander mtn, bass pro, and dick's sporting goods. Check out a few models, find what you want, and enjoy.

    A lightly used Winchester 1200/1300/120 is an excellent shotgun. The 120 is the plain Jane version and very serviceable. They can be had at the low end pf your price range.

    It depends on where you live and what shop you're at. I know that at the local Gander Mountain you can expect to pay atleast $50-$200 more on something than at the local gunshop I work at. If I recall right I've seen Remingotn 870 Express Magnums for sale around $250 new.

    Is there a difference between an express and an express magnum?

    No, Express Magnum is it's full name, but a lot of people just refer to it as the Express.

    buy used.

    how about a Savage 124 straight pull boltaction 12ga shotgun they only made them in 12ga.
    Or a fast shooting Kessler Model 50 Levermatic came in 12/16 and 20 gages!
    it may not be new but would shure be the talk of the range!

    I bought my 870 express for about $320 new at a local gunshop,that's about what they are going for unless you go to a huge superchain that offers sales.
