    I can't decide between the 887 or sxp. I love both of them but I only need one. I am going to hunt with it and shoot competitively as well.
    I grew up with remington, but I really like the sxp. Maybe you guys could help. I don't want an 870.

    A sxp for sure I wouldn't give $100 for a 887 they will kick your head off, they feel very awkward and I have heard problems of them rusting under the plastic on the barrel.....also check out the benelli nova it is what Remington is trying to compete with in the 887 the nova is a much better gun I loved the one I had

    Well, I am a Remington lover, but between those two I would say the Winchester. Don't like the 887 at all. Remington's proof to the world that Benelli did not have the market cornered on ugly. :) However, the Novas have a good reputation as a gun which the 887 has had problems approaching.
