Re: Best pump gun???

Like most hunters, I've owned quite a few pump shotguns over the last 45 plus years... Remington 870 seems to be the AK {gold standard} of pump guns. In my LE does (25 years) it was the go to pump gun for most LE Agency's, along with first time bird hunters. It's a very good shotgun.
But over those years I had plenty of time to compare. Today I have two shotguns in my safe; an older Ithica M37 and a Benelli M3 pump/auto with both a sport and tactical barrel. So which do I like best? To answer the question; it goes to the M37, this shotgun is my all type pick for most everything, it is bullet proof.
just my .02

Remington 870 is what some law enforcers highly like over any other shotguns. Been using it a long time, cheap, reliable and still is a favorite.

This is a little late for christmas but oh well.

Re: Best pump gun???

Way too late for Christmas advise, and i hope your dad liked his present! your a good son! Browning BPS has finer lines than the Rem 870 I.M.O. But of all my shotguns ive owned or still have my Rem 870 is the only one that i trust in ANY hunting/weather condition. its never let me down once! Out of a dozen or so that ive owned and had personal experience with Rem 870 wins the reliability contest. this includes my side by sides/ over and unders/ autos/ and pumps. Hope this helps when selecting your next Christmas gift for your ??father in law?? maybe

P.S. Im up for adoption haha
