Re: Remington Vs Mossbergs Vs Benelli Opinions
I too have an 835 turkey gun and like the other poster said it's a dream come true when shooting magnum rounds thru it. Could point a little better if shooting at a bird in flight, but I never use it that way anyway. Another shotgun well worth the look in pump actions is the Browning BPS. I have the upland bird gun with the English cut stock and either a 20" or 22" barrel. Once I got that shotgun, the 870's had to go! Yes it's that nice. Great little pheasant gun and swings fairly well (nothing like a good side by side with the splinter forend and English stock). Another great little shotgun I own is a Baretta A390 (or 391) in 20 gauge. Very light weight, and shoots extremely well (not far behind my O/U's). But for anything the OP is going to do with it, I'd simply buy a Mossberg 500 or 535 and be done with it. They are not all that bad on birds, and are really well built. Extra barrels are very common. The only thing I ever saw shoot slugs better than one of them was the Savage bolt action slug gun and a custom built Mod. 700 Remington that shot slugs. But a slug gun is not a bird gun, and vise versa.
