Auto's look at the Steoger's or Winchester and pumps look at the Benelli Nova or the Remington 870.Look at them all and find one that fits you and your budget.

Msot pump shotguns are almost as fast, with practice, as an auto. The Remington 870 (did I get that number right?) is a great one that eats pretty much any shell you want to feed it. It is also very $$ friendly.

You cant go wrong with reminton! I have an 870(12ga) and I love it. In fact i just bought a 870combo(20ga) for my daughter, this will be her first season to deer hunt with me I cant wait!!!!!!! Any, back to the point!! The remington 870 is one of the(if not the)most reliable shotguns you can buy!!

When I bought a shotgun for deer hunting at Fort Knox in Kentucky here is what I did...(it left me with a lot of options)...
1. Bought a standard edition Remington 1100 with 28" vent ribbed Rem-choked barrel, synthetic stock...$400 at Walmart
2. Bought a Remington fully rifled 20" barrel with rifle sights from Cabelas...$220
3. Bought a set of swivels from Cabelas...$18
4. Bought a full length weaver base (I believe it was originally for a Marlin 336)...$12 (local sporting goods store)
5. Bought two scopes with quick release Quad-lok rings...rings $15 each from Walmart, scope prices could vary (one scope is a 3-9x40 with duplex crosshairs, the other is a 1-4x20 with circle plex for Turkey hunting)
6. Had my father, a machinist, drill and tap the receiver for the base...he estimated the charges would be about $20-50 depending on the gunsmith/machinist

I now have essentially two scoped shotguns...1 for deer hunting (with backup rifle sights) and 1 for turkey hunting (with the vent rib/bead as backup)...of course, I can remove the scopes and still use the shotgun with the 28" barrel for squirrel, rabbit, sporting clays, ducks, etc.

Got the idea out of a shooting magazine several years ago...works beautifully...

Of course you could do the same with an 870 pump...I will be for my wife and son.
