    Benelli Nova Pump Shotgun

    If you're getting back into hunting then you need a shotgun. While I like the Remington 870, I'd recommend the Benelli Nova Pump. My buddy just picked up a 3.5" magnum with 26" barrel and 3 factory chokes in excellent condition for $250. Brand new runs between $350-$400.

    So my vote is: Other - Benelli Nova Pump

    I was going to stay out of the shotty debate, but unless you are going to take one of those professional shotgun combat courses where you run through 2000rds in 3 days any of the shotguns mentioned will be fine.

    I have a NEF Pardner Pump that is a clone of the 870. Paid $169 new. Fellas, don't knock it 'til you have tried it.

    Agreed. Again, I think the purchase of a new shotgun will ultimately come down to personal preference! :)

    I suggested the 870 primarily because it can serve not only self defense but as an excellent field gun, with a Remchoke barrel addition.

    Barrel is just a little thicker gauge steel. The thinner, lighter one that comes with the 500 would most likely be o.k. if not to many rounds were used but I think the heavier one will last longer if you do a lot of shooting.

    If you can't buy two at one time just buy the one you like the best. If you don't you'll regret it until you do buy your favorite.
