I know... this question is old, right? Well, I thought I'd give it a shot anyway. I'm looking for recommendations on a new semi-auto 12 ga that can handle ducks, geese, pheasants, & deer. I've been using an 870 for years but I'm thinking it's time to upgrade to a semi-auto. I'm also looking to add a scope for deer. Oh, almost forgot to mention that I'm also a southpaw and do shoot left handed. My 870 is a right handed gun and it's never bothered me that much but I figure if I'm going to upgrade I might as well try to get it all and go with a left handed gun. Thanks for the input!
