Tommy,i would look into a remington 870 combo. An express or whatever you find. i would buy a supermag meaning a 12 gauge that shoot the 3 1/2 inch shells. this is just nice to have in case you want to shoot those big shells. the 870 is everywhere easy to find and the cost of a fully rifled barrel isn't to bad. if anything happens everybody sells remington and thier parts are easy to find. For your best price check out walmart and if you want to save more buy a synthetic stock
The Mossberg 500 is a great inexpensive gun IMO just as good as the Remington 870. With the Remington Hevi-Shot 3" shells I see no real need for a 3-1/2" for most people. I could see it for turkey but that is about it. They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759.
