Opinions are like belly buttons.
FWIW, I have an 835 and like it very well. I also own an older 500 that I have used a ton for over 30 years and it has been flawless. The only reason I upgraded to the 835 was to shoot steel when it became mandatory. I own 5 barrels for it including a slug barrel and it has taken more game than I could possibly imagine including doves, squirrels, rabbits, quail, ducks, geese and more whitetails than I can count. I gave it a "custom" spray can camo job when I bought it, long before "camo was cool". Kinda sounds like an old Barbara Mandrell country song, doesn't it? On a funny side, The gun and all five barrels only cost me around $200.00 new when I purchased them. My ROI on that firearm is less than $1.00 per kill!
As you can tell I am biased towards the Mossbergs but to be fair, a cousin and a good friend each have a BPS and I like those very well, also.
Good luck with your selection.
