That would be excellent advice, except I haven't seen a 391 in Wal-Mart for several years.
To the OP: think "used". You should be able to find a decent Browning Gold or BPS; Remington Wingmaster, 11-87, or 1100; or Winchester SX-series in the used rack that will give you excellent service for the rest of your life. One tip: 3" only; no 3 1/2" guns. Many models of shotguns are dead reliable in 3" versions, but have problems with the 3 1/2" versions.
