I voted other, because i have used a mossberg, remington, and a SKB.
I gave up the others and love my SKB semi-auto 12 gauge, 2 3/4 in. Don't need anything bigger than 2 3/4 if your good enough. haha
Keep the sportsmanship on the top of your list along with taking kids out and teaching them the love of the sport. Whether it be hunting or fishing, teach them the right and smart way to be a Sportsman.
