A new Mossberg 935 in Black sells for $399 at ***** Sporting goods. You can't find a better workhorse gun out there. Takes a licking and shoots great.

thats a toughy, i see one guy has mentioned the mossberg, it is a very reliable gun, but is only meant for heavy waterfowl and turkey loads, and doesnt cycle light loads reliably, therefore, i wouldnt go with that, i dont know of many autos that are good guns and under 400 bucks, unless you wanted to buy one used, id look for an 11-87 magnum or supermagnum

Thanks for the info. i checked the Traditions and they look like a good gun but looks can be deceiving, quality is very cheap. i have the Mossberg 500 (20 ga.) and 835 that i use to turkey hunt with.While checking around the local gun shops, i came across a used REM 11-87, 3" in very good shape for $525, aquired the extra $125 (from my wife who was p.o. but gave it to me anyway) and purchesed it. Can't wait to shoot it.
Thanks again,

You may also consider the Beretta ES 100 ("Pintail"). I think that it sells for $ 400 -450 in the camo version. I have two (one wood & one camo) and love them.

About 2 1/2 years ago I bought the Charles Daly Field semi. It won't take a 3 1/2" shell, but that really hasn't been a problem for me. Anyway, I've put about 3 cases of shells through it and I've only had it jam on me once. It even continued to fire reliably on a trip to ND with a broken o-ring. There are hundreds of aftermarket chokes for it because it takes RemChoke tubes.

The best news? You can pick one up for about $200. I got mine for $175 because the gun shop couldn't find the original box for it. I've been really happy with my "Chuck D"

Wallyworld has Beretta 390s for $499. If you can't swing the extra $100, I suggest that you look for a decent used one in your price range.

I have well over 50k rounds each through 2 Beretta 390s. They are a great semi auto.

I would choose a gun with 3 in capability. Can't go wrong with an Remington 11-87. Remingtons are cheap and reliable.

An excellent choice, turk. You should be very happy with that gun.

To the rest of us: we can stop with the suggestions now...... :biggrin:
