i just got a mossberg 535 that will handle 2 3/4 all the way to 3 1/2 shells and i love it. very versitile with both 22 inch and 28 inch barrels. synthetic camo stock which is great. i love the beauty of wood but that first scratch on your stock and you get that sick feeling in your stomach. shoot sharp is the word fellas.

Is there any need for concern about the Weatherby SA-08 due to it being made in Turkey. The price is right but what about the quality and dependability?

Well Remingtons are still my first choice I have a 40 year old 1100 12, 38 year old 870 16 both still look pretty darn good, great looking WOOD stocks, did replace the 1100 barrel recently with a Winchoke new one for use on skeet range. I used to have a Weatherby Orion but let it go for a nice profit in Europe.

Jackdog's comments about the ugly guns registers with me. I like the look and feel of a walnut stock and a blued barrel. Most of us like to enjoy looking over the old shotgun in the reloading room or to show off to a friend. Sure the camo synthetic guns are the reasonable choice for the field. They don't reflect light at an inopportune time, they provide a better grip in wet or cold weather and they are impervious to the weather and all kinds of abuse. Sorry, I don't care! The gun manufacturers would have you believe they are the only way to go and they have much of the population convinced. Well, right or wrong, I am not in the habit of accepting what a salesman would have me believe. You don't suppose the synthetic stocks are more cost effective for the manufacturers?? Well, they have a right to turn a profit and if they don't we will not have their firearms to enjoy. Nevertheless, my shiny Baretta or old Remington 870 suit me fine and I can adapt them to be better field guns. For those of you appreciate a fine looking gun but acknowledge it to be less than ideal in the field, here is a simple way to address their most serious shortcoming. Get a roll of camo tape, sit down to watch the football or hockey game and cover up that shotgun from butt to barrel. If you don't believe this to be important, look for your hunting buddy across the slough and the most likely thing that will get your attention is his face or the flash of his gun in the setting sun. After the bird season strip that tape down and give it a good cleaning and shed pure function for a little beauty. A beautiful shotgun has to hit my shoulder just right then it has to be pleasing to the eye... I'll work around a host of shortcomings if it measures up in those departments. Only guns that I shoot well and look good are keepers. Perhaps that makes me a little shallow and perhaps I'm getting a soft these days as recoil has become a significant factor in my shotgun selection. I have shot heavy loads in a Remington 870 since I was a kid. I would often have a bruised shoulder at the end of the hunt. I never noticed during the shooting what so ever. I can't say the same anymore. The 3 inch HIGH Velocity steel loads kick big time. It is more of a sharp whack then the powerful push of the heavy lead loads. I had occasions in the field when I did not want to fire the gun again. Guys, I used a .300 Win as a kid in Alaska and I now fire a .375 H & H Magnum without any complaining. I am not what you would call recoil sensitive, but firing those 1550 fps steel loads repeatedly got my attention. I purchased a Baretta autoloader to address those recoil issues..... That is the story I told my wife and I'm sticking to it. You are welcome to use this same excuse with your next shotgun purchase.

I shoot a Mossberg 500 in 3" Magnums and do just fine in turkey season. Not only can i use that gun in turkey season but i can shell down and use it for small small game. Not bad for $300.

IN my humble opinion anyone that buys a BENNELI at this price has more dollars than sense.As a kid growing up the thought of a doulbe barrel shotgun sounded awesome/ and all the western movies only helped to reinforce that, As i developed as a shooter i've taken a more critical look at what works and why.When i was 12 years i was shooting targets out to a thousand yards with the all army rifle team before anyone said i shouldn;t expect to hit at these distances.I have been a certified referee with the N.S. S. A over 35 years ago. A LITTLE SECRET the guy that breaks all those clays with a BENNELI , he can do it with any other shotgun as well .I don't expect anyone to agree with my opinions on this review/ they are mine and just what an old bird and clay shooter think ,

WINCHESTER the cost is affordable on these autos , i'm not sure how dependable they are still havin bad dreams about the model 1400 and the 101 o/u is a bit pricey as this model is good to look at most gun dealers shy away from it .

WEATHERBY is a world reknown name so this gun is probably dependable/ cost just a bit high. The stock has a bit more drop than i personally care for , but all in all looks like a sucess

WTG REMMINGTON, Although I prefer pretty wood/ this model with resistant coating and steel reciever should last a lifetime, made along the same lines as the 870 spells excellence and the cost is right with the times, thank you REMMINGTON NOW SHOW THE WORLD HOW TO MAKE AN O/U THAT FITS THE BILL.

the CORTANNA is another good looking gun . the 16 gauge is not used in registered shoots, so it's basically an outcast, LET'S SEE AT 2000.00 PER GUN the 12 20 28 and 410. gauge thats 8ooo.00 dollars minus the shells and sign up fees i'll be ready to take on the best in the world.L et's keep the cost down and these in ITALY.

I finished my reviews on the 2007 new shotguns on the market i musta missed the 2008 .AFTER LOOKING AT THE FIRST ONE FOR 2009 I ;m not impressed. I'LL give you my views on the rest as follows.I believe a shotgun should be flexible for different uses /dependable w/o much need for maintenace,it should have a fairly straight stock for fast target aquisition/it should have a good feel and not cost above the avereage mans means, Some of the more costly guns are probably more desireable but this doesn't make them more effective in the hands of a finished shooter.

if i buy the most expensive gun, will i automaticaly shoot better scores ? very nice guns here but not the common mans choice, the remmington 1100 still rules the roost when it comes to autos, any registered skeet shoot will prove me correct,

Who do all shotguns, other than 2 k OU's have to be so freaken ugly?

Plastic and camo. Yuk.

I want to see Remington, Wimchester and Mossberg make a regular guy's pump or auto that actually looks good and not like some weird space age toy.

The gun company engineers must think it is mandatory on all new designs to try and achieve the most ugly gun ever.

LOL I think what some manfactures are doing is trying to appeal to the keep up with the Jones market/pistol grips and scopes on shotguns are not only uneccesary for turkey hunting at close ranges ,but cumbersome and indentifying as an amatuer that believes more gadgets will make up for inadequite shooting skills,

The Remington 877 seems a lot like the Benelli Nova, except uglier. The only difference I can tell the steel receiver, where with the Nova I quite sure is completely polymer.

I really can't wait to get to see one of these in person, from what I've read it will be as reliable as the 870 but even more durable.
