I'm a very experienced shooter, mostly with single projectile guns. Most of my field shotguns are getting a little long in the tooth and were bought used anyway. I'm tired of the nagging little issues with them and I want to put them in for repair but, I have decided that I'd like to have a nice brand new field grade shotgun to wear out all by myself while those are in the shop. That's where y'all come in. I need help in the morass of stuff available to choose well. It has to be able to do it all. From casual trap shooting to upland game to ducks to turkey. I don't care about single-shot/auto/pump/SS/OU. I do care about recoil but not so much that I'd look first at an auto. If I could afford an auto that would be killer. I've been out of the buying guns game a long time and there's new stuff out all the time and even makers I've never heard of. I need a basic breakdown in of what's available as it corresponds to brand/model focused on the 200-500 dollar MSRP ranges. Anything above an MSRP of 500 is out of my current league (well, the wife will nut me anyway). Help me pick a decent shotgun. I'm looking for value in a field gun. Meaning price, quality and features in that order are the deciding factors. I require 3 1/2" chamber and 12ga. I figure at least there won't be a 12 bore load I couldn't stick in it. I think I'd like at least a 26" barrel but would gladly take some advice there too. General information is cool. I'm ok with doing more research but some points in the right directions from more experienced shotgunners will probably help.
