I'm new to the site & am in need of some advice. I've been hunting for a long time, but seriously hunting for only a couple of years. When I started, I found an old Stevens single shot & some 000 shells & away I went. That's what I've been using & killing a few deer with up until last year. My friend has an old 1100 he is letting me use & I really like it.....it doesn't kick like that Stevens! I do not want to keep using his gun, it's in great shape & I don't want to drop it or damage it in any way. I'm looking for a decent shotgun for all around hunting. Used is definitely an option. I like to turkey hunt and deer hunt. While deer hunting, I have killed a deer with a slug, so I'm thinking maybe a gun with interchangeable chokes. Pump or automatic doesn't really matter to me. Budget is in the $500 range, new or used. I would appreciate some insight on this. Way too many options out there for me to feel comfortable making a decision.
Thanks in advance!
