Hmm...I was really thinking semi-auto, but Pump wouldn't be bad either. I'm not a fan of a bolt slug gun, don't know why, just doesn't have an appeal.
I like the looks of the Ithaca 37 Deerslayers. Those are pretty sweet guns, my buddy has one, he has put many a deer down with it.
The other one that caught my eye in a pump was the Benelli Nova or Supernova slug guns. Don't know much about them, but they sure do catch the eye.
On semi-auto, I'd have to handle a Mossberg, haven't ever felt one up. Are they gas or inertia? I'm a huge fan of inertia guns, never really liked gas guns due to dirtiness.
The other two big ones are the Browning Auto 5 and the Gold, both of those are sweet looking guns. That and it is Browning, even though I'd be paying for the name, it is one I can trust.
