Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 in 12ga or 20ga would probably fit the bill.
I would handle both and see which I preferred as far as things such as my preference on safety location, which shoulders the best, etc.
IMO, both are usually equally reliable.
I'll throw this out for no other reason than it's what I prefer for HD cause it's light, compact, large capacity and very versatile. And a fun plinker with either 15 or 30rd mags.
