I have been asked a lot lately what the best value is in an "all around" shotgun. Something that can be used for field use and basic home defense from critters and other unwanted guests.
I generally recommend Benelli Nova. I have always had good luck with Benelli.
Any other suggestions for a nice gun where quality meets price at a good value? Probably between 300-800 for most of the people that have asked me so pump or auto is fine. All my shotguns are past that and more specialized so I feel like I don't have a good answer.
