You just cannot expect answers that help you with that title...

The best HD guns in semi auto are beyond your budget significantly and most of the better pumps are north of $500...

I would, as always, say the best budget HD gun will be an American made gun built to sell to those of us who are more utilitarian... The Mossberg 500 is what I prefer but the Maverick 88 by Mossberg is a few bucks less and has a crossbolt safety at the trigger guard some prefer...

Next would be a Remington Express 870 but I do not like the unfinished metal look and there seems to be more occurrences of rough/tight chambers needing polished to make hull extraction reliable...

I shy away from the 3rd world import guns (mostly 870 clones) as the parts may not interchange easily and you never know if there will be a reliable parts stream in the future for them...
