What's your shotgun of choice?!

If you were forced to have only one shotgun for the rest of your life, what would it be??

I would choose my Benelli Supernova...an incredible weapon!!!

One of my P-guns.
Edit:
Humm... I just had a thought, how many barrel sets and stocks can we have for one receiver and still have it count as just one gun?

Benelli M-1. I'd be tempted to say one of my 870's, but the Benelli has been just as reliable, is 1/2 lb lighter, and pumps by its self.

870 - the aftermarket support is there and I can swap out barrels for whatever I need it for.

FN SLP - As for speed, the Winchester SX3 is the fastest on record.

Of the guns I have now ....it would be a Browning Citori O/U - the XS Skeet model, adjustable comb, in a 12ga with 30" barrels....( and I could download it like a 20ga ..) or up to a 12ga. I can hunt upland birds with it / even waterfowl ...and shoot all the clay target games with it -even though its not optimal for Trap.

If I was 30 yrs old ( or 30 yrs younger)...and serious about competition ...it would be a Krieghoff K80 - Trap stock with parallel comb, adjustable comb,
30" barrels, with a full Carrier Barrel and a full set of tubes for 20ga, 28ga and .410 from Briley.

Of all the shotguns I own or have owned I really like my Maxus, it would be the one I keep.

Owned a Mossberg 500 for about 15yrs now and it's always done all my shotgun needs. Keep the 18.5" barrel on for HD and swap out the for the 28" barrel for clays/birds.

I would say that the best shotgun that Ive personally handled would be the
Benelli SNT but, I still want a Benelli M4 eventually.
