Excellent article in the nov/dec USPSA magazine "Front Sight"
concerning shotguns for competition.

The one which you have in your hands when you're in combat. All else is irrelevant. :D

If you want a dozen pages of this, use the search button in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

by the way, i certainly don't claim to know "the best" shotgun!
but i will tell you what i like. Currently i have four shotguns.
mossberg 590, rem 870 magnum, hk benelli M1, hk benelli M3.
and i love each one like i love my own kids (well almost).
I am fastest with the 590 tho that is certainly a product of a LOT of practice. the M1 and the 870 have been out to the range once as they both were recently aquired. the M3 is at the FFLs as I write. these are the four shotguns i have always wanted and now i can test and evaluate to my hearts content.

I'll second Benjamin's suggestion to use the search function... This is one of the more popular discussions..
