looking to buy a shotgun suggestions?

hey I am looking to buy a pump action shotgun that i can do both deer,bird and rabbit hunting with I want it to look good so polished finish or laminate is a must and i know im going to have to buy a few more barrels so a shotgun with barrels availible will help me greatly. So, what are your suggestions to a brand new shooter and hunter?

perfect shotgun

I really think you should consider the mossburg 500 for three reasons.
1 you can get a smoothbore with just about any choke
2 you can get a rifled slug barrel that is relatively accurate
3 you can get a black powder barrel to muzzel load for black powder hunt

I think the mossburg just might be the perfect all around gun

Old is new again

Ithaca is back in business again.Look into buying one of them,unique and very reliable,if they were not they would not have been reborn again.I own two of them one m37D.V. with two v.r. bbls.pump gun.the other is a m51 again two v.r. bbls both are 12ga,very versatile guns.The plus with the new guns is they now come with screw in chokes,semi-auto
