Shotgun for hunting

Is that a good shotgun for hunting? Just want some opinions on it. I would be using it for deer, turkey, squirrel, etc.

How, when, where, are you hunting?
1. The pattern board is your friend, use the Dam thing!!!
2. The maximum range of a firearm and/or cartridge, is usually measured in miles, and means nothing.
2a. The effective range of a firearm and/or cartridge, is usually (the ability of the shooter) measured in yards, and means everything.

i lean towards remingtons myself, but there is nothing wrong with the mossberg, but when set your first 3.5" mag off in that 7lbs mossy you will not forget it. but it will do the jobs you have in store for its use. eastbank.

Nothing wrong with it. Unless you really need to use 3.5" shells then save yourself some money and buy the 500 combo.

Unless you are going goose or swan hunting I would get a 3" chamber 500 combo. Less money and shorter stroke. I prefer Remingtons, but the Mossberg is a solid choice also.
What could have happened... did.

I do not trust Remington's dating service accuracy. If they were, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.
