    Here's another vote for the pump. I've seen so many wasted shots with autoloaders. The pumps are fast but deliberate. That split second between the two means the difference between a wild second shot and a deliberate one more likely to find it's mark. I grew up wing shooting and that has been my experience.

    Hey Chris - my son bought a Mossberg 930 semi-auto and he's been happy with it.

    Why an auto loader? Get a 870 Remington 12 gauge and you can handle anything. - locoman

    I still have mine from when I was a teen along with several other pumps. It has never failed over all of those years!

    This might be a long shot in your area but I bought a Remington 20 gauge 1187 the other day on clearance at Walmart for $124 plus tax. Another store had the 12 gauge 1187 discounted to the same price but it sold before I could get there. If you run the UPCs on Brickseek or Dexter Clearance you can see if there are any near your zip code. FWIW the 12 gauge UPC is 047700298795 and the 20 gauge is 047700836263.

    Only problem I've ever had with my 870 is a stovepipe failure to eject. I pumped it with a little more authority after that and never had an issue ever again

    You can shoot a pump almost as fast as an autoloader but when you pump it, it pulls the barrel down out of recoil lining up for the next shot. Not with a Autoloader. - Locomon

    Did you buy another gun yet Chris? I bought a Mossberg 930 Waterfowl Pro and an extra turkey barrel last fall. It is a fantastic piece of gear. The fibre optic sights on the turkey barrel are awesome! I had the field/turkey combo version (26” barrel) ordered but it wasn’t going to get to me in time for the fall season, so I went with the Waterfowl Pro. It’s got stainless internals etc, so is a better all weather gun. I ended up spending a bit more having to buy a second barrel, but being in a place whereus turkey hunters are a rarity, my selection was limited. You should be able to find a turkey version easily in NY.

    I have a CZ 712 G2 auto loader I picked up from Cabellas on sale when my beater side by side became a single shot. Paid $458 for it. Nice gun for the money. Checkered walnut stock, five choke tubes, and all metal is bronze ceracoated.
