I have an old mossberg 500 12 ga pump with a short barrel, fiber optic sight and carlsons xr turkey choke. I prefer it for running and gunning in the mountains. Short, simple, light and deadly to 50 yds and beyond. Can’t wait to get it out!

Shouldn’t be too hard to find a used Remington 870 or Mossberg 500 pump. I’m going with a 20 gauge.

I have four 870’s. The only one I ever take to the woods is my 20 gauge. Although last year I added a factory Remington 21” barrel with the slug gun sights. Handles like a dream and lights out with federal heavyweight 7’s or TSS 9’s.

Only ever used a Mossberg 500 to actually hunt with. I bought a Remington 870 20 gauge for my wife a few years ago trying to get her into hunting. I like the Mossberg way better.

My primary turkey gun is a Rem 870 super mag with a super full turkey choke and red dot scope.

Remington 870 is going to be hard to beat as far as a reliable, quality, reasonably priced gun.

Remington 1187, with the standard full choke tube. I've used it every year since 1987. Before that it's was a Mossberg 500 pump.

I shoot a benelli nova 12 gauge that I got a pawn shop with a carlsons choke. I bought a 20 gauge version for my wife and it’s great. It’s reasonably priced new. Like others have said, the Remington 870 and mossberg models are trustworthy.

My main gun is a Franchi Affinity compact model. I have an NWTF edition 1300 that I hunt with as well.

This will be my 2nd year of turkey hunting but im using a 870 super mag i bought years ago. For the price and durability i dont think anyone can go wrong with the rem 870s or the moss 500s,835s. I should say i bought the super mag just in case i wanted to hunt turkeys or waterfowl. As a teenager money was always tight so wanted 1 gun that could kill everything i could hunt in Iowa.

Mossberg 500 3 in 1. Rifled barrel, bead, threaded barrel. Use it for slug, upland, and turkey. Just mounted a vortex viper for turkey... can't wait
