Staying in the 12 guage, price range of around 500 dollars, I tried out some guns. Based on that I believe I can narrow my selection down somewhat. I have eliminated the Mossberg 500 and 800 series. The Moss has shorter fore grip and I tend to grip closer to the receiver.
So that leaves me with the Remington 870 and Benelli Nova.
What I saw there left me with some questions and i would appreciate any opinions
I like the feel of an 870 with a thumb hole stock (pistol grip, shurshot) - is that a bad idea for a turkey gun?
I liked the feel of the action of the Nova the best.
I picked up a Benelli auto with a pistol grip and I liked that (out of my price range). Does Benelli make or can I make a turkey gun out of a Nova with a pistol grip?
The Nova felt heavier, which I did not like. The Nova looked like a better quality gun, but the Nova seemed to rattle a little more.
What is the difference between a Nova and a super Nova, is it just the stock to reduce kick
Pros and Conse between a Nova, 870 and I guess a super Nova
Are pistol grips bad hunting shotguns? I don't think its traditional for shotguns to hunt with. I did not grow up with shot guns like that, but I have been out of hunting and shooting for years.
