Default Good first gun

the mossberg 500 has a package that comes with a rifled barrel and a vent rib barrel, i have personally killed a deer at 165 yds with the same setup (mossberg 500, rifled barrel...though i had a bsa red dot) mine shoots the hornady sst slugs very well (that's what i was using when i killed that deer at 165) mines a 12 gauge you may like the 20 for reduced recoil but if i were you i would defiantly go with the 12
