gfdeputy2 - So a Mossberg pump is a bad fit for you? A fine gun and right in your price range. Sorry you missed out on that Stoeger. On the other hand, I glad wmi found his barrel. Life sort of evens itself out, eh, boys???
By the way, remember: when you're sighting your shotgun in this Fall, do it on a cold morning. And then don't clean your gun until AFTER you tag your deer. You may shoot 3, or 7, but very rarely 10 slugs through that barrel, zeroing in on that sweet spot at 100, or 150yds. You want to keep your gun in the same cold and 'dirty' condition it is in when you take that last perfect 'zeroed' shot. Cleaning your gun after zeroing in might affect that one first shot through a cold barrel on opening day to prevent the clean kill you want. Safe hunting.
