Which Shot gun to buy for a new Bird hunter?
I'm looking into buying my first shot gun. i have narrowed it down between three guns.
First, the remington 887 Nitro mag, from the reviews i have read on this gun is that its nice but with the new ejectors remington is using alot of people are getting jams on shooting the empty shell out or reloading the new shell.
Second, the mossberg 530 ATS waterfowl series, again nice gun, but seeing alot of reviews of it jamming.
Third, I am leaning most towards the remington 870 express, a good reliable gun that has been around for a while, it has had its ups and downs but still a trustable gun.

I plan on doing a lot of bird hunting in the next couple years and want a reliable shot gun that i don't have to worry about jamming on me when I pull up for a shot. All advice and opinions would greatly help, thanks.

Personally, I'd stay very far away from the 887. All of the ones I've felt in the gun stores have been absolutely terrible.

A Remington 870 will serve you well and out of those three choices I'd recommend this.

Of the three I would go 870.

What are you going to be hunting? Waterfowl, upland game, dove, squirrels? All of the above?

870 for sure.
