Are you looking for a 12 of 20 gauge, synthetic or wood stock, does it shoot 2and 3/4- 3- or 3and1/2 inch shells. These are somethings you need to ask yourself. Also, what are you going to hunt with it; Ducks, geese, turkey, pheasant, quail. I like the Remington 11-87, it is a little heavier than some shotguns but it is a good gun and will last a long time. They run between 5 and 6 hundred, but if you watch the ads you catch it a little cheaper. Whatever you get make sure the gun fits you, you may have to wait to save a little more money to get the gun you really like.

cannot go wrong with the remington 11-87. i do suggest getting the synthetic stocks if you deer hunt though...i made the mistake of buying my first deer gun with wood stocks and as anyone would i want my guns to be nice even though they are put through heck. may be a little more than you want to spend but it is worth it.

i dont have any 12 gauges. i got a 20 ga mossburg 500. during hunting season it has a rifle stock, and aftermarket 26" barral w interchaingable chokes. in the off season it gets its 18" barral and pistol grip put back on it. i want a 12 ga for hunting so i can keep my 20 ga in off season mode. plus a 12 ga would be nice for turky, as well as using buck shot, when i want durring deer season.
