Ok, 'need' is subjective, but I own pistols, a couple bolt guns, a semi-auto 22lr plinker, but no shotgun.
I prefer a semi-auto for skeet shooting purposes but a pump action is probably fine. At first I wanted a pistol grip, no stock, tacticool model for the house, but I think I'd rather a multi purpose gun that can do some trap shooting, maybe shoot at birds one day, though I don't really see the appeal in that.
Any opinions on the usual suspects or maybe something similar that I haven't considered?
Remington 870, Mossberg 500/590, Benelli Nova... any others? I'd like to spend under $500 but a little over for the right gun is, of course, worth it
