I have used Mossbergs in other applications and never had any problems. I guess time will.

I bought a used Remington 870 3" mag with screw-in chokes about 20 yrs ago. I bought an extra full turkey choke and it works like a charm. You can spend alot more, but can't kill 'em any deader. \:\)

it comes down to what you can afford/what you need it all for.

if the gun is just for turkey and you are ok with a pump them the 870 or the 835 are GREAT guns.

if you want open i up to autos then the mossberg 935 and the stoeger 2000 are awsome for the price! i got the stoeger last year and LOVE IT. you can find it with 2 barrels (one for turkey one for duck) as well as 2 stocks (pistol grip and field grip) for $400 which is a steal to me...

I strongly recommend the Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag. I took two turkeys this spring and both over 50 yards with Winchester Supreme 3.5" Turkey Shot #5

I have a Browning and a Remingon specialty turkey guns. I like the Remington a little better. I use nothing but 3.5 shells with #5's. Here is the link for the Remington gun: http://www.remington.com/products/firear...turkey_camo.asp

The only problem with shooting 3.5" shells in a pump is that you really have to rack the pump back further then you usually do and many times you will get the ejected shell hung up in the receiver screwing up the chance of a quick follow-up shot.

All the above will get the job done, but a "turkey gun" is not needed. You can take your squirrel gun you have now, use a good high powered 2 3/4" or 3" shell,(same as you use to hunt squirrels) then learn to call the big tom in and wait till he get within a 35-40 yard range before pulling the trigger and you'll do just fine.
Aim for the neck where the feathers start .
