I intend to begin the long arduous task of learning to hunt Turkeys this spring. I need suggestions on a good Turkey gun without breaking the bank. I appreciate any help you guys can be.

Mossberg 835,500,535 all do a good job as well as the Remington 870. All are good guns get a good choke and shell combo and any of them will be deadly.

I just bought a Mossberg 935 Magnum 26" incher in black for the exact same reason. Set me back ~$450 brand new. So far it spits out 3" shells like a charm. I haven't tried any 2 3/4 or 3 1/2 inchers yet. I look forward to getting it in the woods.

I just ordered a Mossberg 500 in their Grand Slam Turkey Series. Couldn't pass up that 320.00 price.

If you woulda shopped around a lil better you coulda done a lot better. Walmart, Academy, Bass Pro all those places you coulda gotten a 870 for right around $300 or under out the door. IMO the 870 is a much better made gun with a lot more aftermarket parts available, but whatever makes you happy.

winchester extended range and environmetals hevi-13 are good shells.
tru-glo strut stopper xtreme is a good choke that works good with those shells
