Stoeger. Or super black eagle 2. Or can go a little cheaper and get a Mossberg again or Remington.

Heard good things about the M2000,although I own a condor O/U and it is basically unusable junk. I carry a 28" barreled 835 with me and never had a problem with it,although it is pretty heavy.

The Stoeger is a great gun . My son has the semi. I hunt with a Mossberg 835.

I have the 835 and the only issue I have is the reach to the pump is a little too long for me. Have thought about going to an 870 or an automatic but may do nothing.

I've been toting around my 870 Super Magnum since the first year they came out. With all the new chokes out and the Hevishot #7 and Heavyweight #7 I am converting over and lightening my load so-to-speak and going with a 20 gauge. This gun is mainly for my daughter, but I'll be carrying it when she isn't hunting with me. It was between a Remington 11-87 and a Franchi Affinity. Due to a few things I went with the Remington. It is a little heavier - therefore less felt recoil for her. It was quite a bit cheaper leaving me money for a Truglo Strut Stopper Xtreme (SSX) choke, some shells, and still a little to go toward a Burris Fastfire III for it. And lastly parts are easy to come by for it if and when it ever needs them. From what I hear the Franchi might be a little difficult to get parts in a timely manner. If this thing performs as good as my son's 870 20 gauge with an Indian Creek choke tube shooting Hevishot #6 it will be wicked. I'm expecting it to actually perform a little better. The 870 and this 1187 are both lights out 40-45 yard guns every day of the week. I've killed a few over the years with my Super Magnum at the 50-55 yard mark. When I have the 20 - I won't be slinging pellets over the 45 yard mark.
