I have been turkey hunting for 3 years now and i want to invest in a good solid turkey gun but not looking to spend $1000 either.. 500 and less would be perfect. I am also left handed. Any advice or suggestions?

Struts probably right...I'm a new turkey hunter myself but I do like my Remington...

Speaking as a lefty, I generally find the cheaper, more basic models more left friendly. Shotguns are easy to deal with anyway because you never really see Monte Carlo cheekpieces and ejection almost never bites you on them.

Remember though...

There is a reason I call my Mossberg a "Slapberg". It kicks like a mule but it will reach out and touch a toikey if you find the right load/shell it likes. \:\)

Get a Browning Bps they eject shells out the bottom not the right side and the saftey is on top also so it is easier than reaching under to push it off. They are just designed better for either left or right handed shooters in my opinon

3 inch shells are plenty for turkeys. I shoot a Winchester 1300 with 3 inch #5 shells. I have put it up against many Moss. 835 and usually out patterns them. Most turkey guns out there will work, you just have to find the right shell and shot # that performs with the gun.
