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.

Another vote for the Mossberg 835. With 3 1/2" #5's she packs a punch at both ends but you'll never notice when Mr. Tom is in front of you. I put a limbsaver on mine and it helps with the recoil.
