I've thinking about buying some semi auto shotguns for my 3 boys for xmas. I need help finding a decent one for 500-600. Primarily gunna be used for duck hunting but will be used for dove too.

I'd check out the Stoegers (pretty much a benelli). Just my .02, but I don't have any experience with Stoeger. Just something to look into.

Ive shot a semi stoeger once but kinda got a bad taste after a friend had a sxs and one of the barrels wouldnt fire. Customer survice wasn't good. According to him.

I would say a Mossberg 930 is a good choice.

Was thinking the 930 but all i seen in their web site was extended chokes and thought those are for turkey. Do they come with other chokes. Will check franci

We've been using pumps for everything and they've wanted one in the family for a few years now. I like going big for christmas. The looks on their faces is the best. Hanging lights with the wife is 2nd.

CDNN is blowing out the Winchester SX3 Composite for $720. It's a little more than you mentioned, but for that price, it's worth a look!

Beretta 3901 - Black Synthetic for hunting and will run you about $599.99.

Built on the legendary Beretta 390 action.

that super X3 is worth every penny and then some. I have 2 of them now and really enjoy them.

Great idea if you can find one... Another excellent choice is the Franchi Affinity... Made in Italy, essentially is a re-branded Benelli.. Same recoil system, excellent warranty (7 years)..
