good goose/turkey gun

I'm new to the whole waterfowl hunting arena so I really don't know what I'm looking for. I need to get a good goose gun that I could also use for turkey if needed. I'm thinking semi-auto with a 3 1/2" chamber but what is a good gun that meets my rquirements?

Life is like a coin, you can spend it anywhere you like, but you can only spend it once.

Re: good goose/turkey gun

The Benelli Nova 3 1/3 is a pump. It is my go-to Goose and turkey shotgun. Reasons........does not jam......good camo........good fit......3 1/2" with multiple chokes but I still had to buy a Turkey x-tra full.....

Re: good goose/turkey gun

I have a mossburg 535 3.5inch pump that came as a combo. Have the 28 inch waterfowl/feild barrel and a 22 inch turkey barrel w/ turkey choke. I love mossburgs they have never failed me just clean them after use and they will last you a lifetime.

Re: good goose/turkey gun

Anybody know anything about the new Remington 1187 supermag waterfowl? It's got an adjustable LOP which might favor us little guys.

Re: good goose/turkey gun

Be sure to also consider the Browning Gold 12 3.5. I have used for both geese & turkey. Gas semi's cushion recoil better than inertias or those hard rockin pumpers!! LOL

Re: good goose/turkey gun

Thanks and Beagler, which one are you buying me? Love to have that Beretta, but I don't know about the Benelli. My deputy has one and it doesn't hit anything! (Readin' this Eric?)

Re: good goose/turkey gun

I was looking for the same type of gun (turkey and waterfowl). I went with the Benelli M2 and I'm very happy with it. No problem dropping turkeys or decoying geese without the overkill 3.5" pounding.
