For the last 15 years I/we have used an 11/87 and that puppy is super reliable. Keep the gas piston clean, change the O-ring yearly, and change the recoil spring about every 5 years IF you use the gun a lot and you will have one of the best autos made. NONE of those things to do is mandatory but it is preventative maintenance. The gun is soft on the shoulder too.
For the last 6 years I have been using a Benelli M-1 and it runs everything I put through it without a hitch. Maintenance is less than the 11-87 because there is no gas piston to keep clean.
Either one would work from clays to geese and would serve you well.
