I love my Browning Gold Hunter 3 1/2". It shoots everything from the lightest dove loads to the heaviest goose loads with nary an issue. Extremely versatile gun. up

My Beretta AL390 Silver Mallard is by far the best shotgun I have ever owned especially when you consider I got it used for $400ish and I have owned some that cost more than $3K ; Its synthetic stocked, gas operated, easy shooting and bomb proof.

The guy who had it before me was a duck guide that had it for years with a steady diet of 3" magnum steel for ducks and a lot of dove loads as well and he had never once cleaned this gun; it still functioned flawlessly but it took HOURS to clean the internals and it was back in business.

This is the same gun I shot skeet with in college and after putting a confirmed 5,000rnds of trap/skeet loads through it I sent it off to Beretta for them to check everything before we headed to San Antonio for the College Nationals trap & skeet tournament.

They sent it back with a letter saying.......

"We have inspected your shotgun and find that all parts are in spec and correctly timed; in short there is nothing in need of replacement or repair."

Love my Beretta Outlander. Never had a jam or hangup.

My brother owns the Mossberg 930 and it is a heck of a gun for the price.

Of course you can get carried away with it and spend thousands, it all depends on what you want.

I've been considering a Beretta Outlander for that same purpose. It seems to have a the right mix of quality, price, and "not made in Turkey," no one else seems to achieve.

Spend a little more and go get a good O/U. You will save a lot more money in the long run by not being able to take that third shot that will probably miss anyway.

Beretta A300, or as previously mentioned, Mossberg 930. Both have served me well and both made in USA.

I bought a Remington 1187 Premier Light Contour when I was 16 to dove hunt with, and it has been an outstanding shotgun.

Mine is wood and I paid $350 for it (used) back in the 90s. Other than needing an o-ring replacement ($0.50) one time, it has worked great.

For the money, the Rem model 1100 is hard to beat. You can eventually wear one out. I did. The mechanism has weak points, which I eventually found, but I ran a ton of ammo through it before it started spitting parts. Probably more ammo than most of you will ever shoot.

And, gas guns are messy critters. I eventually sold my sick 1100 and bought a Rem 11 - based on the Browning humpback. Never need to clean a recoil operated shotgun.

I went duck hunting years ago, down in South Louisiana. The guides barely spoke English, preferring Cajun French. Every last one of them had a type of that Humpback shotgun. Rusty, grimy, and often used as a boat paddle, the guides told me (I think) that the guns never quit working. Mine was made in 1948. Still working.
