    No such animal as a good Mossturd autoloader.

    At $300 you'll be hard pressed to find a good pump gun let alone a semi.

    I've heard really good things about the Beretta 390! If you need a 3" gun then an 11-87 will work fine, but my 11-87 Supermag didn't cycle 2 3/4" shells very well so I sold it to buy a new gun. If you have to, then buy used by all means. I would just look over the gun really well and maybe have a gun smith look at it before the final purchase.

    Well, if you do not need a 3'' mag. then you will find A LOT of very good autos out there.Countless Browning A-5's, Remington 11's,1148's,1100's, 1187's, I also see a few of those Ithaca SKB autos as well as the Ithaca 51's (not too sure about those though). I picked up a excellent used Browning B-80 (Beretta made) for my son for a song. If weight is not a problem for you, I've see magnum A-5 Brownings out there too,both FN and Miroku made. Lots of fine older guns that are sitting all lonesome in closets. I also would save a bit more cash so you have room to move if you have to.That is what I've done and would do again.

    Thanks for the imput Phil et al, I have been looking at the 11-87's, I guess my definition of cheap would be in the $300 range, so far I have not been able to find any 11-87's in that range, and all of the 1100's I am finding are chambered in 2 3/4 inch and would really like a 3 inch chamber. My hunting buddy just got a Stoeger 3500, and the Stoeger 3000 is only $400 and change new. So would you go for a cheap new Stoeger or a well used 11-87?

    I like the 11-87. I work at a trap range and have seen too many misfires with berettas, all same model, (not sure which model) different guns. My advice is too find a gun that fits you well, I'm not aware of a bad semi auto, yet.

    I would look for a used Beretta 390.Those are hard to come by, because people hang onto them.

    I would settle for a used Remington 11-87.

    I don't know what your definition of "cheap" is, but I just picked up a used Browning Gold for $500 which was a great find.
