    Curious what semi auto you have, and why it isn't ejecting shells. I had that problem with a Browning A5 20 gauge, the internal extractor broke off, so when the shell came back it wasn't in proper alignment to eject and would jam. I disassembled the action, and found the broken extractor. One call to Gun Parts Corporation and I had the new extractor for less than $15.00 with shipping and a wait of 5 days. That was 4 years and 2500 rounds ago. I find that if the gun is comfortable to shoot, then the small investment in time to fix it is worth more than buying something that you have to get used to over again.

    i have a 40 year old ithaca pump and it has not messed up on me yet but i live in georgia and are not used to a bunch of ducks flying into a pond at one time. all i had was a pump and the ducks would be coming into the pond and i couldnt hardly pump it fast enough.like i said i have no trouble with my ithaca but i would prefer a semi auto for waterfowl b/c it shoots faster.

    I prefer pump but I like semi autos too. My duck gun is a Benelli Super Nova and I love it. Its super reliable and easy to clean.

    save the money,keep your gun and take it to a gunsmith and tell them to put a new extractor in.

    Its more personal preference, I can make pretty quick follow ups with my BPS pump but I do like some of the newer semi autos are nice shooting guns, but every gun jams just some more than others. I've found some loads jam more in my gun than others it could be your ammo not your gun.

    I would get a pump. A pump like the remington 870 just doesnt stop shooting. Plus you can pump one pretty fast with some practice and patience. We have gotten dirt in the ejector, popped it out, and it didnt even slow it down, it just kept going.

    Automatic for quicker fallow ups. I would go with a Remington 11-87 Sportsman. I have never had mine jam on me (nock on wood). And it was ony 550 dollars.

    Try pump. It don't hurt to know how to operate an automatic and a pump.

    RebeccaAnn,

    Stick with the semi-auto. Just make sure the stock fits you. Many are made in women's stock size. Remington is one that comes to mind, not sure of the others. Semi-auto's have less recoil and you don't have to move to cycle in another round. A good thing if you Turkey hunt and don't want to be seen.

    I shoot semi-auto's almost exclusively. The trick is with a new semi-auto you cannot shoot the cheap low brass ammo. I shot a buddies new Stoeger 2000 yesterday, it is built with the Benelli action in a Stoeger gun. It is inertia driven and did extremely well with high brass dove loads. We only had one jam and that was with a low brass #8 after about 500 rounds. If we had bothered to clean it or oil it before the jam it may not have happened. It is well worth the less than $400 price tag.

    If money is not that much of a concern Beretta, Remington, and Bennelli are the way to go.
