    What's a good all-around gun that I can use for deer, turkey, and some larger game?

    I use my Mossberg 500 pump for all the above.

        benelli pump the best pump i own great all wether gun easy to take down and put back together and the recoil reducer option is excellent for big loads like turkey loads, buck shot or slug for deer.I personally have put over 25000 rounds through mine everything from 9 shot dove rounds to 000 buck. as for larger game than whitetail i would go with a rifle 243 or greater more stopping power and penetration for large game with thicker skin. GOOD LUCK OUT THERE

          A 12ga. is good for all those applications, with the right load.

            223. It might be hard to shoot a turkey with it but it will bring down a deer.

                seeing as you want to hunt both deer and turkey you'll need a shotgun with probably .12 gauge as a safe bet. Then you'll need to buy some quality slugs to shoot with them.

                    I'd suggest the 835/935 mossbergs(pump/semi). Both will shoot up to the 3.5in shells and WILL take down ANYTHING in North America(limited range though). The 835(I have)has a "ported barrel" which reduces recoil, the 935(auto, reduces too)not sure about the barrel though(don't have, yet). That and a "good" slip on recoil pad you should'nt have any problems.
                    Good Luck and Good Hunting !

                            Try a benelli nova 12 ga. if you don't want to spend more than $400, but if you do try a benelli m2 if you don't shot 3.5" shells or sbe2 if you do. I have both the nova and m2 and I have hunted deer, turkey, doves, duck, geese, and coyotes with them. Won't trade my m2 for any other shotgun.
                            If you can hunt turkey with a rifle try a Ruger M77 in 30-06 or 7mm.

                              I agree with buck hunter I think the 870 is the best all around shotgun.

                                I understand the reason someone would pick the heavier bullets. However, heavier bullets cause greater recoil and will affect recovery time and may result...

                                I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....

                                Would you spend $900 for a Ruger 10/22 to shoot 300yds ? A little over 1" at 100 and a little 0ver 6" at 300yds. Lapua and SK ammo used....

                                I like the Remington Golden Saber Black Belt 147gr 9mm (not +P) and the 180gr in .40. Check out the statistics. Some LEO friends always suggest the heavy...
