I've started this thread to talk about good inexpensive shotguns. I grew up on a farm where we used a mixture of relatively inexpensive shotguns. We had some old bolt action Mossbergs, a bolt action Savage and a single shot Ithaca. Over 40 years later, all of those shotguns still work, without a single failure. Within the past two years, I've purchased three new Mossberg Maverick 88's . I gave two away as Christmas presents to my sons and kept the other for myself. I purchased mine with a field barrel and then bought a kit from Brownells to add a 20" barrael and a higher capacity magazine. I switch barrels back and forth depending on whether I want to use the gun for home defense or hunting/clays. I haven't had a single issue with any of the three Maverick 88's. Are there other "good" shotguns out there that can be purchased at a reasonable price? What has been your experience with "cheap" guns that really are decent shotguns?
