Mossberg 930 vs Stoeger m3000

I'm looking to upgrade from the pump to a semi auto shotgun. Don't want a really expensive one, in college and on a budget. But I looked at these two guns and read good reviews on both. Anybody shoot these guns? If so please tell me how you like them or if they are worth it. Will use mostly for ducks, dove, and clays. Also would consider a used gun

Tri-Star
Another cheap semi-auto you should consider is the Tri-Star. Tri-Star has been a big name in Europe for a while and are slowly making their way into the U.S. The reviews have been great on it and I watched a video where they actually loaded the gun then froze it solid. Once it was frozen and had a good sheet of ice on it they fired all rounds on it. After the video I bought one for my wife and it has not disappointed me one bit! We put it through hell in the marsh and it has been a great gun and hasn't given us any problems. Best of all it was only 349.00. I figured for that price it was a worth a shot and so far I'm glad I spent the money..

Look for a used Remington 1100. I have one that I have been hunting with for 35 years. The least recoil of any gun I own besides my .22. I do however prefer to hunt ducks with my Remington 870. Brand new the 870 is cheap, but a very solid gun. The pump keeps me from wasting shells. Keep a look out on the classified and check the pawn shops too for that 1100. In my opinion, it will do you better than a a cheaper new gun.

Stoeger
i own a stoeger m2000 and my brother owns the 3500. only difference is his will shoot the 3 1/2 shells. he's ten years old and will shoot the 12 ga stoeger all day long, very little recoil. many people say a stoeger is basically a knockoff benelli. with that said, i love my stoeger and wouldnt trade it for anything. i mostly shoot clays and dove and duck hunt when i can. there have been times when i have gone months without cleaning it (not intentionally) and used it repeatedly without ever having a problem. you will not regret getting the stoeger. it is every bit as good as a benelli in my experience.
