    Im moving to VA next year up in the mountains by myself. EVERYONE has some type of gun at their home / in truck. Im 19 so i cant buy a handgun, but i think a shotgun would be fitting. Maybe a 12g of some sort? Any suggestions?

    remington 870 is probably the best all-around shotgun. we use it at work, i use it at home, everyone uses it to hunt...etc. if you want to be super cool, you could swap out the barrel with a shorter one so it's easier to maneuver in your home.

    I agree with REM 870 or MOSS 500....if you could spend a small fortune the BENELLI M4 would be SWEEEEEEET!!!

    Remmy 870 is a great solid shotgun, tested and reliable. Mossberg 500/590 also tested and reliable. For a Semi-auto, I have a Benelli M1 and a M3.

    Remington 870 is a classic, everyone has it, and they're great.

    That Mossberg 930 is also very..very nice, so I hear. Nearly identical to the FNH Auto, but half the price.

    I chose to be different, I have an FNH TPS, amongst many others for home defense. I like the sites and it points nicely, but it was expensive.

    Ha! we had those as breacher guns when I was in the Navy. Good little platforms except the 3 round capacity, but you can get a mag extension and get around that.

    why do you think you cant buy a handgun? i dunno about maryland but in most state you can buy a handgun at 18 in a private sale...you cant buy ammo from a FFL either unless you buy it for a rifle :p

    ive got a mossberg 500 it was 207$ out the door at walmart...they also had the maverick 88 for about 157$ +tax....i bought a Saiga 12 a while back its cool got it for 520$ OTD

    im wanting a KelTec KSG its got two 7round internal mags and one in the chamber for a total of 15 rounds...
