Recommended Shotgun Brands

By Chuck Hawks and the Guns and Shooting Online Staff


One of the most frequent e-mail questions we get is, "What brand of shotgun should I buy for hunting?" In an effort to help, I wrote "Recommended Shotguns," which names the specific models that I personally prefer in a number of categories. But that article is based entirely on my opinion.

In order to get a wider range of opinions, I asked various members of the Guns and Shooting Online staff to name up to three of their favorite BRANDS of shotguns. To keep it within reason (everybody would like a Grulla, Purdy, Boss, or Holland & Holland, I am sure), I limited the price range to $4000 or less.

Here are the results. Note that each person's list is in alphabetical order, not order of preference.

Terry Hart (Contributing Editor): CZ, H&R, T/C.

Chuck Hawks (Managing Editor): AYA, Browning, Ruger.

Rocky Hays (Gunsmithing Consultant): Benelli, Beretta, Mossberg.

Gordon Landers (Technical Assistant): Ruger.

David Tong (Writer): Benelli, Beretta, Remington.

Randy Wakeman (Senior Contributing Editor): Beretta, Browning.
