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.
