Hunting on a budget and need a gun that can meet all your hunting needs? A pump shotgun may be exactly what you are looking for.
If money's tight, or you are the kind of hunter who likes to keep it simple, consider getting one gun that will cover all your small and big game hunting needs.
This video is definitely food for thought when you want to get one gun that will serve you well in marsh, forest and field. A pump shotgun, like the Mossberg 500, is a great American-made choice. With a wide variety of smooth and rifled barrels, at a very reasonable cost, you will have one gun that can do it all.
My first gun I bought after I left home for the Army was a pump shotgun, and it is the same one I use today for a lot of my hunting. I bought a package that came with a-28 inch shotgun barrel and a 20 inch rifled barrel for the very reasons described in this video. With this one gun, I could hunt waterfowl, deer, bear and any other game you could imagine.
I still love a good pump gun to this day. They are super reliable and have a classic feel to them. Even though I have other higher-end shotguns I still take my first pump out from time to time for duck or grouse. It's like reuniting with an old and dependable friend.
