Several of my coworkers have IAC Hawks for HD and general purpose shotguns - nothing wrong with them. They can be had in a couple different configurations - the most common here is the 982 with Ghost Ring Sight for around 170.00+/-. Every one that I have shot has been excellent and I would have no issues relying on one for hd.
Maverick 88's will also fit the bill nicely if on a budget.
