    Hello everyone, I think it's time I add a 12 gauge to the collection, I am between a Mossberg 590 (would be putting the Magpul furniture on it) and a Winchester SXP Defender (either the marine or coyote finish), can anyone chime in on which one is the way to go or provide any recommendations? I like shooting skeet for fun (not comp.) and would like to hunt with it so I am of course also looking into different barrels.

    I’ve only had one experience with the Winchester and mine was garbage

    if you want an all around gun and to shoot skeet, I’d buy a Mossberg 500

    Every Mossberg I’ve ever shot just work, plain and simple.

    have a 835 and Maverick 88 now, both work every time.

    won several turkeys with the 835.

    Between those, Mossberg. Between Mossberg and a Remington 870 Express that goes for $200 at the gun show, I'd go with Remington.
