The Mossberg 930 is getting popular as a starter gun, you can have it ready to run for under $550 I believe.
Of course we're not talking about opening up loading ports, extended safeties, changing the beads to fibers. These options are all nice, but until you get out and shoot a few matches, you won't know what works for YOU.
A $200 Rem 870 w/ a Nordic tube will even work fine as long as you spend a little time practicing running a pump gun. That will give you a chance to get to a few matches, try out some other guys gear, and find out what YOU like.
Thanks for the advice. My initial thought was just go with an inexpensive pump like an H&R but then I was reading about semi-autos so I started getting ahead of myself. Lol
I would follow BPR's line of thinking at least until you know you want to stay in the game, and maybe, just maybe, you'll find out you're one heck of a pumpgunner!
No one should expect to jump-in and play at the top of the game even at a local level. So just get out there are enjoy the game, no matter what equipment you have.
I have no expectations to play at the top of the game. I honestly don't expect to be really competitive for a while. There are a lot of good shooters around here that have been in the game a long time. I'm just wanting to go out and have some fun and learn as much as I can.
