    Hey Guys
    Im looking for a pump shotgun for my friend i go to college with. he doesnt have a big price range, just looking for his first shotgun something he could take out to the range for a day of fun and then take it out and hunt. someting around 500. I believe he is a certified lock smith and can get safes super cheap or at leat a whole hell of a lot cheaper than you can get them in any of the online sales and other places. maybe you could talk to him about getting a better gun if he can give you a decent deal. I'll get his email for you guys. oh yeah any good used gun dealers that you no of

    thanks everyone CA

    Check out the pawn shops. I think he might find a used 870 for $350 or less. Built like a tank and will always be able to get clsoe to his money back when he want to trade up. Or just keep it for a hunter. good luck

    Humboldt - there are a couple options in this thread. If they do not work out he shouldn't hesitate to buy a new 870 express. With proper care (probably even without proper care) it will last a lifetime as a field gun for him. If he gets serious about trap he will probably want to spend the money for a dedicated trap gun.
