I've been in the market for a good pump action 12 gauge for a while and I've narrowed my choices to 3. I will be buying the field version of each of the guns because I prefer a wooden stock. My first selection is a the winchester SXP I like the low recoil and that the pump slides back when you shoot so yon just have to push forward and also as my name implies I'm a huge fan of winchester. My next choice is a Remington model 870 I like the quality of these guns and the historical significance of it and it being used by military and police personnel. Third and final choice is the mossberg model 500 I like it for the military and police use and like the price and in Canada (where I live) it is the cheaper choice. I'm personally thinking SXP but looking for suggestions and advice.
