I am going to be getting my PAL soon( same as an FAC). What do you guys think would make a good choice for a first gun to buy. This actually wouldn't be my first gun, I already own a .22 and single shot 12 gauge. I was originally going to get a Rem 700 but centerfire ammo is so damn expensive so I am leaning towards another shotgun. I was thinking about an inexpensive 12 gauge pump. I've heard good things about the Remington 870 and the Winchester 1300. I handled an 870 at a local gun store and I really liked the weight and feel of it, felt well constructed. I want one I can use for skeet too, so I am looking at a short barreled model. I am 5"11 185lbs and I have no troubles with the recoil from my single shot 12 gauge so I am sure that I would be comfortable with the 870 since it is heavier than the single shot. I also notice that the 870 has alot of availible accessories. I also like the syntheic black stocks over the wood stocks. So, basically I am down to the 870 or the 1300. Unless you guys want to throw in some more suggestions I'd like to hear your opinions on these firearms.

Save you money and move to the land of the free. Where you can use guns to defend yourself and not go to jail.
