I'm planning on getting a new pump shotgun (my first) and right now I'm kind of in a battle between the Benelli Nova and the Mossberg 500... I like the look and features of the nova, but the mossbergs I hear can really take a beating. I also like that the mossberg guns come with ported barrels. I'm kind of curious how easy it is to get barrels ported. I'd imagine it isn't too involved and can easily be done with a trip to gunsmith?
Anyway, anyone out there who have tried both of these shotguns have any opinions that can help me?
For reference, I plan to do mostly skeet and sport shooting with the gun, but may get into hunting later.
