Looking for a new scatter gun

I have been getting an itch for a new shotgun lately. Im curious what some of yall would recommend.

It will be used for mainly hunting. (pheasant, quail, duck, maybe a turkey every now and again)

My only requirements are: 12ga, at least a 3in
Im not concerned with a choke, because I will probably end up chopping 4-5in off the barrel anyways, and having the barrel tapped and threaded.
I tend to shoot better with a shorter gun

I use my dad's Mossberg 500 and it's one of the nicest shotguns I've ever used.
A Remington model 870 is a fine gun too.

If you could have an opportunity to try both, then you'd be able to choose which one you like better.

Try the Mossberg then.

I've never been able to pump out 4 rounds faster than with mine.

I shot a mossberg yesterday, I really didnt care for it.
My S&W is way smoother than the mossberg

Any specific model you recommend?
Looks like the purpose of the gun has changed though
I just found they are starting up a competitive shot gun team at my school

anybody shoot competitively???
