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.

Back to the blue oval: 08 F350 FX4 CCLB - DPF/EGR delete - Spartan tuner - S&B CAI - 4 in DP to 5 in SP

First truck: Early 99 F350 SC LB ZF6 4WD - SOLD

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???
