    I said the 870, they are cheep and there are lots of parts for them. But most anything on you list will work.

    I have a 590. Good gun. Never had a problem with it.

    Anything that you feel comfortable with,and goes bang. Mossy,Remington, whatever. I happen to have two Mossy\'s, got a good price for them,and I jumped on them,but if they were Remingtons,I\'d be satisfied also.

    They should all work for you. Which one do you really want. ;)

    I have the 500 and 870. Both have functioned flawlessly for me.

    I didn\'t know if maybe you already had a favorite or not.

    If you can \"try them on\" then do that and see which one fits the best and handles the best for you. All of them you listed should function fine. The 870 probably has the most parts and kits available followed by the Mossy options. The other options have stuff available as well, just not quite as much.

    I use the 590 due to the safety location.

    All good choices but I\'d pick a Benelli Nova Special Purpose 18.5\" barrel with ghost ring sights. Here\'s why: http://www.alpharubicon.com/leo/benellinovajb.htm

    Besides it just plain looks black shotgun evil cool.

    My Mossberg 835 will take 3 inch. 00 Buck in 3 inch is brutal.

    I usually use 2 in my 835 and my 590. Once in a while a shoot the 3 1/2 in the 835 just to feel the power.
