Who doesn’t want a good shotgun? They’re great for hunting and more importantly, great for home defense. I’ve had a Remington 870 for years and it’s never let me down, I paid less than $200.00 for it ‘back in the day’ (the mid 1980’s).
But I know that prices have increased over the years and that’s why I mentioned the $700.00 & below dollar figure.
There are plenty of high-quality, affordable shotguns that may not have the bells and whistles of higher-priced options, but shoot straight and shoot often.
In short, they do everything a hunter, or target shooter expects without breaking the bank. Shotguns digest more shells in a season than most rifles will in a lifetime. They get knocked around in the uplands, splattered with mud in the marsh, and shot and shot and shot at the range.
A lot of people don’t like the idea of spending any more than necessary on a gun that has to take such abuse. In the video below, we’ll be talking about some of the best shotguns under $700!
This list of the best budget shotguns is for them—the practical among us, who will skip a frill here, or an engraved pheasant there in order to get the most bang for the buck.
