Well I killed my first deer this year. I used a Rossi 12 ga slug gun, nice weapon. Now I want to upgrade. I want a cantilever mount on my next gun. Is it worth the extra money for the 11-87 or is the 870 a good deer gun. I would love the semi auto as it should be the last gun I would ever have to buy for deer hunting. Just checking to see what you Remington shooters thought. I am also open to other makes and models, I am trying to find the most accurate shooter I can find. Without having to take out a loan.
