NEW XD5.25 competition - what kind of shotgun for 3 gun competition shooting ?

So excited to have received my new XD 5.25  9mm.  I recently completed the NRA Basic Pistol Instructor class and qualifying in the shooting was my biggest concern.  This new gun (And Kim Heath's) class made it easy.    I think I'm hooked on this sport since I now have, 4 Springfield 9mm. 
Looking forward to a basic rifle class in the spring.   I just purchased an AR and I really need some very basic training on it.


I want to purchase a shotgun for 3 gun.  Any suggestions on what I should look for?

I have a Remington 1100, but have only shot it a couple of times.  We went to a couple local 3 gun matches just for fun.  The only difficulty I had was remembering to put more butt behind it as it recoils a little more than my AR.  I would get stovepipes with the empty shells, but once I leaned into it a little more and held it like a shotgun, and not like an AR, it worked great. I know you can get a simple Remington 870 at Cabela's or Bass Pro on sale for a song a few times a year.  I think the biggest decision you're going to have to make is how much you want to spend and if you want semi-auto or pump.


GREAT Women's Tac Pants!
