Hey yall Im looking for some help picking out a new shotgun for waterfowl and turkey hunting.  Ive been considering the Browning A5 and Maxus which are a little out of my price range. Would it be wise to spend the money on a Browning or does anyone have any other suggestions that would be good reliable gun at a good price. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

That's not bad advice. Check out whatever floats your boat, and then figure out which one shoulders best and points the most smoothly. Good luck!

Everyone is going to tell you to get the gun they have because it works well for them. However that does not mean it will fit you, it may work well but if it don't shoulder/fit right thats no good. Go shoulder a bunch and see what feels best for you and have a person fit you if possible.

This was more so meant to just get a basis and see what people liked and how well things fed and so on.  Somewhat new to shotguns, grew up around more rifles and hanguns so trying to transition without making a stupid purchase.  Thank you for all the advice and yall have a good day and happy hunting.

Maxus has had ongoing trigger issues and A5 is too new for any kind of meaningful verdict. If you're leaning towards Browning, I'd suggest looking at the Silver Hunter. Excellent gun, cheaper than the above mentioned, available in 3 1/2" chamber and comes in camo, wood&blue and synthetic black. Very simple and reliable design, but like others have wisely suggested, see what fits YOU. See what you think:

Franchi Affinity is a phenominal gun for the price around 800 bucks, its made in the benelli factory, it features the benelli Inertia driven system, the recoil spring is around the mag tube for easy cleaning/maintenance. I have both the 12 and 20, never had a hiccup in over 2000 rounds. My primary gun is a Benelli M2 in Max4 and they have a very similar feel and the same vent rib. I would not feel under gunned in the least bit with a franchi in the duck blind.
