I recommend to everyone a Mossberg 500 series. It's about as reliable and simple as they come. I carried a 590 military model in Mogadishu, and it
served me very well. I own one now, as well as a 500 mariner.
Go find a fish and game or gun club, and start practicing. You may even get into clay birds like I did, and shoot once a week.
At worst, you've got a new hobby... I will warn you though, my wife has gotten VERY good with the 500, and is quite competitive... Fair warning.
Yeah, saw your edit here... the 870 is a pretty basic gun too, very reliable... I'm personally just partial to Mossberg. I'd skip the fancy 590...
It's your first firearm. KISS=Keep It Simple Stupid. (no offense, just was drilled into my . as a kid).
EDIT: added last paragraph
