Pump is most versatile and the best first purchase. But later own the o/u and sxs both are worth having as well.

No problem, It is a great gun and most people's first shotgun purchase. You will be happy with it I am sure. But if you like shotguns all the ones in the game are actually really good and worth buying.

12 ga pump is the best because it has a scope, also it holds 6 shells, compared to the 2 shells of other 12 ga shotguns.

Depends on your use really. The pump is great for mid-large game since it can substitute for a rifle as a slugger with a decent scope.

On the other hand, if you are a wingshooter or rushing rabbits, the SxS or O/U give a faster second shot compared to cycling the pump.

Also there are some missions you can complete with the pump-action, however there are others that require SxS or the O/U

Depends what you do in game, if you do a lot of missions get the 12ga pump as used in a lot of mission packs. Both good shotguns.

Thanks so much, but I'm wondering what the diff b/w maisto & pump? apart from the capacity(6/3), how about their fast bursts and reloading speed?
You know, considering the cost I cannot afford both.
