Same basic shotgun here as well... The good ol' Mossberg 500.

I got my Winchester 1300 Defender in 1986 for $179.99, and it was my first 'new' gun. It is the 5-round magazine model, with 18" bbl. About ten years ago or so, I scored a used 28" Winchoke barrel for it. I have four tubes for it, including a Skeet one.

Paid $189 for a Maverick 88 12 ga at Academy.
This is a no-frills, basic shotgun assembled in Eagle Pass, TX by Americans.
The gun shares a large number of parts with the legendary Mossy 500.
Solid and very reliable - ran everything you can imagine thru it with zero issues.
I'd trust this thing when the heat is on - tough as a ball peen hammer.

Back when Wal Mart wanted to pull guns out of some of their stores I went to one and they had a 12ga 870 Supermag (3 1/2") on sale at one of those stores for $199. At that time Remington had a rebate going for $50 off a Supermag. I sent it in and got the $50 back so my brand new 870 cost me $149. Have hunted waterfowl and turkey with it and it has performed well. Not sure I have the shoulder anymore for the 3 1/2" shells after rotator cuff surgery a couple years ago.

My very first shotgun was a Savage Model 220 in 28 gauge at Christmas, 1956. Still have it and it still works just fine.

In high school I bought a "Red Letter" Winchester Model 37 in .410 from a friend for $20. Still have it and it still works just fine.

20 gauge, SxS, Victor Sarasqueta, I paid $250 in the early 70's. Originally, it had 28" barrels and felt unbalanced, so I had a gunsmith shorten the barrels to 22" to make my own "coach" gun. Now I love it, fun to shoot.

Ithaca

I have an old Ithaca 20 gauge pump...model 37. It is 'cheap' because my Father left it to me when he passed. It is light and has an action as smooth as silk. I knew very little about Ithaca guns before I acquired this one. It has sentimental value, but I do take it into the woods as it has plenty of scratches and signs of use. My dad probably killed hundreds of rabbits and squirrels with it over many years.
I have to down vote the Mossberg 500. It was not a BAD shotgun really, but it rattled like crazy when I walked through the woods or got fidgety in the treestand. Those rails rattled. I am not sure what fix others applied to it to stop that. It was one of the few guns that I was glad to let go of.

Here is a picture of my 500 after I refinished it and built it how I wanted it:
