Default How much does your HD shotgun hold in the tube?

I know a lot of people worry about how much their HD shotguns can hold. So I was just curious, how much can yours hold in the pipe? It seems like many people are straying away from the traditional 5+1 capacity in favor of mag extensions and longer barrels/mags for 7+1 and even 8+1. Do any of you lose any sleep over how much your HD gun holds?

My shotgun holds 6 but HD is a handgun thang for me. More bullets , only one hand is needed to fire it with control.

8 plus 1 mossy 590a1 marine coat finish. We are new to our relationship, about a year. Like all the other relationships I've been in I know how to pull her trigger and she kicks me every time. In a word, bliss.

The only shotgun I have holds 2+1, and is a 16 gauge, but it's not really a home defense firearm for me. Instead I rely on either my Ruger SR9c, Springfield Mil-Spec 1911A1, or Kahr CM9 (which is always in my pocket at all times).

5+1 I am in the market for a magazine extension. Mainly for when I'm out shooting it. More shooting, less reloading! If I have to use 6 or more rounds of 00 buck, I think I have bigger problems, like the apocalypse.
