I jut picked up a 1988 Remington 11-87 in excellent cond for $385 with 22" & 26" barrels, needless to say after a thorough cleaning the other night I took it out yesterday and put 50 rounds through it and it was flawless. I have heard some negative reviews of the newer versions of the 11-87, but I can say that I am a proud and excited owner of an original model 11-87.

The 11-87s are fine weapons. I've fired several of them with 18 inch barrels and buck, and never had a problem.
One of my best friends switched over to a 20 ga 11-87 when got old enough that the recoil of his lightweight Browning O/U 12 ga got a little uncomfortable.
You couldn't pry that 11-87 out of his hands with a crowbar!
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
