The position of the safeties on the guns should be something to consider

Randy. No offense meant by this, but it has to be said.

Asking which is best between these 2 shotguns is like asking a room full of construction workers which brand makes the best 1 ton truck. In all likelyhood, you will get a d@mn near even split in your answers, at best. Or worst case scenario, you will get flying fists and blood on the floor.

If you are posting to determine which would suit you best, I can not answer that, as I am not you. My advice to you is to find 2 or more friends that own 500s and 870s, and ask them if you can go out with them and shoot their shotguns. Offer to buy the shells, and in most cases they will probably say yes. Then you can make an informed decision as to what will work best for you, and what won't.

I own both shotguns, and I have a slight preference towards the 870. I am a shorter, left handed shooter, and the 870's ergonomics are more suited to me. Just MHO, YMMV.

^^^^^ If you can't shoot each one, at least handle each one. Whatever feels more comfortable/ natural is the one.

I've owned an 870 since 1992. Handled the Mossbergs, shot them and enjoyed it. I'm glad I own my 870.
