Downsouth -- nice A1!

If u need reliability, get a Mossberg. If you prefer the look and feel, get the Remington 870 but DON'T rely on it to work for you unless you've broken it in and practiced with thousands of rounds.

You shouldn't depend on any gun strait out of the box.

Trusted 870, has never had so much as a hiccup.

I Disagree on what you said about the 870.

Like I said. A friend of mine has one he shoots 100 rounds every Sunday has had it for about 3 years and has never cleaned it, keeps it in his truck tool box it never has a problem of any kind. Like the ak of shotguns I would say. I have had mine for as long as I can remember,with not a single failure to feed, jam ,miss fire or any thing at all. It has bin perfect and flawless since the minuet I unboxed it.

I have been happy with my Mossberg 500 since about 1995; somebody else had it before then and sold it (after putting some serious miles on it). It came with a fixed choke 28" barrel for hunting, which i did. I usually keep the more recently aquired 18.5" cylinder bore (open choke) barrel on it now for home defense. I also swapped out some black plastic furniture (went with a full buttstock with pistol grip) for the worn wooden furniture and added a sidesaddle shell holder for an extra six shells on hand. It is the firearm i am most familiar with and would be the first i would grab if awakened; i figure it would get me to the safe and the SKS & pistols (and something bullet-resistant to use as cover).

If i feel the urge to kill some birds or an up-close swamp donkey, it takes about a minute to change the barrel and another thirty seconds to put a pencil in the ammo tube to "plug" it down to bird-legal capacity.


Don't have any good pics.

Old ass shotgun + ammo on the way to go dove hunting, $100; still having it many years and many, many rounds later in great running condition, priceless to me.

edit* I later ditched that stupid sling. I don't need anything getting hung-up and making a racket in a serious situation.

Same with the 870 very easy and fast to change the barrel. Bottom line is like I said the 870 or the 500
