I disagree. I have had a mossberg 500 and an 870 express. i prefer the 870 express. Very reliable.

To each his own. Some may have had problems with the 870, some may have not. I personally do not like it for my own reasons but I don't think you could really go wrong with one. Although I must say though, their quality has certainly dropped in the past of couple years. Your mileage may vary.

I have owned both the 500 and the 870. The 500 had pistol grips fore and aft and an 18 1/2" barrel with heat shield. I bought it with the slug barrel and wood stock also (maxi Combo). It handled very well in short and long form without a hiccup. The 870 has the Knoxx stock and a super Turkey choke. Again, works very well and never a goof. With these two choice I dont think you can make a mistake....I wish I still had the Winchester 1100 gas op I traded in way back when.

I own a 500. She is a bad girl! Everyone stares when I take her to the range. I'm looking to add either the Stoeger double defense over under, or the double defense coach gun. Any thoughts or info I should know about?

I have an 870 and it's a good gun,have had no problems with it since I got it about 2 years ago.But as a rule of thumb,the 870's,with their steel recievers,classic safety and debris guard/loading gate are really meant to be a woodsmans gun and right at home firing slugs all day long,but also doubles as a great house/defensive gun.The Mossberg 500 is the opposite-with it's light aluminum reciever,open loading chamber and easy thumb safety,it's main purpose is to be a defensive/LEO gun that doubles as a good woodsman's gun.
