I have an 870 with a 23" barrel on it. For the past few months I have been thinking about an 18.5" barrel and it *could* be fit into my budget but if I DON'T need it, then I don't want to get it. SO I turn to the awesome people you are, yes or no? Clearing corners and all aside, what would my "new" advantages be? In a perfect world, of course I would go with the 18.5", but is it necessary? Thanks guys as always!
