    I know a lot of people worry about how much their HD shotguns can hold. So I was just curious, how much can yours hold in the pipe? It seems like many people are straying away from the traditional 5+1 capacity in favor of mag extensions and longer barrels/mags for 7+1 and even 8+1. Do any of you lose any sleep over how much your HD gun holds?

    My shotgun holds 6 but HD is a handgun thang for me. More bullets , only one hand is needed to fire it with control.

    8 plus 1 mossy 590a1 marine coat finish. We are new to our relationship, about a year. Like all the other relationships I've been in I know how to pull her trigger and she kicks me every time. In a word, bliss.

    The only shotgun I have holds 2+1, and is a 16 gauge, but it's not really a home defense firearm for me. Instead I rely on either my Ruger SR9c, Springfield Mil-Spec 1911A1, or Kahr CM9 (which is always in my pocket at all times).

    5+1 I am in the market for a magazine extension. Mainly for when I'm out shooting it. More shooting, less reloading! If I have to use 6 or more rounds of 00 buck, I think I have bigger problems, like the apocalypse.

    Mossberg 500. It holds 5 in the tube. I can't imagine needing more than that in the house.

    I love mine too! The only problem I've had with it is that it does not like Federal 16 gauge ammunition, but it absolutely loves Fiocchi 16 gauge ammunition. It's rather funny, because the Federal is a higher brass shell than the Fiocchi. I do not like to shoot anything, but the Fiocchi, because the stock has a slight crack in it, which I wish wasn't there, but it doesn't suprise me since mine dates back to the 1950's I think.

    How does that handle lighter loads like target loads and birdshot?
