    Congratulations! IMHO, the finest shotgun platform in the business, closely followed by the Mossberg 590A1. She, your girlfriend, must be quite a lady. You are, Sir, indeed blessed...

    Glockcurmudgeon, out...

    When we first got married, my wife ask me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her a Colt SAA and something else I can't say on here. I've been married for 40 years and still get the same two things every Christmas and still have all my Colts. This year she got me three things, a Colt, some Viagra and you know the rest. :D:D:D

    Only thing I use viagra for is my tomatoes. Plant a pill with them and they don't need to be staked. They got so big this year I sold the stalks for cord wood.

    Oh, I thought I was on the joke forum.

    Back on topic, (hahaha) the 870 express is a great gun. Word of advice, watch the ammo you put into it. I was skeet shooting a few days ago and put a bad shell into (my mistake) anyway, it took my an hour to work the shell out. Also, if you have shot it then you'll notice sometimes you've got to pull the pump back a little harder to eject the shell. Just a few gripes, but overall it's a great gun. Like I said, I own one myself.

    I've never had an issue with shells in my 870 but I never shot anything but winchester ammunition.

    I've had my 870 for atleast 15 yrs and put countless shells of all different brands through her,,,, never 1 problem loading, firing, or extracting any shells. She's been dubbed " Sweaty Betty" because she's always ready!!
