    Hey guys,
    I'm wanting to either build or buy a tactical shotgun for home defense. I've got two shotguns I use for hunting, both Remington 870. Any ideas or suggestions on what to get? My budget would be around $500, if possible. Thanks in advance!

    Mossberg 500, or Maverick 88 as far as a tactical shotgun. You could also go with a Stevens 250 but it is harder to accessorize.

    Just get another 870 tactical model. They come w/ a rail already installed on the receiver a tube extension and I believe a muzzle device for around $400. You're already familiar w/ the 870 and it's one of the best around, win/win.

    Mossberg 500 Persuader/Cruiser 18 1/2" barrel , may make a good choice for the price but they have many out there to choose from

    Their chainsaw model (which is a cruiser with a handle on the pump) is pretty nice too.

    Thanks, I think I'm gonna look into the tactical model, I've never had any issues with 870, so like you said win/win

    I also agree with the 870. Start with the 870 tactical, then add what ever accessories you want. I doubt in the end after you are done adding to it, I doubt you will be under 500.

    I'm still waiting to try the new Kel-Tec offering I find the whole concept intriguing!

    I often wonder why it's taking so long then I remember how much redesigning they were having to do in order to make it exceptable outside of the twice a month recreational market.

    It's a bad-ass idea but...

    The ksg is out, it's just finding one. And after reading up on it, I'll stock to my pump. Too many things to go wrong.

    Damn I missed the memo. It's a very cool concept and I'd like to try one out. Buy one then send it my way :)

    there are 3 guns I have been saying I want to buy. an M1 garand, a versa max, and either a 9mm beretta or a .45 1911 so it looks like you are out of luck. ;)

    Are you wanting to buy a new shotgun? I would just add a Blackhawk stock and a Remington short 18" barrel and a extension tube. to one of your 870,s. You can add a optic or red dot and still use it for hunting just remove the extension tube. All this for less then $500.

    I agree convert an existing 870. cheapest and for 500 you can make one hell if an hd gun.
