    I've gat both an 870 and a moss 500, to tell the truth i'd be hard pressed to say one is better than the other. Go with what you like, if you think the 870's sexy go for it

    Agree. Both highly customizable and both used by military and LE around the world. I have an 870 express super mag which just means the 3 1/2 chamber and I love it. A friend of mine has one he shoots 100 rounds every Sunday has had it for about 3 years and has never cleaned it, keeps it in his truck tool box it never has a problem of any kind. Like the ak of shotguns I would say.

    I'm real happy with my mossburg 590a1 in marine coat. 8+1 20" barrel. You can get one with the speed feed stock for another 4 shells at hand.

    I bought that used a couple years ago for $200. One of the LGS has a new one they want $450 for but i'm sure you can get them cheaper, especially if you get just a regular 500

    if you go with mossberg get a 590a1 same gun just the tactical version. i have an 870 express super mag. mine is a hunting hd mix. i just need a light and a sling and im done. I was thinking about a magazine extension but if i need more than 3 shells then you are in way more than the average home defense situation.

    That is an interesting gun. I am of the mind of waiting a couple years and see how it shakes out.

    You really can't go wrong with either the 870 or mossberg 500. Both are great choices and if properly maintained will last you a life time. I'm personally a mossberg guy myself. The mossberg 500 is what got me into shooting. They are great, no frills shotguns that get the job done. Whether it be skeet/trap, hunting, or home defense. There are also an endless amount of accessories for both platforms. You can see some pictures of my shotguns in the "lets see some of your scatterguns" thread. Page 2. They its a crappy picture though.
