Too bad they cost three times what a blued 870 does.

The Remington Magnum Marine 870 isn't stainless, it's some sort of nickel plate. Nice guns, don't look too bad. What do they cost these days? I have one that I've owned for about 20 years, it's my loaner, it's always out on loan to someone.

Selling from around 650 or so now when the regular 870 is in the mid to high 200s.

Whoa! I have no recollection of what I paid for mine, but I recall thinking at the time that it was fairly inexpensive. Maybe I need to retrieve my Marine and stick it in the safe, and buy a basic 870 to loan out!

or charge accordingly if someone looses it or it gets stolen. I borroewed a Single six for s range day and that night, some idiots broke into my apartment in Cali and stole it and some other stuff. The guy I borrowed it from only charged me what he paid, which was like 120, the gun had to be worth 300 at least.

Honourable? He was probably the one who stole it.

This might not be the right place to ask this question, but what do I know about doing things the right way.

I went shooting today and had my first ever jam with my Glock. The casing had not completely been ejected and this is what it looked like. The bullet was still in the barrel and fell out into my hand. Has anyone ever had this happen? What would cause this? The primer has not been hit? I shot another 60 rds through the gun after this and didnt have another problem. I probably have 700 plus rounds through this gun so far and this is my first problem ever. BTW this is Winchester white box 115g.
