Shotgun Thread

If it is 205 my apologizes. If not, how about a shotgun thread? Side by sides, over and under, personal defense, hunting and whatever else. I have a beat up Remington 870 with a mile long barrel. I didn't pay for it so that is the only shotgun I have. I have friends that are worried about current events that may be purchasing a shotgun for PD. I recommended a short barrel pump, priced at about $ 300.00. Let's hear you advice and what you have for yourself.

I'll play - here's my 870 (18.5", 6+1). I got this for a bit more, but $300 is definitely reasonable for what you're suggesting.

My friend has military service but it was a long time ago.He is not a gun guy he is just worried about political events that might erupt into some state of anarchy. I suggested a 410 ga. shotgun and a Taurus judge but 410 seems to be difficult to find. What would the asylum recommend ?

Remmie 870, well of course, and Glock 22 in case you run out of shotgun slugs.

The old side by sides have a great history of being effective .
Is it better than the pump?

The downside to SxS, for me, is probably the recoil. Most people say the SxS is inferior to the pump because there are only 2 shots before you have to reload. I ague you only have 1 shot in a pump before you have to reload.

I have a lot of time behind an 870 but I think a SxS is cool.

Shot an 870 Wingmaster for about 20 years. Really a great gun and took a lot of birds and clays with it. Sold it in about 2004 and bought a Beretta White Wing.



Got a 20 gauge sidey cheapo that's fun to mess with, 2 triggers. And my Ithaca model 37 Featherweight bottom ejection pump from my youth.

Bought an 870 20 gauge youth model some years back for the kids. Very small and compact, fun to shoot, and actually I think a great home defense gun.



Junior just bought his own Browning Silver Hunter, which he uses on the local youth trap team.
