    Just brought home a hardly used Remmy 870 :wiggle:

    Has an 'improved' choke -- I understand the concepts of chokes but I'm not gonna act like I know how that compares to others -- comments?

    Also I'm looking into getting an extended tube (+2shot?), and maybe make it tacticool -- suggestions?

    Suggestion:
    Leave it stock and take a class. Then you'll know more about what YOU need and what you don't.

    Primarily home defense -- and generally a blow shit up on the weekend gun.

    Blow shit up as in shooting pumpkins and watermelons and such?

    For home defense I would rec. a short barrel shotgun that has good capacity.

    Mossberg 500A Cruiser.

    I have one myself. 7+1 of 00 buck. 20" barrel and I have a Knoxx Copstock on it. Pistol grip or unfold it to put on my shoulder.

    I keep it ready for home defense but I have used it to target shoot and trap shoot (not so great, no chokes and 20" barrel :o )

    I'd check one out.

    Shotgun on the bottom. Old photo too.
