    Beware of that stock. At the big LEO 3 gun match there were some marines with that set up and they beat their faces up real good. That m4 stock is not meant for a low sight radius like a shotgun. So to use the sights you have to press your face down into the stock. After 50 rounds of birdshot their face got beat up from forcing a cheek weld. Three tough marine dudes ended up borrowing 870's with regular strait stocks to finish the match.

    I talked with two of them during the match. They said it was pretty brutal and one guy said he think it loosened a filling.

    it was $595 at a gun store near the outskirts of Houston

    thanks! i can't way to take it a range, and shoot at some silhouettes (figure I should get some level of proficiency should the need arise!)
    i'll probably get funny ranges taking a shotgun to a pistol/rifle range, but w/e- you do what you gotta do!

    thanks for the heads up. you're right, I feel my cheek pressing up against the stock. it's not pushing too hard, but i'll definitely watch out!

    Well people are used to seeing the strait stock remington 870's @ $300. In So Cal the big sporting good chains like Big 5 always has them for sale at just under $300.

    oh no. has nothing to do with the MSRP at all. You and I just have a different view on what would be a good thing to spend $600 on for a firearm related item. And $600 and 870 don't fit in the same sentence. Hell, if you got the "bug", you should have just done like all green arfcommers and buy 3 (or is it down to 2 now) stripped lowers. :hsugh:

    ah, i understand (a little). thanks for clearing that up
    i guess i'm lame, I was under the impression that the 870 was worth $600, since it's reliable (in the event that I need it, I'll only need one shot *hopefully*, but that's a critical shot...)

    the 870 express is reliable and worth $300. something got lost in the translation in your brain between this thread and the last one where everyone told you to get an 870 express. you got the reliability of an 870 with the decrease of effectiveness and increase of pain for $600

    that express is a hunting shotgun, isn't it?

    wouldn't the shorter barrel, and pistol grip be desirable for the uses I intend?

    I'd advise you to not go into the main forum. this thread seems to be moving too quickly for you. I can't imagine what that would do to you :eek4:

    this is fun :rofl:

    maybe it's the hunter in me or that I actually own firearms that have real wood, but I've never seen the necessity nor desire in a "tactical" shotgun outside of maybe SBRing it. And even then, it's pretty pointless as it's going to hurt and you don't really NEED (unless you're a retard and/or blind) any help at aiming a shotty for home defense. fuck, I have used to a fucking 870 out of the fucking box (wal mart) and hit a grouse at ~15 yards no fucking problem. I just :dunno:

    Would using some sort of raised sights alleviate this? Are raised sights a good idea on a shotgun anyway?

    you know what I mean. do you need a tactical stock to help you aim it? :hsugh:

    who's trolling here, you or me?

    quote=l4zy;108737497]Care to elaborate on that?[/quote]

    this shotgun was purchased for home defense purposes, primarily to be used in the even of a robbery
    from my personal experience, robberies are few, and far between
    therefore, i would not need to use my shotgun for its intended purpose very often
    however, in the even that i do use it, i would need it to work reliably

    unless there were multiple assailants, and/or they were wearing body armor, I imagine one round would be all i would need.

    i agree. i think maybe i'll just go stand in front of the mirror and feel really cool for a while
