    I had a nice FN pump shotgun but sold it. I'm now looking once again. I have a 28" one I would use for any clay/hunting purposes. This would be something 18" and I'm pretty sure still a pump. It would be for the home as well as any camping trips to the middle of nowhere.

    I really like Remington but I'm open to suggestions.

    I can get the XCS Marine Magnum ( http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/shotguns/model_870/model_870_xCS_marine_magnum.asp ) for $660 which is a decent deal for what it would otherwise retail for.

    Any other suggestions? No wood.

    I don't mind spending the extra money for one I want. I know they all shoot the same, blah blah blah. I don't want the Walmart special.

    It's what I like. The FN pump shotgun I had before was more or less a rebranded Winchester Defender and I sold it off after a while.

    The two I listed are ones I've liked for quite a while. I obviously haven't purchased anything yet.

    They have two "Tactical" versions. 22" with a normal stock, and 18" with a pistol grip. Both sell ~$750 last I checked.

    If all the ones I posted are a waste of money, what your thought on the Benelli M4. Same thing?

    870's with "stuff"? The Mossberg 590 seems nice too for something more simple.

    THT has a 590 with goodies and Soy/spank have 870s with goodies.

    OT's general consensus is the 870 > *, but for a HD shotgun I think the 500/590 is perfectly fine too. :dunno:

    My own advice is to go light on the stuff too. A quality magazine extension with a quality clamp is good. If its a home defense weapon a light is nice. I don't even know if I'd put a side saddle on anymore. Heatsheilds, folding stocks, and all the other garbage is best avoided.
