    Bass Pro Shop has it for $199.95 after $50 mail in rebate... even at $249.95 it would be a good buy being a $330 gun, but for $200, its hard to say no. Can I use a shotgun for deer hunting :noes:

    Yes, you can use a shotgun for deer hunting. Hunters usually use 00 or 000 buckshot or slugs for hunting deer. And that is a good deal. Go buy it now.

    Santa is bringing it for me :x:

    Does the 870 come w/ rifled barrel?

    Yeah I was looking at the ad and I thought it was for a different gun, I had to read it like 3 times. Even at $250 its still a decent buy, but shit you would pay $200 for a used one, might as well pick it up ive been looking for a 12 guage for awhile now... looks like waiting has paid off.

    Nope, right now ive only got a 22 rifle, im just starting to get a gun "collection" going.

    The ad says its 3.5" ... are all 870's that?

    and you can always buy a rifled barrel seperately.. probably could pick up a used one for a decent price, check out www.gunbroker.com

    you'll want a rifled barrel if you plan to shoot slugs :cool:

    if its a 3.5" chamber, you can still shoot 3" and 2 3/4" shells in it

    The 3.5" is probably going to kick my ass eh? Ive only shot 2 3/4 before... Im not a big guy by any means, definately not going to want to shoot this all the time, but for a hunting gun - decent? And can I shoot OTHER rounds, or am I limited to 3.5" only?


    Also, without a rifled barrel -- can I shoot sabot slugs?

    No. Sabots are for Rifled barrels/slug guns and Rifled slugs (Fosters) are for smoothbore.

    Although, you could shoot rifled slugs through a rifled barrel, it wouldn't be accurate.

    The only thing that sucks, its 3/4 shot (3 - 3.5" or 4 - 2.75") kinda crappy. But I guess if you are HUNTING, you dont need more then that.

    Im also looking at a cheap 8+1 home defence 12 guage. :bigthumb:

    theres probably a plug in the magazine tube, you can take it out to increase capacity but check your local laws when it comes to hunting with or without a plug.
