    Good for home defense, recreational shooting and skeet shooting?

    How would something like that work?
    I've liked that gun for awhile now and another fun show is coming up, figured I could go ahead and get this want out of the way too.

    A plain jane 870 will be fine.

    I shoot trap with a shotgun similar to that one. It works out all right but the shorter barrel shows.

    Remington 28" barrels cost about $250.

    Easier just to buy a 2nd shotgun.

    For mine (pictured): unscrew clamp holding mag tube and barrel, unscrew mag tube extension, remove barrel.

    reverse for installation

    While you can shoot lead shot though a rifled barrel the shot is going to get deformed and your patterns will suffer. Just doesn't make sense to me. If you have a rifled shotgun barrel just shoot sabot slugs.

    I think I have seen that same shot gun/bedspread photo since at least 2006.

    Any life updates?
