    remington 870 12g express tactical (the first one in the link)

    saw it at dick's yesterday for 349. it doesnt seem to be a bad price really. a lot of the stuff ive seen online have them at 400+. would this serve as a good all around gun for home defense and MAYBE an occasional clay (ive never shot clays before but i think it'd be fun)

    that's pretty much the going rate for a mossberg 590 or rem 870 around my neck of the woods, 870's a great shotty, and it's a good enough price imo

    I'm not a fan of the ported choke at the end, but to each thier own. I have the 870 HD model, which is basically the same gun minus the ported crap, I paid $300 for it NIB a couple years ago. I have run probably 1,000 rounds of bird shot though it, and I'd say 250 rounds of 00 buck. No problems, works great.

    I use it as my home defense gun.
