I've had my 16 ga 870 since the mid-sixties. It has collected quite a bit of 4 legged and winged game. At some point I bought an extra smoothbore barrel, had it cut down to 20" and rifle sights installed. I found it wasn't all that accurate with slugs, but OK with shot, & was able to find some #1 buck at Cheaper than Dirt about a year ago. I keep it loaded with that behind the BR door.
#1 looks pretty deadly at in-house distances. It also fits in a 16 ga shell better than 00.
There's a fundamental flaw in a system that passes laws that put an onerous burden on law-abiding citizens, but fails to prosecute the criminals who break those laws.
