First shotgun, LOVE IT!

So yesterday I decided that it was finally time, ive wanted a shotgun for a while now but was doing research and wasn't quite sure what to get. after much debating I made my decision and took the plunge
- Remington 870 Express 12ga 6+1 mag tube, tacstar side saddle is on the way. Got to shoot a few shells lastnight as the range was closing but I love it, Ive got 2 friends with mossy 500s and I just don't like the feel ( not to say there is anything wrong with them, just not for me)
heres a quick Iphone Pic ( nikon is being fixed) now time for more goodies
Tactical Shotguns
you never know, the zombies..
Tactical Shotguns
not too bad of a setup for a 20yo college student

Great choice. I too am an 870 man. The Mossy's are fine guns as
are others, but you can't beat an 870. Great setup on yours.
If you ever need any information or help on 870's go to J.D.'s
website www.aiptactical.com and read some of the info. on 870's
as defensive weapons, very interesting and J.D. is a wizard when
it comes to the 870. He also answers here as Aippi.
Shoot and train with that 870 as often as you can, and enjoy.

Nice choice. You have your shotgun and handgun...now you need a rifle to round up your trifecta.

Great choice, congrasts OP!
I just put the final touches on my 870 Tactical, got a Mesa Tactical 4 shell sidesaddle and single point sling mount (I'm gonna run the same MS2 sling that I use for my M4) for Christmas and a used 870P Speedfeed IV-S pistol stock with a R3 pad that I purchased just before the holidays. The Forend is a Surefire 618FA.
I did all the break in and bore and chamber polishing as recommended on Aippi's website and it's been flawless.
I think my final tweak will be a modified choke as the breacher choke makes no sense for a civilian HD / tactical training gun. I'm signed up for a couple of classes at FAS this coming new year.

Come and shoot some 3-gun. Learn how to manipulate, shoot and load quickly before you put all that weight on the gun. You may find out you will be comfortable shooting without those things.

Resist the temptation to be one of those people who spends more money on gadgets than you do on ammo.

I am another 870 guy. I have come full circle, started with an 870 Express, then on to the double barrel, then a semi-auto, and now I am back to the 870. This time I have two of them, both 870 Wingmasters(one in 12ga, one in 20ga).

An AR would be nice but bring some .223 and someone will lend one to you.

well I went to the range and shot the 870 and the .22 today, first time really shooting off the shoulder and its probably gunna be sore tomorrow, but i guess part is to blame on me chosing 3" slugs and 00 buck for range ammo
- needless to say i wont be using those again for range sessions. but it shot great, 100 shells 100 bangs, could'nt be more happy.

You have an EDC and you're only 20? Were you in the military or illegally own/carry a handgun?

Nice 870, glad you enjoyed your first trip with it, it will only get smoother as you work the pump and become more acquainted with the action.

^ lol nope, sorry i didn't mean carry, it rides in the car everyday and goes inside as long as im not in a public area, but at work it sits right in front of me and there are a few private business i have permission to carry in.
- as far as owning, my parents sign the papers, i can posess a handgun at 18 with parental consent, I will actually be a sworn deputy before im 21 anyways
- ya the 870 felt amazing, my shoulder dosen't though lol, nice bruise from that, but took it apart and cleaned it last night without a problem, ive got pics and videos uploading so ill post those up.
