These were originally taken as part of the "Example of how not to handle a firearm" series, right?

If the owner of a firearm unloads and clears his weapon, and is absolutely certain it's unloaded and unchambered, does an unsafe condition exist when he takes his photograph?

My 500 is pretty good, although I like my older 870 better. I agree on the new 870's though, they suck.

I've never really messed with a 590, not sure what the difference is between that and a 500.

I had it pointed at the camera, not my chest. You assumed too much.

^^ Thanks for that, I always wondered. Now I have to figure out what tube it has. I got it used and it has a slug barrel with rifle sights and a pistol grip(not a fan) I also got the bird barrel and original wood stock with it, but haven't put it on yet. I'm looking at an AR style collapsing stock to replace the lame pistol grip, I've never been able hit anything beyond about 10 yds with one, and they're downright unpleasant to shoot.

Does anyone know a good source for ghost ring sights for the 500? I've always liked those better then the buckhorn style rifle sights. But maybe I should just get a 590A1 and convert the 500 back to hunting trim.

You cannot go wrong with a 590A1. I got mine a few months back and got a great deal at gun show for the Blackwater model. Holds 8 in tube and one in chamber plus 4 more in speedfeed stock; gun is very solid, shoots great a little low until I adjusted the ghost ring sights but now right on. Gun is heavy but not great issue its not a field gun I have Berettta 20 gauge for that.

My recommendation is buy the 590A1!
