I am a retired LEO, the most neglected and abused weapon is the cruiser shotgun. It stays in the car, seldom get cleaned, have been found with cigarette butts down the barrel. I personally have tossed one cross a fence into a mud puddle (unintended). The 870, like the energizer commercial took a licking and kept on ticking. Many look better but none are more rugged, which is what I want when the stuff get runny.

Can't go wrong with any of the shotguns already mentioned.

I prefer my short coach gun just the same.

Bad guy is staring down two barrels instead of one.

Mossberg 500.
Have had the Remington 870 and prefer the Mossberg loading better to the Rem.

I've had a Winchester Defender, Mossberg 590, and currently a Remington 870 Police Magnum. I can say that any of these three are excellent shotguns for SD. Sometimes, these decisions are a matter of timing, and what comes along at the right time for the purchase to be made.

Modifications: 6 rd sidesaddle, sling, Wingmaster forearm altered to fit the sidesaddle, rifle sights, 18" cylinder bore barrel, oversized safety.

I have an old Winchester Defender, but I would like to have one of AIP's 870s.

I've been happy with my Winchester. It's light and reliable.

I like 870's and 500's. They are equal to me in terms of a "good all around shotgun", but if I HAD to choose only one, it would be the 870. It's got a more heavy duty feeling.

Nothing like getting a finger or thumb gouged by an 870 lifter trying to load a shell

mossberg

the position of the safety made the decision for me. I own a Remington as well but prefer the controls on the Mossberg.

I like them both, but the controls of the 870 work better with a PG shoulder stock, which I very much prefer due to handling and retention capability.

I'll choose a Saiga 12 any day. High reliability from its AK47 platform, and truly a combat shotgun. Slap in a magazine (capacity 10) filled with buckshot or slugs, and you've got a semi-auto beast ready to roll.

Just one shotgun, it would have to a Benelli for me. If its a pump then the Nova or Super Nova. Auto the the M1.

That's interesting. You are actually in much worse position in terms of weapon retention with the pistol grip.

I have heard that said before but I am not sure I actually understand it. I might have to check out you tube to see if there is a video of it, but I just can't feature one being better than the other, and not sure why one would be worse. If that makes any sense.

You may want to check "StressFire Vol. 2" by Massad Ayoob. I think that he explained that pretty well.
