Got the 9rd 20" with the heat shield and speed feed stock. I am very pleased with how easy the thing points, and I think with a flashlight or even a laser, it will be tough to be for home defense. I'll still keep my Para P14.45LTD in the nightstand, but the 590 will now be my go-to weapon for things that go bump in the night. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
