    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 :wavey:
    - 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 :)

    not too bad of a setup for a 20yo college student :cool:
     
  2. 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.

    ya ive considered it, i still need to shoot mine on a full range trip and decide what i wanna do. what guns do you need for 3 gun?
     
  12. 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.
