    I am in the mood for a kick ass shotgun. I have decided to follow the "2 is 1, 1 is none" program.

    I have 3-.22LRs, 2 semi-auto handguns, and 1 pump 12G.

    I may have a lead on a 870. I like these and the 590A1.

    18" bbl 590a1 would be my choice. I had one and it's a super sturdy pump shotgun.

    If your looking for a kickass role then look no further than the Serbu super shorty.

    Cant go wrong with an 870 or a 590a1. I really like the safety on the Mossbergs.

    I have an 870 and just bought a Mossy 500 and the safety is definitely better on the 500.

    I only have one 12 gauge.
    Pump 500 Mossy with a pistol grip.

    Add Federal Tactical slugs and you've got a party!

    I don't know what your current gun is. But...to match that HK, I'd say Benelli M4. Benelli, it';s the HK of Shotguns. Or, on the down low, if you already have a 500/870, a Maverick would not be a bad choice.

    Agreed. Also, IMO, the action release button is in a way better location on the Mossberg as well.

    I have a HD 870 and am also going to add a Mossy Gunsite model.

    Get a Remington 870 or Mossberg pump. You can feed it anything there is without having to worry about jams or cycling issues that are more prone on the semi-auto models. Get an extended mag tube (my 870 is 7+1) and a nice strap (preferably one that holds shells), and you are good to go!

    The location of the safety is the Mossberg's only advantage over an 870. Unfortunately, it also seems to be the part that breaks the most.

    A 930SPX is on my short list. The 870 I have is badass, but not bad enough.

    Oh, I have an old police Winchester 1300 Defender, complete with sunbleached wood on one side, and rack marks. It looks mint inside and the action is SMOOTH and FAST.

    It's pretty cool.

    Regarding the slide release lever location on 870. If You are actually train with your shotgun it won't be a problem - it's like muscle memory. Your finger will go there instantly. Safety location is in good place on 870 IMO, but some people are unhappy with it. Probably the worst thing You can do is to constantly switch between the platform as it may create some confusion when You will need it the most. Otherwise between 500 and 870 You really can't go wrong. Winchester and Ithaca are also worth to look at.
