I've been deciding if I should get a AR, I shot a couple and it didn't tickle my fancy, but I have been shooting the hell out of my 870 express and I've come to the conclusion that I love shotguns soooooo much that I want another one. Here's the basics... I've noticed the substantial weight of my 870 express fully loaded, so I don't want something with a million bells and whistles but I do want something a little more "tactical" than my 870. Speedfeed, pistol grip and the option to add a sling would be nice options. I want a great sight system. Not rifle sights nor front bead. Something like Ghost rings or fiber optic. If it's better to go with a picitanny rail and a red dot then please share that and reasons why it's better. I don't care if it's pump or semi, but I would like to stay under 800 dollars. I don't have Benelli money unfortunately. The purpose of this shotgun will be for fun range use and home defense but it will def be put through it's paces. So what do you guys think? Also I'm not partial to one brand, I know there are folks out there that will never buy a Mossberg or never buy a Remington etc... Hey they all go boom when I pull the trigger.
