    I love my 590. She's a bit of a heavy *****, but 8+1 capacity, rock solid reliability, and tough as nails make up for it.

    Get an 18.5" barrel for it. That's all you need. I give three bits of advice for anyone building a fighting shotgun. 1. Keep it basic 2. Keep it basic 3. Keep it basic

    the express finish sucks though lol. Rust if you drink a glass of water in same room. I also love ghost rings, not a bead guy

    I've seen a couple of videos on a UTA 15. Hickock 45 seemed to like them. But I saw another vid where the shooter had a hard time making it work. Anyone here used one?

    Benelli M4. Good enough for the United States Marines, good enough for me.

    Benelli M4. Wish I could find one for a decent price, but my M3 and 121 M1 will do for now...

    I like my 870. Mag extension, surefire foreend, knoxx stock, side saddle on receiver and stock, and XS big dot rifle sights.

    Probably take a nice benelli if I had the coin, but on my budget I love my winchester 1300 defender... With that said a short barrel on my 870's or a Moss 500 would be just fine indeed..

    What did you do to shorten that barrel? I'd like to cut down my 28" VR barrel to about 23" but I want to thread it for turkey chokes.

    I have a Mossberg 590A1 six shot. I like it a lot.

    I would like to add a Benelli M1 Super 90 or M2 to the stable. The FN SLP looks pretty darn good too. :wavey:
