    Last Fall, I bought a Remington 870 Express Tactical with fixed 14" stock. The LOP is a bit long, recoil with 00 buck is harsh, and I want to buy a soft case. I intend to use the shotgun for plinking at the range. After doing a lot of internet searching, I have a few questions:
    1. I really like the Hogue grips I have on several handguns. Any opinions on the Hogue 08730 OverMolded fixed 12" LOP stock vs. an adjustable stock? I don't want to spend the cash on a Knoxx adjustable or equivalent stock if the Hogue will do.
    2. Any recommendations on a relatively inexpensive($20.00-50.00) soft case?
    3. Worth getting the 870 parkerized?
    Thanks in advance.

    That stock will serve your needs.

    I have many of the Allen soft black Tactical cases that I use to transport weapons to the Range. They are well made, padded and only cost around $20 - $25. They are made for the Assault tupe rifles and have the mag pouches on the outside but work well for shotguns.

    Parkerizing the weapon is a matter of "where do you live" ? If you are in a high humidity environment then yes. If not, then keeping on top of the matte finish on your weapon will prevent it from rusting.
