My brother in law is a hell of a cool guy who's going to get into guns. With the kids and my sister going back to school, plus truck repair bills I know money is going to be tight for him. That being said, I was thinking about giving him my 870 Express 18". Is the Supernova 18" or 14" a better shotgun that's worth the upgrade? If I got one of the tacticool Supernovas, would I be able to stick a 28" barrel on it for trap/hunting/whatever? If so, how much would Benelli ding me for a second barrel? Any other recommendations to upgrade to from the 870 express? Gun will be a short barrel with a longer barrel option just for plinking and whathaveyou. I don't shoot my shotguns often, though I do like having one, i just figured he would enjoy the 870 as a gift and I could use this as an excuse to pick up something else.
