Remington 870 the world record holder

As of 2009 and made from 1950 by Remington over 10 million 870's in slightly different purpose built forms have been made. The military, the police, the hunter, the skeet shooter all have slightly dressed versions. Mine is my heavy artillery home defense weapon of choice with buckshot. Mine is a standard Express which is probably the cheapest version.

Here is the other popular 12ga shotgun, Mossberg claims to have sold over 12 million of
their Mossberg 500 line. I have this one for home defense, 8-shot (7+1 using 2 ¾" shells) with the collapsible
stock. Loaded with 00 buck. It does have a scope rail for those long range sniper shots...... :lol:
Only keep 4+1 in it to protect the spring from compression. I figure if I need more than 5 rounds, it has gone
from home defense to a firefight, then it's time for my 7.62 AR or .308 HK91...... :mrgreen:
Of course I'm kidding, am just too old for that kind of shit.


Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.

My favourite was an Ithica M37 with a 20-inch barrel and a full magazine; when we were allowed such things.
Self Defence is not only a Right, it is an Obligation.
