    There's something about that stainless steel that makes that 870 look great!!! I have the same buttstock with pistol grip, I'd never go without a pistol grip.

    I had a 500, it was ok. When I bought an 870; I noticed a big difference. Easier to take apart and clean, better quality, and you can put a zillion gadgets on it.
    Mine has the adjustable buttstock with kung fu pistol grip, two sidesaddles, door breaching barrel, heat shield, laser, and light. It's a little on the heavy side, but this shotgun is NOT for girly men.
    By the way, I keep single 0 in the tube, self defense shells (high velocity BB's) in one sidesaddle, and slugs in the other sidesaddle.

    First time I handled and shot a Winchester 1300 Defender I knew I had to have one. At the time, I was a Remington 870 [Express] fan. In my opinion, there is not a better HD shotgun. Smooth as silk action, 18" barrel, 8 round capacity, light weight and lightning fast. Probably as close to a semi-auto as a pump can get. The feature that sets the 1300D apart from the others is it's rotary bolt (like the AR15). Unfortunately it has not been produced in a number of years, but they show up all the time on Gunbroker for $250 to $325. I got mine several years ago like new for $250. Anyway, it's my go to gun when things go bump-in-the-night and is always loaded with Federal Tactical LE132 00 Buck. Not a big fan of "tacticool", just simple and lethal. Mine is totally stock with the exception of the Surefire G2X.

    Got to be the Mossberg 590A1SPX 9-shot 12 gauge; has a 20 barrel, Ghost Ring sights, and a bayonet option. It weighs 7.25 lbs.

    I don't have a picture of mine readily available, but this is what it looks like.

    I second the vote for the Winchester 1300 Defender. I've owned Mossberg, and Remington in several flavors and would take the 1300 over any of them. Smoothest pump shotgun I've ever handled.

    I've never had an 870 I've shot them before I have a preference for the 590 that's just what I've always carried. both are almost identical except for some small features such as the safety location I like the thumb safety on top. either 1 would be a great deal!!!

    Re: best pump shotgun for the money?

    Another vote for the 870.They just feel right to me and there are a billion out there so parts are never a problem.I have had 500s,88s,Winchesters and Ithacas but the 870 is my favorite by far.The action on a broken in 870 is like butter.
