I purchased this new Remington 870 (18" barrel, 6+1 capacity) earlier this month from Bud's Gun Shop in Lexington, KY for $321. Thought it was a good deal and purchased it as a basis for a tactical shotgun build. I'm very excited, but haven't got to pattern it yet. I need to find a place close to do that. I'll post pics as I add components to the build so you all can track it's progress. I know I love watching other members' rigs come together, and I know a lot of love our fair share of gun "porn". I'm also looking for recommendations for buckshot and slug loads to try in it. Right now I have Hornady TAP 2 3/4" 00 buckshot.
