I was at the range yesterday trying out some shotguns. New to shotguns but I'm trying to educate myself right now for a potential buy by end of year. I wanted to try out the SuperNova but the guy behind the counter said I should prob stick with a remington because the SuperNova is a plastic gun and the remingtons are a more solid platform. I was a bit taken back because I carry a "Plastic" XDm 45 and love it!. The range DOES have remington posters and banners everywhere (duh) so I'm guessing he's a bit bias. BTW, ended up shooting the Rem870 with 3 1/2 00. My shoulder is a bit sore this morning and a bit bruised. I need to shoot some others to compare it.
