I have a Remington and a Mossberg, either or as long as it works.

No way was I going to spend 8 minutes of my life listening to some dude talk about a fukn shotgun.

The 870 is the better gun, but Mossberg 500 series is very close. Either platform is fine, and you'll never want for spare parts or aftermarket components for the next few lifetimes.

Not much to say about either, except they both work.  It really depends on whether you like a crossbolt safety, or tang safety.  Also, whether you like a skinny buttstock grip, or thicker buttstock grip.

Remington 870 = crossbolt safety and skinny grip.
Mossberg 500 = tang safety (ambidextrous) and fat grip.
Maverick 88 is a Mossberg 500 with a crossbolt safety instead of tang safety.

They all shoot well, and would all make a nice HD weapon.  It really boils down to which one you shoulder quicker and more comfortably.

If a revolution occurs, I want all badasses on my side. The people depicted in these pictures are lethal weapons. Hands as deadly as grenades, with the precision shot of a top tier marksman.

The Remington 870 is a legendary shotgun. If you get the Wingmaster version. The wood and the metal look 1st rate. The economical Express 870 while using cheaper wood and the mental doesn't have a great finish operationally it works perfect. There are so many out there that any option you can think of is easily available. With hard cast Brenneke slugs you could hunt any big game in America within 125 yards or so with a 870 with a smooth bore. Those slugs also have been used in Africa.

 The 870 was the standard police shotgun forever but now it seems many top shelf Police departments are going to the Benelli auto. The action takes a lot of the sting out of shooting heavy loads out of it. It's relatively easy to get good groupings with standard slugs with it's smooth bore with it's rifle sights. The smooth bore allows you to switch between buckshot and slugs.  It also never has jammed on me.

Beretta 391 is a brilliant gun as well. I won 3 of them at various national Sporting Clays competitions in the US as a kid. I love semi-autos.

The 870 & Mossberg 500 are your basic entry level shotguns. Cheap, reliable, easy to fix.
Lot of people buy aftermarket shit for them for various reasons.
I have both. Now they're collecting dust.

I shoot a lot of sporting clays and moved towards semi autos and over/unders. Have semi auto Berttas & Brownings.

870 is an excellent choice as a self defense shotgun. I know someone involved in the clay sports wouldn't pick that shotgun.  Shooting clays is another animal concerning shotguns.  I always wanted a side by side but the cost is through the roof.

Pumps are just a poor choice for shooting sports. Wrong tool for the job.

For a starter HD gun an 870 is hard to beat though.

Shot clays for years with pumps, not ideal but still gets the job done. It's really one of those things where it's all about the user & skill level ....not the tools.

What I love about the first pic is he's put about $300 worth of crap on a $150 SKS.  ;D
The SKS is a great rifle....but....

If you're looking for home defense I would look at the Mossberg 500, Rem 870 or the Mossberg 590 a1 if you want to spend a little more. Get something with an 18"-20" barrel for maneuverability.

The Mossberg 590 A1 is/was used by the military. It's the only shotgun that passed the 3,000 round torture test. The model I own has the speed feed stock that holds 4 more shells. With a side saddle I'm able to put 19 rds on the gun. Also has a bayonet mount for when things get a little crazy.

Closest I came to shooting a gun was using air rifles on a recent holiday. Wouldn't mind shooting in a sporting context but no need for guns here, police don't even carry guns.

Sporting clays is like golf with a shotgun.

I always say it's the most fun thing you can do while standing upright  :D

5-stand is a close second, then skeet, then trap. Absolute blast bro.

I tried sporting clays I could never get the hang of it! I shot a lot of trap and skeet though. Trap is easy compared to skeet or SC. I was nailing 90% of the targets as a 13 year old first timer when I shot trap

One of my buddies describes sporting clays as "most fun you can have with your clothes on"

I fully agree. We go to a place called Deer Creek in southwest Michigan. Maybe few miles from Indiana border.

They have 3 courses which frustrate the living shit out of you, golf carts and ATVs which are included in a round of sporting clays, and of course we grab a few cigars for the afternoon. They'll also serve you lunch.

LOVE IT

Lol Awesome :)

I'll have to look this up. I'm fortunate to have competed in about 15 different states. Shot at some gorgeous courses. What an awesome sport. Never thought I would be discussing this on GetBig of all places but just shows you never know who you will meet on this crazy site

Yes very true. I started with trap as well and through the natural progression eventually ended up competing at sporting. The one clays game that can never be mastered. It's a pain in the ass is what it is  ;D

I can shoot a handgun between good and excellent depending if I have been practicing. Slugs in a shot gun with rifle sights I'm proficient with. A shotgun shooting at clays I really stink at. The problem is when I miss never know what I did wrong cause I don't know where the shot went. I would love to have a side by side like this but I would have to hit the lottery.

What places would you recommend for sporting clays you've shot at? Always looking for new ones & I love road trips.

Haven't had a chance to shoot too much this year for a few reasons but I'll be back at it in a few months.

Been a few years since I've been on the competitive circuit  but T&M Ranch outside of Orlando was gorgeous. Grouse Ridge shooting park in Wasilla, Alaska is phenomenal. Kachina (sp?) Open in Phoenix, and the course where they hold nationals every year in Texas was phenomenal as well, can't remember the name. Those are the ones that really stand out to me as my favorites.

I've been busy as well finishing up grad school but as soon as my practice is established next year, my goal is to get back into it. Will always be my favorite hobby next to training.
