used to have a Remington SPS turkey gun W/ a 21" choke tube barrel that did double duty as my HD and hunting shotgun. As time has gone by I aquired other hunting shotguns and the 870 was relagated to closet duty only.With mydive into Cowboy Action shooting I bought a IAC 1897 Winchester copy and finding that it is reliable and accurate (It'll cloverleaf slugs at 25 Yards all day) I sold my 870 and the '97 has been fielding the closet HD duty since.
I did add a old school tacticool leather butt cuff that holds 4 extra shells and provides a little padding for my shoulder.
rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

My handguns are are for one purpose only, though...
