Thanks, guys. This is the information I was looking for.
I'm planning on using my 870, then upgrade when and if I like it. I was planning on the 1100 or the 11-87. Do any of you have a ported barrel to reduce muzzle rise? What barrel length? I really like the shot performance from the 26 in. tube on my Remington, but I assume that this will put me at a disadvantage on corners and barricades.
