Interesting read...Tom wouldn't be too happy with my HD set up. I keep my 870 express 5077 fully loaded...6 in the mag tube and one in the chamber with the safety on. No kids in the house...just me and my dog.
I don't want to be fumbling aroung in the dark if the boogy man and one or two of his friends decides to break in my house at 4AM and loading the gun while half asleep in the dark during a home invasion.
I've tried to keep the gun simple...no George Foreman grill, but a Hogue overmolded 12" LOP stock, Mesa 6 round sidesaddle and a CDM MOD-C mount with a Surefire G2 LED flashlight attached to it.
