Frank,while extended mags are available for the 870, the fact is FBI stats show that when a shotgun is involved in a firefight, an average of ONE round/participant is fired. If you're(or I) face four armed opponents, we need backup way more than a coupla mo' rounds in the tube.

I find 870s fun for real,took one of mine for a walk in the woods yesterday. Only reason I didn't drag out a deer is I didn't see one I wanted to kill. If I had, the 870 would have done its job, just like so many times before.
