That's a good little self defense gun. The 500 is a reliable shotgun, that honestly doesn't get enough recognition. I think there every bit as good as a winchester 1300, and that's about all I'd compare them to. The 870 is a different animal, with a steel receiver. Have you considered a 590? Just curious.

I prefer the 870 myself hard to screw up perfection Mossberg is good don't get me wrong I just prefer the 870's Either or you cant go wrong for the price and quality you get from either one of them but if I had the choice 870 parkerized. Practical not flashy

With some accuracy and reload drills, you could do well with 2 less rounds and have ammo money left over after selling the gun for $200

You do lose MUCH barrel options in the hi-cap model.

the Mossy is a good gun, as is the Remmy. I prefer the location of the safety over the Remington 870 though...
