I was recently shopping for a defensive shotgun. They were tough to find in my local area I suppose because of the current gun buying climate (politcally), and when I finally did find some, all I had to choose from was a Chinese H&R with pistol grip and fancy sites, or a basic Maverick 88 Security. I went with the Maverick, and I like it's simplicity. It does have the black stock, but if it had been available in wood, I would have bought it. Otherwise, it has none of the usual "tactical" features (no extended tube, simple blued finish, bead front site).

Of course, now that I've purchased one, the local shop just recently got a variety batch of 500s in. Oh well, I like my Maverick.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." Col. Jeff Cooper, from The Art of the Rifle
