I recently picked up a Remington 870 Police Magnum. My main reasons for picking that one over the Mossberg are as follows:
1. Proven track record - The 870 has been around for years, and has earned it's reputation as being the most reliable and durable pump there is.
2. Accessories - More available for the 870 than anything else.
3. Quality - The 870 just feels like a more solid weapon when I hold it, with a smoother action.

Nothing wrong with the Mossberg. It would be right up there with an 870. But a few small things made me go with the 870.
The plus side of a Mossberg is that the safety is in a more ergonomical location than the standard safety button on the 870. However, this can be remedied by adding a jumbo head safety button on the 870. I did that on mine, and de-safetying the weapon is much quicker now.
