Grad gift to self!!!

Well, it's done. I've graduated from high school!!! No one's got the nerve enough to get me a gun for graduation, so they all just gave me money and I went out and got myself a present.

I went to the shop to see what kind of interesting stuff they had this time and I found this thing called the Remington 870 Tactical Magnum. There's nothing about it at any of the Remmy sites so I assume it's pretty new. 12gx3", 20" cyl barrel, tube mag extended to 7 rounds, LE forend, pistolgrip buttstock, and the reciever, tube, extender and barrel are all park'ed OD green. The tag said about $460-something. I pick mine up one week from Monday. Anyone else seen these things yet?

EDIT: Here we go, this is what I got: Guns America Classifieds - Remington 870 Tactical Magnum

I bought me a pardner 12 Ga when I graducated too. I was in the same boat regarding the 'straw man' thing. They all said: get an Id and get it yourself. So I did. Still have that old thing and its still my favorite shotgun. Its now a 18" + adjustable choke I liberated from a semiauto I don't know what barrel in a bucket deal. Dont try shooting it like a pistol from mad max or you may have a new satelite named after you.

Oh don't worry, I wasn't gonna try that. I don't need any more firearm related bruises. I finally understand what they mean by recoil after I pulled both triggers on my SxS simultaneously. But that's okay, my cheekbone took most of the force out of the blow, so my shoulder was only green for two weeks.

Haven't seen that particular model, but cops been using 870's for a LONG time with good results.
