ronn i help out in a gun shop every now and then and you'd be surprised how many folks don't know about the over bore. thats why i went with the 870, not that i ever slug hunt.

gfdeputy2 well thanks for that Ronn
I am one that actually reads the manual cover to cover, field strip the gun, work the action blah blah blah before even thinking of firing a weapon
& it actually is stamped on the barrel not for use w/ slugs

I got my new Ruger LCP over a month ago & have not shot it yet because I haven't had time to do my checklist & now it has to go back for a recall so I won't probably shoot it till next year

gfdeputy2 Ronn I purchased a smoothbore barrel on Ebay brand new for under $30.00 Sorry I forgot to mention that
Yes that is the draw back of the 835 but thanks to Ebay (not paying $100.00 for a barrel ) it is not a big deal takes like 20 sec to change the barrel out for the price I am happy with it just wish it was a little shorter
butt stock is a little long for me deer & Turkey not a problem but Drawing on the fly at clay's & birds sometimes I have a little trouble but I am trying to find a camo youth stock for it & that issue will be solved

ronn hey gfdeputy, do you run slugs down that smooth bore or do you have a slug barrel? i only ask cause the smooth is an over bore and its not good to run slugs down it.

dgaeddert Dude the remington model 870 Super magnum is definently the way to go. its only jammed on me a couple times and that was when i was pumping through a hundred rounds a night dove hunting. its an amazing gun. and be sure to get the 3.5 inc

DKA Have a Remington 11-87 Super Mag, an 870 Super Mag for Turkeys, a 870 20 Ga. Mag for upland birds, and just got a Remington/Baikal SPR453 12 Ga.The 870 is the most gun for the money.

Rozman62 I have a Win 1300 Black Shadow rifled slug gun in 12 gauge. It kicks me back pretty hard. I prefer to use my Omega in thicker areas.
