Boy, oh, boy what a great topic for a thread. I've got a lot of shotties lying about the house.
They range from the Stoeger Outback stoked with TAP buckshot and Federal tactical slugs, to an old Little Rock, Arkansas PD 870 stoked with TAP buckshot to my hunting favorite, a Stoeger Coach gun, loaded with TAP buckshot to my beside baby, my 835 Ulti-Mag, complete with 20-inch barrel (they don't make an 18), Knoxx Comp Stock and 3 1/2" 00 buckshot. They're all 12-ga.
I have a "new" BPS 10-ga., that I keep loaded with 00. Shot a soccer ball with it recently. Wow.
I guess the real workhorse HD gun is the one by the bed, the Mossy 835, which is also the most....customized? personalized? tacticalized?
I love'em all.
