    Well shoot, now you guys got me re-thinking my shotgun selection. I've owned a Mossberg Maverick 88, got it for 125 dollars used. I didn't like the way it felt compared to the 870, so I sold it. At least with the 870 I know I can swap barrels, and go hunting with it.

    My FFL dealer had a Christmas party going on today, so I went down there for the food and to look at shotguns. I shouldered a Benelli Nova with ghost rings and a regular stock, it didn't feel quite right. Then I tried the 870 Marine Magnum. It felt better, so I might end up getting another 870.

    Thanks again everyone!

    I have problems with my Mossy 500 20ga reliably feeding 3" shells.

    Go back with the 870, you already know it fits and is good reliable choice. Get the super Mag and find some 3 1/2. Loved mine. Have a Browning Gold Hunter but its not a pump but my wife can drop the shell and mash a button. (And yes that is a distinctive sound as well). She is comfortable with it so thats a big help.

    I would look hard for a "lightly" used 870P.
