    +1 on the 870.

    I have several including a Marine Magnum. They're reliable, solid and lots of "accessories" are available for them.

    I am a Mossberg 500 man myself. The combo set with two barrels will do most everything you could want to do.

    I've owned many and still do own some. I have had Remington 870 too, but the safety is in the wrong place on those.

    You can purchase an extra barrel pretty darn cheap and have the best of both worlds.
    I agree.

    There is a wide variety of accessories available for the 870, probably more than any other shotgun out there. The reason for that is, they are very popular. They are popular for a reason.

    I just put a "Tactical" Model 870 with a Pistol Grip, Compensator and Extended Magazine Tube on "Lay-Away" today. Look out 3-Gun Matches, here I come.

I want a 12ga, but I don't know anything outside of that. What is the practical difference in barrel lengths? What is a good ammunition for defense purposes? I've been told brands like Charles Daly, Mossberg 500, and Remington 870, but don't really know any specifics. I'd also like to stay around $300, give or take. Can anyone make any suggestion?

    I'm also looking to beef up my home defense with a shotgun. Just like you, I am looking to stay around $300. I've talked to a lot of people (both in person and on other forums), and everyone said I should get either the 870, or the 500. Of course, everybody had their preference of the two--but they all agreed either would work fine for home defense.

    Fortunately, you can find either one for around $300 (new, in box). Sites like gunbroker.com have several of each currently for sale. You can also pick up both in pawn shops for under $250.

    BTW--You can tell from my signature line where I'm leaning on the choice!
