    I have an 870 Express and I love it. It's a darn fine shotgun. I'm just more use to the Mossy 500 so I guess I am more comfortable with it. I understand why 870 users feel the same way about their guns. As far as I am concerned, you are well protected with either one!

    The military is still using (the 870) too, have been since the last days of Vietnam
    I didn't see any mention of the 870.
    The most common type of shotgun used for this purpose is the manually-operated, slide-action/pump-action type, because it is commonly believed to be less prone to malfunction (particularly when dirty) than semi-automatic designs. Pump-action shotguns are also less expensive than their semi-automatic counterparts. Even so, semi-automatic shotguns such as the SPAS-12 and Benelli M1014 are currently seeing service in NATO-aligned armed forces. The Mossberg 590A1 is currently the pump-action of choice for US armed forces and has seen service with other militaries.

    Where is this information from? They haven't made the SPAS-12 since 2000 and it wasn't ever in the U.S. inventory as far as I know. The "Shotgun, 12-Gage, Remington, M870, MK1, Riot" NSN 1005-00-143-8509" is still in service.

    Never mind, it's from wikipedia, that explains it.
