    Well guys thanks for all the advice I took the pt111 to the show today sold it and 400 rounds of ammo to a guy for $375. Walked around looking for a Coach gun none to be had so I settled on a Mossy 500 with a pistol grip (before you yell at me I have a new stock on the way) out the door $360 NIB. Then a box of 00 buck $29 not bad for a $14 day. Almost turned bad the wife fell in love with a Kimber ultra carry ss $875. Her birthday is 8-10 might just have to get it for her.

    Well I have a PT 111 and carry it alot, and can't see parting with it (that's just me). But for shotty's I modified an 870 rem. and it is quit nice for my household protection. Wife is good with it. Good luck. :-)

    If your wife may have to use that shotty one day you would do well to consider an autoloader in 20 Guage. The main reason I use a 12 is because it's what we use at work, so that makes training on my own time easier.

    I have several Mossbergs and a Stoeger and like them all. If you get a Mossberg, some of the newer 500 and the 88 have a fixed fore grip so if you plan on modifying it or adding accessories, keep that in mind. I think the 500A still comes with a action slide and seperate fore grip. The others can be modified you just need to change out the new one piece with the older style action slide/nut and what ever grip you want.

    I noticed you said tricked, in personal experience, unless your in my line of work tricked can acually be a damper. I owe many a thanks to my moss 500, and the only upgrades i have on it are a choke and a strobing LED. Simple is good, and low prices never always mean bad quality. My 870 is 20 yrs old, never a problem. My 500 has seen about 5000 3 in mags, never a problem. I trust my life to either when im home.

    My idea of a tricked out gun has nothing to do with goofy bolt ons.

    870 gets my vote.

    +1 on keeping it simple. I like a good ol' pump shotgun. I bought a pistol grip from ATI ($18.99) and am looking for a short barrel. This is my hunting shotty and doubles as HD when not out for a hunt.

    870 or a Mossy 500/590...all solid performers.

    Nice choice. I changed my P/G to the Knoxx (Blackhawk) Breacher's Grip. I could shoot that all day. Also if you notice the 4 set screws on top of the receiver, UTG makes a rail that fits those perfectly. I found mine on e-bay and mounted an inexpensive LED light on the rail.

    I read where the only difference between the 870P and the 870 is the P version uses the same people all the time to assemble the guns. The 870 is more of an assembly line gun where the folks may be building 870's one day and semi autos the next.
    No parts difference.
    Am I wrong?

    All good choices discussed here. I was going to go for one of those pumps, but ended up getting a a good deal on a semi-auto. So, my shottie is a Rem 11-87 with ghost ring on a short barrel (it's either 18.5" or 21"; I've seen both listed in various specs, but I haven't actually taken the tape measure to it...).
