    I recently went through this decision and bought the 20 ga with a 28" barrel. Started with the 20 ga because I felt more comfortable with my wife learning to use it. I liked the long barrel because we also want to start sporting clays. PHX has a great program to start women out with clays. Anyway, on to my question.

    I was told that an 18.5 - 20" barrel would be no problem to find. I find all kinds of options for the 12 ga. Why am I having so much trouble finding a HD barrel for the 870 20 ga?

    Because using a 20ga for self defense is no where near as common as 12. They are out there, but you'll probably need to order one. Not many local places are going to stock a 18" barrel for a 20.

    Should have been more specific but I have tried to look at the Remington site and online (more than locally). All I can find are rifled barrels. It may be a bit obvious but I'm new at this. Any links for an online source?

    I have seen several post about 20 ga 00 buck. Who makes it. How many pellets does hold.
