An 870 is an excellent weapon. You will be well armed for anything in a HD situation with that gun. Congrats.

Trust your instincts... stick with the non-gimmicky stuff. When you do get around to checking her out, satisfy yourself with what your buckshot pattern spread is at 5 yards, 10 yards, 20 yards... I think you'll find it enlightening.

Remington 870 loaded with low recoil buckshot? Yep, it is an excellent choice for home defense duty. The biggest thing I would recommend adding to your shotgun is a flashlight. Unless you keep your lights on 24/7 or wear night vision goggles, it's a necessity.
The side saddle is a good add-on as well. I've got a tac-star sidesaddle on my Mossberg 590, but I'm thinking about removing it. It does throw the balance of the gun off a little bit. If you want to keep extra ammo on your gun, you might want to look into a Speedfeed stock as well. They make at least two models that hold 4 extra shells inside the stock.
