so i went to the fun store today and i was originally going for a mossburg 500 but instead i came home with a remington 870. i just liked the feel better
Great choice IMO the better of the two the 870 will outlast the Mossberg.:D
You may later want to add a Speed Feed stock it beats loose rounds hanging and slipping on the butt stock.;)

Way to go, Nix! I have shot the 870, and I liked it. I am a Mossberg guy, but no sour feelings towards Remington. I see you have a stock shell holder-that's a good way to protect it from nicks and scratches.

I keep wanting to buy another shotgun, but my 870 just does everything I want it to do, and it does it time after time. I really feel like I lucked out because mine fit's me to a T, and it feels like a part of my body when I shoot it.
I have tried other shotguns, and I thought they were OK, but I am an 870 man through and through.

There is one of these at the local pawn shop I have been eye-ing. Congrats!

One thing I would recommend is that you change out the front grip for an LE style if you plan to use it for HD. From the looks of the mag tube, that's probably what you bought it for.
