This thread inspired me to spend the weekend with my 870, who has been feeling a little left out recently. Regrettably, it wasn’t great, so she will be going to the way back of the safe. On Saturday, I took my 870 around my house, and it made me realize that I have bunch of half-walls and corners, in between my bedroom and where I would like to be if something goes bump in the night. As such, in any sort of unlikely situation where I would need it, there is a good chance I’d be holding the 870 at the muzzle (as opposed to the slide). So today at the range, I practiced shooting that way. I couldn’t hit a dang thing. Also, found that if I don’t hold the slide, the slide will go back, and I’ll likely wind up having to eject a good shell to clear everything up (and it will take another critical second). I think I’ll stick to an SBR for now.
