    At long last, I have it. I bought it over the weekend at a large pawn and gun shop sort of near to where I live. The gun is a Remington 870 Express Magnum. It was used and didn't come with a spare barrel, it only has the super long one, which I dont really care as I dont see a need for another. Just thought I would LYK, and I suppose I will have to get around to changing my signature sometime soon!

    Congrats!

    My first gun (the first one I purchased when I turned 18, anyway) was an 870 Express HD. Listen to chris in va, and go make some noise.

    That's great, now buy a big gunsafe to keep it in because not only should you these days, these things tend to reproduce. I started my collection with a $25 bolt action 12 ga. and now getting ready for retiremen,t I've reduced my collection to 85 pieces that I can't live without.
