Hey guys, proud new owner of an 870, thought I'd share quickly. Bought it used, only had about 25 rounds through it. Stock except for the Speedfeed pistol grip stock and fore-end that the previous owner put on. 18" barrel, 6+1 capacity, stock front bead sight. I bought it originally so I could try my hand at trap shooting, so I was probably going to put the factory stock and fore-end back on and get a 28" barrel, but I kind of like having it around as a scattergun...I may just get another barrel and swap out. The original stock and fore-end are still probably going to go on permanently though.

Some quick pics. I sold my DSLR a little while ago and haven't picked up a point-and-shoot replacement yet, so these are from my phone...sorry. :)

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys at the Cow Palace show this weekend.

you'd be surprised with how well it shoots at the trap range. i've raised some eyebrows with the older crowd a couple of times ;)

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Yeah, I am kind of interested in seeing how it will do. I just don't understand why so many people would think they can't shoot trap well...I mean, if it's got a 28" or longer barrel with the right choke, there shouldn't be any reason it can't perform just like the more dedicated trap guns, right?

Thought I'd update...just got my newest "mod" for it in the mail. Spectre Gear buttstock shell holder; and it was pretty inexpensive. I kept debating back and forth on this as I was looking at a TacStar side-saddle shell holder as well. This shell holder is quite nice though, although I can see where a side-saddle holder would offer a slightly more convenient position to draw shells from for loading into the mag tube; but this does just fine.

And I never get tired of looking at them. Basic black is great!

Haha, I was debating the same thing (sidesaddle or buttstock shell holder). I also, opted for the Spectre Gear holder. I love it!:thumbsup:

Thought I'd update with the new look...I updated the picture gallery thread but forgot about this one. I sold my Speedfeed pistol grip stock and fore-end set in favor of a take-off walnut set from an 870P. I really like the wood furniture on an 870. Loving it so far. It even came with an R3 recoil pad.
