Proud Owner of a Remington 870 Tactical 12 ga shotgun.

Was originally $429 at Big5
Sale for $389
$30 rebate from Remington
$359 + tax.

Then picked up the BlackHawk SpecOps II recoil reducing stock from Brownells.com
$100 regular price
$15 rebate from Blackhawk
Use code DSR at checkout for Free Shippping, no tax out-of-state to CA
$85 brand new.

ANYWAYS - I'm pretty stoked. Right now I'm getting my routine/habit down for picking up my shotgun with my right hand (at the forend), twisting it, and cupping my left hand around the trigger guard to hit the safety... before getting the shotgun into a comfortable shooting position. It aint easy being a lefty =)

What an awesome friggen hobby. As much as I loved playing "guns" when i was little... I never really got into it until now. You'll be seeing more of me here. Got the invite from SDQuattro ... peace!

Welcome and congrats! I just picked up an 870 as well, after selling my first one a few months ago.

Congrats!
Shotguns are so much fun :)

Be sure to keep mindful of where you're pointing the barrel. I can't quite figure out what you mean by the whole twisting thing but it *sounds* like you might be sweeping the muzzle unintentionally.
