Dave Canterbury on the Remington 870. Not that I needed to be sold on it but still interesting. He talks single shot shotguns a lot for 'the woods' but unfortunately this mythical woods where there are lots of game and no people is just not so. Certainly there are areas with few people but almost none is a stretch. With very few exceptions (off the top of my head rural Alaska, a good chunk of Wyoming and the Dakota's outside of the few cities) the US just has too many people for them, and the resulting security issues not to be a consideration. If you can possibly afford it a pump shotgun is a better all around choice than a single barrel. Anyway a Remington 870 with a long barrel and a short riot barrel is a heck of a combo.

The area in west Texas below Del Rio, and El Paso is a very unpeopled location as well, it gets DARK after the sun goes down is all I'm saying.

Good ol' Remington 870, its an American standard. Your recommendation for long barrel and riot barrel is good - the later made Rem-Choke models worth the expense.

I was going to post this same video as a response to my recent post on the unwarranted hype around the single shot. Not sure why Dave took it down...hopefully it'll be back up.

I'm not exactly sure why you'd want a single shot for "knocking around the woods" but then prefer a pump for everything else. Why not just the pump?

870s are a lot like AR builds and potato chips:
It's very hard to stop after just one.

My favorite started life as a combo package in the late 1980s, and has served through uncounted dove trips, countless rounds of skeet, trap, sporting clays, quite a number of border patrols, and one major riot. The only parallel to a shotgun that will happily go out and bang out 3 rounds of trap and then after a quick barrel change to the short deer barrel with rifle sights stand ready for duty behind the door would be a really well-trained retreiver who moonlights as a yard patrol. The 870 still wins, because you don't have to pick up after it.

My only regret is not having the foreknowledge that Pachmayr would someday go belly up, so that I could have prudently stashed another 3 or 4 of those wonderfully hard-to-lose-grip-on neoprened 870 foreends.

Best Regards,

Aesop, I agree. Wouldn't mind having 2 more stashed away myself. It is good to have goals I guess.

Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to
know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
