I've got this, the cheap one:
Pump Action Shotgun - Model 870 Express Combos - Remington Shotguns
870 Express, laminated wood stock, 12ga, 26" shot barrel, modified "Rem Choke" tube, 20" rifled slug barrel. I paid just under $400 for the set about 2 years ago. I think other choke tubes are under $20.
My adult shotgunning career is limited to a few pump action models - Remington 870 and 887, Mossburg 500 - any of which I'd be glad to own. The only shotgun I have right now is the 870. I've never handled a Bennelli Nova.
Having one already, I wouldn't buy another. If I didn't have one, yes.
I'm thinking about getting a hinged single or over/under, and an autoloader.
