The Remington 870 Tactical Shotgun is one of the must dependable shotguns on the market. For home defense and close defense it is a must have gun. I have shot this many times and it’s never misfires. The ATI takes the Remington 870 Tactical to another level. This is the shotgun used the most in the Police departments around the Country. One other thing I want to point out is that when everyone was looking for ammo in the stores there was always shotgun shells for sale.
This is why I purchased this one even tho I owned one older model Remington 870 which I updated with the added ATI System.

Excellent review, every area covered. I have considered one of these, but recently have also seen some very nice Stevens defense-type 12 ga. for under 300.00 US, which is quite attractive in itself.
Thanks for posting this.April 19, 2014 at 1:28 am #9578
Jayman, The Remington 870 to start is $400 the ATI cost $80 but remember you do not need to add the ATI at the beginning, I didn’t. I purchased the Remington 870 fist.April 19, 2014 at 1:56 am #9583
870’s are great guns, but if you find a Mossberg 500 that looks like it fits your needs don’t be scared to buy it either. Both makes are durable good guns.
One issue with all pump guns when firing and trying to be fast on the next shot is short stroking the action to the rear. The spent shell doesn’t eject creating a stove pipe. Be certain to bang the pump back before you stroke it forward. If you create a stove pipe, open the action then use the same hand to clear the shell by swiping rearward. Then close the action and fire.April 19, 2014 at 2:03 am #9584
Thanks – good info. Will have more to think about now!April 19, 2014 at 2:16 am #9592
1974, Agree the two best for the price shotguns are Remington 870 and Mossberg 500. Also they are the two that have the most options to upgrade(accessories)April 19, 2014 at 2:43 am #9602
Sold my 870 upland model in 20g some time ago, but still have a Mossberg made for Sears under the name New Haven. Old timer with a polly choke. Only use it for turkeys. Might be pressed into SD in a pinch.April 19, 2014 at 3:11 am #9617
Mossberg is it a 12g or 20g? I found that the ammo for the 20g was harder to find but 12 g was all over the place, everyone had it. I have a Remington 870 that I just updated it with the ATI so I have two. I thing that in an SHTF 80% will be close shots so a good shotgun will help. My FAL .308 will be for the long shots and hunting.April 19, 2014 at 3:32 am #9623
12g with funky camo I painted on the whole thing. The dog don’t mind it atall tho.April 19, 2014 at 3:39 am #9628
1974, Oh that is good, the one that you shot will not know the color of the shotgun anyway.April 19, 2014 at 2:54 pm #9686
I want one!April 19, 2014 at 3:46 pm #9691
wildartist, Thank you, I love this shotgun for home defense it is great.April 19, 2014 at 8:37 pm #9762
Possibly one of the best add-ons to a shotgun is a side saddle. Since a shotgun is relatively low capacity, the ability to carry more ammunition on the firearm itself could be a life saver, especially if it’s used in a self defence role where you just grab it and go.
Another key part of the shotgun is the ability to change what round you’re about to shoot (tactical reload). If you have your gun filled with buckshot, and the side saddle has slugs, you can throw one of those slugs in the pipe if you need it (or any combination of ammo change up).
A good “combat” pump shotgun should be owned by everyone who can get one.

Mr. Red, Agree that you do need a side saddle, or a shotgun shell belt to be able to change the round you are using.
A good shotgun is needed in an SHTF.April 28, 2014 at 2:02 am #11307
