Thanks for the compliments, guys....Sheepdog, it will hold 6+1.....the 870 will not take a 6 rd sidesaddle, so (thanks to you), I am going to find a bandolier that will hold a "few" rds.....oh, and btw: I am ready to do what is necessary, should it come to that point.....

...she doesn't come with the bandoleer: https://www.galatiinternational.com/a/G ... oleer.html

they also have a shotgun sling that holds 15 rounds...got both...put the sling on my .20 ga Mossy and the bandoleer's with the Winch 1300.....inexpensive and well-made...quick shipping....might wanna try 'em....

sidesaddle: http://www.kitterytradingpost.com/produ ... rodid/8823

6-round sidesaddle: http://www.arizonagunrunners.com/Produc ... ories.html

attitude: you supply that!!!

shell sling: http://www.galatiinternational.com/Merc ... Code=GLS15

tactics: http://articles.directorym.net/Pump_it_up-a907504.html

a differing opinion: Because of the shotgun's low magazine capacity, ammunition storage is also recommended. I like the side-saddle holder made by Tac-Star; it mounts to the receiver and holds six rounds securely on the gun. Buttstock ammo carriers are available and can be had in rigid form or as strap-on nylon pouches. Of these, Blackhawk makes a good one. The least desirable are the bandolier-style slings with cartridge loops built onto them because the weight of ammo dangling from your gun can disturb your aim. They are, however, better than nothing.

With the proper preparation and training, and with modification when appropriate, the shotgun should and will continue to be a valuable tool for law enforcement for years to come.

Was it used? :?
Yes, but very little. The previous owner bought it new at the pawn shop, kept it 2 or 3 months, and then traded it in on a handgun.....
