      That's what I have beside my bed too PH, only loaded with 2-3/4" magnum Nicole plated #4's. My 870 only holds 6 though. Doesn't have the extended tube.

        We have both rifle and shotgun/muzzleloader zones. Where I live and I want to have my bases covered. And I figure why the hell knot. Sometime I get the proverbial wild hair. I already have a defensive shot gun. Have two super mags. Thought what the hell. I may go ahead make a 20 [email protected] a slug gun. But I bought them for my grandsons so I don’t really want to use them. Guess I will have to buy another one for me. It would sit a lot your right but if the opportunity comes up I don’t want to be empty handed. And there is public ground close to me that opens a few days a year that doesn’t require a permit. And it’s shotguns of black powder. And I figure a pump would be well suited for the hunting it’s all very thick.

          That’s what stays in my maverick 88 8 rounds next to my ar pistol. And my carbine and several loaded pistols. Loaded in the safe. I only leave one loaded out no kids in the house.

            We've got a very unsafe house for kids with loaded firearms hidden in various spots. We don't babysit the great grandkids so there's never unsupervised children in the home. However, I do a safety put-away before family gatherings at Christmas.

              20 years ago, I caught a good sale on 00 and purchased 140 rounds. Short of an end-of-the-world event, there's no way I'll ever shoot it all. So, I've given some to family and friends and still have plenty.

                I did the same thing years ago and do the same before family gatherings myself.

                  Thinking of making dedicated slug gun. Trigger work and all.

                  I want eliminate the slop between the receiver and the barrel.

                  I only know of two ways. Epoxy or drill and thread with a couple of screws or set screws.

                  I know I could buy a bolt slug gun, don’t want one.

                  Has anyone tried any of these. I’ve seen it done never tried it. I figure epoxy is the easiest to get back to normal if I screw it up.

                  thought ideas suggestions.

                      You can build up the bbl hood/flange and magtube area w tape for tight fit. Not too many layers/ tight or tape will rip. Tap bbl on w wooden block and then leave it together til after season.
                      I used Kapton tape from work. Being a smoothbore I dunno if it really helped as I tried only one slug (bought a bunch on closeout) so was gonna run it w em no matter what.

                      Last rifled rig needed nothing to shoot 1.5" at 100 yds. Trigger job and drill and tap receiver and was good to go.

                      High comb stock was used.
