    Remington 870 12ga 26" barrel. Synthetic stock.

    I got it, two chokes, a case for it, a case of dove and quail loads, some duck ammo, and several boxes of low-recoil 00 buck for defense for $417.10 out the door at Bass Pro.

    And as much as I dislike buying firearms at BPS, this one was a great experience... it was on sale, and the service wasn't nearly as bad as I'd come to expect. The guy let me fondle at least 20 different guns until I found one I liked.

    And I also played with a Sig compact 1911... SWEET! It's on the "gotta have it" list (right below the AR that just moved down from the "gonna buy it" list).

    What kind of modifications should I make to this? I'm going to order an 18" barrel soon. Are the night sights that are available a good deal?

    And, what do the chokes do? I've got "Full", "IC", and "EM" chokes. Which one do I use for what purpose?

    This is my last gun purchase for quite some time.

    I've got the "assault" weapon in the AK. The sidearm. The long gun. The shotgun. The pistol-caliber carbine. The cheap plinking target rifle.

    Now all I have to do is stock up ammo. I'm thinking 3000 rounds of 7.62x39 loaded into at least 30 30-rd mags (just in case), 500 rounds of low-recoil 00 buck, 2000 rounds of .40, and 1000 rounds of 7.62x54R in at least 50 stripper clips.

    Yes, I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

    You're not even close to being paranoid enough unless you are contemplating how to purchase a quality used, functional Abrahms. :foilhat:

    That's what I was thinking. Didn't you say you couldn't take PP on a date because you didn't have any money? LOL. Poor girl. Don't piss her off, she has a gun.

    Well, after the long phone conversations, and all the IMing and emails and stuff, I think she understands me.

    No, butters.

    Unlike some other members of the forum *coughyoucough* women don't immediately run in the opposite direction at my approach.

    Wow, you must be some sweet talker if she is going to go out with you after you make her play second place to a shotgun.

    :shock:
