Remington 870 On Gun Stories

The Outdoor Channel’s Gun Stories returns to discuss the Remington 870 pump shotgun. It is the best selling shotgun in history with over 10 million sold.

In the battle over which modern pump shotgun is better, I am torn between the 870 and the Mossberg 500/590. With its twin rails, the 870 is smoother and probably more reliable. However, I find the tang safety on the Mossberg more user friendly. My first shotgun, a 12-gauge full choked shotgun made by Savage for a hardware chain, had the tang safety and it could be I just got used to that.

UPDATE: I can’t get the embedded video to play and I’m working on that.

The Downside To Being A Neo-Luddite

Since I rarely watch television at home, I don’t have either cable or a satellite dish. I dropped cable back in the mid-1990s when I thought I was watching too much TV and not reading enough. Given the rise of the Internet, I really haven’t seen a need to change that decision.

However, there are times I wish I did have cable so I could see programs like the one below. I sure wish the Outdoor Channel would make these programs available on a season-long DVD like a lot of other TV producers do.
