Wel lI guess you could say I am new to shotgunning. I am a police officer for a little over a year and my first experience with guns came in the academy. I have always loved guns but never was able to get any. My department uses the remington 870. Love the gun so I bought a new 870 express tactical for myself. Should be picking it up any day now. I look forward to conversing on these boards with all of you.
