Remington 870 shotgun is used for target practice, hunting, competitive shooting, and home defense. Although there are many different versions of the Remington 870, one of the most popular versions is the Remington 870 Express Combo. This shotgun is suitable for virtually all kinds of shooting.
As you know, I am a very active competitive shooter. I mostly participate in practical shotgun shooting matches such as the IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation). I have used the Benelli Supernova in competitions but decided to go back to the Remington 870 this year. The long 28-inch barrel is perfect for that purpose. It has replaceable chokes and the barrel is long enough for all types of targets. I am going to use the short barrel for home defense and the tactical shotgun for shooting matches.
