Gotta love the Boondock Saints court room scene.

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Jayne, how many weapons you plan on bringing? You only got the two arms.
Jayne Cobb: I just get excitable as to choice- like to have my options open.

Most recent 870 in film: Snitch http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0882977/
Grand finale is a sort of Mad Max/Road Warrior tribute--cartel gunmen with various handguns and smgs and so on vs. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson with an 870.

Best shotgun scenes:
1972 The Getaway http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068638/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

1992 Unforgiven http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105695/

That may have been a custom piece made specifically for the film, but there have been a handful of real, functioning 3- and 4-barrel shotguns made over the years.

Four-barrel:

There is a really good New Zealand film Utu or "vengeance/revenge" about one of the last British colonial settler/allied Maori vs. hostile Maori wars in the 1870s. There are mostly three-band Enfields and Sniders and Spencers, but a white European settler out to avenge his wife builds a four-barrel shotgun, but they are all side-by-side.

I'll tell you what:
As for an actual four-barrel shotgun... If we could scrape together some machinery using modern polymers and modern casting// machining methods along with a whole bunch of venture capital and some clever marketers, and we could start building the *new and improved* Winchester Liberator project, in, say, 20-gauge or 16-gauge with a shoulder stock and forward pistol grip with rails as an ultimate sort of HD shotgun and we could sell them like hotcakes...Or Glock handguns... Or something.

Winchester Liberator had four barrels, originally diamond configuration, later two stacked SxSs, a simple double-action only trigger mechanism to fire each barrel in turn, with a top mounted break open latch... It was designed to arm and equip indigenous/peasant farmers in the underdeveloped world as anticommunist irregulars or auxiliaries, but never came to fruition. Nothing like the Kalashnikov, which was the all-time peasant/rebel/guerrilla weapon for the late 20th and 21st century... Still, a neat concept!

I've been on a bit of a Top Gear kick lately, and was pleased to see a Remington 870 (which appears to have a 20" barrel and a +3 extension; possibly a 26503 Express model) accompanying Jeremy Clarkson & James May on their attempt to be the first group to drive to the magnetic north pole. Even though it rode on the outside of the truck, the 870 seemed to hold up just fine to temperatures in the negative forties and Clarkson's driving.

Charles Bronson in 'Death Hunt' held the trigger back on his Winchester Mdl 12 and pump shot several rounds off at some misdirected posse members. That's one of the features I like on some earlier SG's.............pump shooting.

The old Ithaca 37s could be slam-fired like that as well. It's a fun thing to do at the gun range, but there isn't much practical use for it.
