The short-barreled non-NFA Remington TAC-14 shotgun was a success and now Remington introduced semi-auto shorty.
Gun sock is a popular and inexpensive way to protect your shotgun during transportation and storage. I’ve bough two socks on Brownells. They are made by SACK UPS company which makes gun socks since 1985.
So, why do you need both long and short socks. I use long sock to transport my gun. Gun sock protects finish of my shotgun and also protects internal parts from dust, sand and dirt. Another good feature is that cotton cloth is treated with silicone and oil that helps inhibit rust. Gun sock will wick moisture away if your shotgun is wet. That is also important in cold weather when you can see condensate on your firearm when you bring it indoors.
Nebo 6109 iProTec RM190 Firearm Flashlight is an affordable flashlight which you can get for your shotgun. It is lightweight and compact, it easily attached to rails. Uses one CR123A battery.
This is inexpensive alternative to Streamlight TLR-1/TLR-2 Flashlight.
It doesn’t look as sturdy as Inforce flashlight or Streamlight TLR flashlight but it costs just $30.
There is a debate and there always will be a debate about whether you should have a sling on your home defense weapon. Some believe a sling on a home defense shotgun or rifle is akin to having a holster for your handgun believing no gun should be without either one. Then others believe a sling will snag on door handles and furniture while you rush to the sound of smashing doors or glass. Before deciding, you should consider what a sling’s actual purpose is and how it may be used in a tactical situation. To be less confusing this article will purposely leave out the uses for slings in a hunting situation.
Unless you are a member of the military or law enforcement, you probably do most of your home and self-defense tactical weapons training in daylight hours. Shotgun and handgun drills are usually conducted on an approved firing range with ample light. Nighttime tactical training has inherent safety issues and live fire exercises are not commonly conducted in darkness at your home.
Custom Firearm Grips from Rat Grips
Rich has posted very useful information about Rat Grips on Remington 870 Forum:
Wanted a new grip for my AR to get betting trigger finger placement, and even the Ergo grip wasn’t enough to stop me wrapping my finger around the trigger completely… so thought I’d try a custom one.

These are plastic pieces that you heat with a heatgun to make them soft and sticky, pop them on your gun and mould to the shape of your hand/cheek.
You’re going to want to use the glove provided. That molten plastic burns like hellfire. And it’s as simple as that. Heat the plastic, stick it on, mould where you want it to go, and voila. The longer you spend, the better it’ll look. Well, it won’t win any beauty awards, but it’ll be damn comfortable!
Not too keen to put it on my lovely Claro Walnut Wingmaster 870, but might interest some people. The pads they do would make a great custom cheek pad.
