The short-barreled non-NFA Remington TAC-14 shotgun was a success and now Remington introduced semi-auto shorty.

Magazine tube extensions for 20 Gauge Remington 870 shotgun
If you own a 20 gauge Remington 870 then you may be interested in magazine tube extensions for your shotgun. These extensions basically add extra rounds to your shotgun’s magazine tube. The extension tube gets mounted right underneath the barrel, which is where the magazine tube and fore-end are located. A normal magazine tube on a 20 gauge Remington 870 can hold four rounds of ammunition. So if you were to add a 2-round extension tube to the end of it then it could fit six rounds of ammunition instead of 4 rounds. This is a lot of ammunition for a shotgun to shoot without having to reload it. The differences between the tubes have to do with the number of extra rounds they can give you and what gauge shotgun you have. The 12-gauge extension tube with two or three rounds for the Remington 870 is the most common and it is priced at about $75.
I was told one story, I don’t know if it’s true. One shooter had a bad habit practicing with live rounds at home. First shot was at TV, second at the wall and third shot at the wall resulted a divorce… So, always practice with dummy rounds, it is better to put all live rounds in a safe or in another room, so you have no chance mixing live and dummy rounds.

MEC stands for Mayville Engineering Company. Ever since 1955, they’ve been designing high quality shotgun shell reloaders for the average shotgun owner to use. Today the brand name is known by almost everyone familiar with shotguns. The MEC Sizemaster is one of the company’s best single stage reloaders available. It has a revolutionary resizing chamber, an automatic primer feed and creates six point and eight point crimps. The crimp starter has automatic rotation and will realign the crimp that originally came from the factory. There is also a flip-flop measure that allows pellet containers and powder to be put in and taken out without any spillage. Whether you are a novice shotgun shell reloader or an expert, the MEC Sizemaster shotgun ammo reloading press is perfect for either person who wants to reload their empty shotgun shells with pellets.
The MEC Sizemaster is best known for being able to resize collets and return the bases into the same quality that originally came out of the factory. It doesn’t matter if the shells have steel heads, brass heads, or a low or high base. The MEC Sizemaster is available for all the most popular shotgun shell gauges such as 12, 16, 28, 20 and 10. Make sure you pick the right Sizemaster to accommodate the gauge you need or else the primer feeder won’t be able to do its job on the machine.

WARNING: These sidesaddles will not work with field length or hunting fore grips. Most tactical fore grips that do not recede past the shotguns receiver when fully cocked back, are the most ideal to run in conjunction with a sidesaddle.

Remington 870 in 20 gauge has less recoil and very popular among smaller shooters, youth and ladies. And good news that it will have almost the same effectiveness when used for home defense.
There are a lot of questions about Remington 870 Express 20 Gauge upgrades. Here is list of the available upgrades for your Remington 870 20 Gauge.
Remington 870 Express in 20 Gauge is reliable shotgun with less recoil. It looks tiny compared to 12 gauge shotgun.
But I really like it and even thinking about buying it for my wife and daughter. 12 gauge recoil is not very comfortable for them.
