    I definitely agree with you. I was not entirely thrilled about the ghost ring sight on the A1 I bought. It takes a little more practice to match the acquisition speed with the ghost rings versus a bead, but it isn't too terrible. I like the idea of that tritium sight. A cousin of mine has one on one of his 870's, and it is pretty slick.

    And now for something completely different:

    How 'bout a cheap side-by-side? A "coach gun"?

    That would be something different. Any particular ideas? I've seen a couple different offerings from Stoeger, in particular their Coach Gun and their Double Defense. I've always loved side-by-sides, but I may reserve that for the purchase after this, even though it's tempting .

    If he could find a used one for a good price absolutely. Put some shells on the stock and it's ready for almost anything you need a shotgun to do.

    You've already got a 590 for HD.

    The SxS will "feed" any shell you want unlike a pump. It will also be shorter overall. You can break it in half for easy storage in three pieces if you like. It looks less "tactical" should you use it outside the home. It's an easy gun for a non-gun enthusiast to use if need be.

    But even a cheap sxs isnt that cheap. If your lucky you may find a used Rossie or Steven's or Stoeger for under $300.

    For any shotgun use other than fighting off multiple armed assailants I prefer a double. (Preferably with double triggers)

    Well, I believe I have made my decision. I had no idea that Benelli's Nova and Supernova barrels were interchangeable with their Supernova Tactical. I've always heard good things about their Supernova and Nova tactical, so I have decided to go with that and then down the road buy a 28" barrel from Benelli for waterfowl hunting and the occasional trap and skeet shooting (going with the Comfortech, non-pistol grip model). I would for sure add a two round extension tube, and another Surefire. The only dilemma I have is deciding between the Supernova Tactical with the ghost ring sights, or their open rifle sights. It would be a few months before I were to buy a 28" barrel. Plus in the meantime, along with the majority of the time, its primary use would be home defense and for use on the farm. Just mainly curious as to whether or not I should go with the ghost rings due to the fact that the 28" barrel would not have the higher front sight post for use with the ghost rings.

    Wouldn't ghost rings pretty well eliminate the shotgun from waterfowl hunting and the occasional trap and skeet shooting?
