Hello. Sorta new to shotguns. I have a few old ones from when I was a kid hunting, and a hand me down or two. Other than a number of handgun classes that’s pretty much the extent of my gun experience.
I’ve been on the lookout for a good LE turn for a quite a while. Wanted something perfect for HD. Umm, I did mention I live in Memphis right😉
Well, I stumbled across a great deal. One of our local departments turned in all of their older 870Ps after receiving new equipment. I was able to score two very nice ones for next to nothing. They appear to be LE typical. That is, a little rough on the outside, haven’t been shot much, and in need of cleaning. One has a true 18.0” cyl barrel. The other has the 18.5” imp cyl. Both shoot great. My plan is to make one of them into a basic tactical gun. Hope to get into some local classes with it soon to learn more. The other will probably remain the way it came as a duty weapon. I ordered a few items from JD. He’s been very helpful in selling me a Wilson 2 shot extension, SBE follower, shell holder, safety etc. Scored a streamlight TL and Knox stock over the holidays also.  
My profession is 30 yrs in the airplane business. Fix em. Fly em. All that stuff.

Glad you joined.  We need more people who want to keep the shotgun alive as the "Girly men" who can not deal with recoil have pushed the country away from shotguns for defense.   This of course is good for us because it has helped to keep shotgun prices down and flooded the market with used like new shotguns that the "Girly Men" bought during the Tactical Shotgun fad and have now traded in for new toys.  As you know and found there are a lot off good deals out there in gun shops and pawn shops.
