Hickok45 Shoots an American Classic, the Remington 870 Pump Shotgun

Hickok45 shoots the Remington 870 pump shotgun and discusses this American classic that was once the king in field, marsh and camps.

Hickok45 shoots the Remington 870 pump shotgun and gives a rundown on the history of this great gun that is still a mainstay for shotgun sales in the U.S. and Canada.

I read once that the 870 pump was the best-selling shotgun and could be found in fields, blinds, boats and woods across America. In its heyday, this was true and it was the leading pump gun before the rise of automatic shotguns.

My first shotgun buy was an 870 Express and while I typically hunt waterfowl with another shotgun, I still take out the 870 every once in awhile. Its simplicity and tough design are a joy to shoot and it is like an old familiar friend. It still sells well and is often called a camp gun, to have handy around those favorite wilderness spots, when outdoorsmen head out.

To check out an awesome pump shotgun design that has stood the test of time have a look at Remington.
