    Just one more goofy BATFE law to have contend with.
    Actually blame congress and the NFA rules. Again why the rules are different for rifles than for shotguns makes no sence to me either.

    Are you in a NFA friendly state? If so ........Remington 870 SBS, 14" Rifle Sights. Just add a Plus one mag tube extension and a side saddle.

    For Home Defense I went with the Mossberg. They no longer make the one I purchased it was a special run. I am sure the Remington is a better shotgun, My father had a Remington, but in those days I liked a Savage better. Now I was buying for my self and family, I liked the Mossberg better and purchased it for several reasons. Mostly it felt better to shoulder. I liked the Action function better. I liked the safety on top instead of hidden on the trigger guard a glance tells me On or Off. I have seen others shoot clicks, forgetting to take a safety off dangerous in an emergency. I liked the slide release better. I liked the positive shell lifter better. I did not feel the need for an extension tube. I liked the Look a lot better.
    After years of hunting, I realized that I had taken 5 deer with 5 rounds. One box of shells in 5 years. Other than a few Target rounds. I no longer hunt, but enjoy shooting.
    As I was taught, by my father, and teachers in High School: Be sure of your target, what is behind it, do not fire blindly. If you are in the movies, you can Spray and Pray. For hunting 2 legged or 4 I think the same rules apply. If someone breaks into my house in the middle of the night, I would never fire at sounds, I would be sure of my target.

  5. For the money it is tough to beat the Maverick 88 security model. I bought the 18.5 in. barrel model that has a 6 shot capacity (in 2.75", one less for 3" shells) for right at $200. All parts are fully interchangeable with Mossberg 500s, so I bought a long barrel for hunting. Basically got 2 guns all in for about $350.

    I currently own a Mossberg 500 cruiser and a Rem 870. Very happy with them but the shotgun I used to have, a Browning BPS, was better made than both of them. To me it just felt like a more solid shotgun than the Moss or Rem. Too bad the BPS is limited in the variants offered as well as aftermarket accessories.

    I was kind of intrigued with the Beretta TX4 Storm at last year's SHOT Show.

    Takes a bag full of money to buy it though. And BTW, aftermarket accessories made for Benelli shotguns, such as magazine extension tubes, fit and work on the Tx4 if 5+1 isn't enough.

    OTOH, if spending that much, why not just save a little and opt for the Benelli M2 tactical which many police and military units use since it gives you the flexibility of using 3" shells.

    Or for about $60 more you could just order a Scattergun Technologies Standard Model http://www.wilsoncombat.com/s_standard.htm ($1325 base price) from Wilson Combat that will have most of the tricking out already done to it.

    Will those things fit on my Franchi? The factory will not answer that question, they say they do not know. Sounds to me like I was asking them if the tires from a Ford will fit on a Chevy, they know just not saying. So it is good to read what others with in the field with experience have to say.

    Good judgment comes from experience,
    and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

    I'm pretty sure your Franchi has a 26mm magazine tube.
