I am very partial to Benelli, hence my finding this site, and I am looking at buying a new single purpose shotgun for home protection.
I hunt with my Nova, M1Super90, and SBE - and had nothing but fun and good times with them. A couple of years ago I was given a Remington Marine Magnum as part of a trade (18" Nickle-coated, 6+1 cyl-choke). Shot it twice for fun - it worked fine.
Here I am looking at a home protection gun and thinking I already have this Remington - but then I thought to get the Nova Tactical for two reasons. First, its manual-of-arms is exactly that of my hunting Nova, and two, the I like the magazine cut-off (which the 870 lacks). Also, that Marine Magnum 870 is "bright", it is matte nickle, but still nickle.
I am getting a Nova but am wondering if I am making too big a deal of the finish and magazine extention. Someone knock me off the fence here.
Thanks for all your advice and comments.
