    I've owned a 870 and 1100 for over 30 years- the old Remington's always performed well for me. I don't ever remember a jam in either gun. The 870 is a tack driver with slugs-it has killed many Whitetails out to 152 yards(nice 8 point thru the heart).

    Now the newer ones.....we can debate how good they are.

    Unless I'm bird hunting in grizzly country, I'm not lugging around a shotgun. But if I had to defend against a bear, the 870 would be on the short list. A big old rifled slug is just devastating. I suppose if the opportunity arises to hunt in grizzly country, and I hope it does, I will have my primary rifle and my .44 mag Ruger loaded with the biggest hard cast bullets I can find. That and a little common sense, precaution and some bear spray should do.

    I too own both of these and have never had a problem.
