    I've already got a .22 LR, 40 Cal XD, .22/410 over under, and an Arisika. Looking for another gun to add to my collection. I'm thinking either an 870 Express or a larger caliber long rifle. Opinions?

    I was actually thinking about a 308, 30-30, or 7mm. As far as long rifles go.

    An AK is always an excellent choice.

    I love my 870 Express combo. I have one from 1986 or 87, it may be the first year they came out? Anyway, the slug barrel is smooth bore and there's also a 28 VRB. I like the newer turkey guns they've got out.

    Take someone out to a nice dinner or something instead? I keed a little bit- cause if you just wanna "add to a collection" seems like you might not really be sure what you want or have a use for it?

    IMHO, Every colection needs a good wheel gun, in either .357, or .44 mag.

    also have had a few 870s and they were all great guns.
    for a pump shotgun, you cant go wrong with a mossberg500 or remington 870. there are a million aftermarket parts for them so you can do pretty much anything you want with them....

    Yot killing, Zombies, really I'd just like another gun and its Christmas time so why not?

    If it was an 870 is mostly be used for skeet shooting with my buddies.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I'd go with an 870/Mossberg 500 or a .357 Mag.

    No worries- I'm not much of a collector, so my handgun and the 870 police in my closet are just tools. Adding more isn't my style...altho I do agree a wheel gun would be pretty BA.

    I'm gonna go with a lever gun (30-30 or 45-70).

    You can trick them out pretty good too.
