The Remington 870 Express Upgrade Build Gun Carry Review

Command Arms Accessories- Remington 870 Express upgrade build.    When you talk to the average guy about shotguns there are two models that generally come up; the Mossberg  500 and the Remington 870. Both are classic, super reliable, time tested pump shotguns. Many years ago I decided I wanted to build a tactical shotgun.  At the time, I wanted an over the top folding stock, due to the location of the safety I chose the 870 express.      If you choose to buy a Remington 870 and feel a tactical transformation could be in the future; I urge you to look for an older gun.

Chad Groening OneNewsNow.com A national defense analyst calls it an outrage that the Obama administration brings in an estimated six Muslim refugees for every one Christian refugee – and relies on the United Nations to scrutinize them.  "Invariably some of these people are going to be radicalized. They have views that are contrary to our culture," says Bob Maginnis, a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council.
