I bought this shotgun several months ago through Buds, and am now researching for one suitable for my sister-in-law to purchase.
In a nutshell, I'm completely satisfied with this 870 Express model for applications in home security, and short range deer hunting. I've shot several 2 inch 50 yard 4 shot groups with Rem Sluggers through this weapon. I'd be confident with it to 75 yards+. The improved cylinder bore on this model works well with Fosters.
I favor 1-Buck through this shotgun when being used for home security...that stuff is "rude"... 5 rounds of it should be plenty. I should note that we live in a very rural environment...
For the money, this Rem model is an excellent, very flexible choice, and is suitable for upgrading to the owner's taste.
I do have a couple 20 gauge shotguns around which are better for small game hunting.
