Ditto, you got 12 days left find the biggest diamond engagement ring that you can afford, and even time to find a good location to drop knee to propose.

Must haves? Depends on what you want to do with it. Straight out the box it is a great shotgun. I have the some gun, bought it maybe 3 months ago. Love shooting Remington "Sluggers", 2 3/4" slugs. I have put a SppedFeed pistol grip stock, a hogue forearm, and a Tacstar side saddle on mine.

But it is still a great shotgun just the way it is.

Definately sounds like you got a keeper of a girfriend. Congrats on the new 870.

Sweet. Load up on some buckshot and get out there to train with it. Scatterguns are a ton of fun to shoot and they make awesome CQB weapons to boot.

A keeper. I'd love my wife to be into guns like me. But, at least she tolerates my addiction to a point. On a good note....she bought me ammo for christmas.

She's a keeper. Go buy yourself a couple cases of 00 buck to break it in right.

Great gun. If you intend to use if for home defense, then it's good to go as-is. Keep it stock. Pistol grips and other "cool" stuff are not necessary and clutter the gun. However, if you intend to go hunting, then you'll want to get a long barrel specific for that purpose.
