The answer is 870, the answer was always 870.

I keep an Ithaca Model 37 M&P pump shotgun (long time favorite of the LAPD) loaded, too. Nothing wrong with the 870 either, though.

Similar….Glock 23 with an LA police gear brand light. And a VP40 12 gauge. 5 round mag.

Colt 1911 did the longest stink (briefly a P 35).

Now my nightstand rig is an HK P30L



Finally, it is impossible to discuss "generic gun" w/o mentioning Ruger. If one wants all around I would pick G20 with "hunter barrel" which if I recall correctly is 6 inches long. One advantage of G40 is ability to have MOS which is nice option in this caliber (10x25).

I actually have a pair of them. Never tried shooting through an engine block, yet. But George said it would.

I used to have one of those from a State Trooper auction, pull the trigger and pump away. What a pain to disassemble.

Bought mine in the 1980s. Other than removing the barrel, I've never had need to disassemble it.

11 round 870 pump 12 in the back too, little green fiber glowing bead looking back at me, if you guys load for a 12 gauge, 12 [36 cal] 000 buckshot pellets will sit in four nice rows of three in the clear 2-3/4" Fiocchi hulls, i cast em at 22 BHN alloy, harder than a whores heart, that's a hell of a payload on the 2-3/4" hull.

My first shotgun was a 16 gauge model 37. As a 12 or 13 year old, I took that sucker apart right down to springs and pins, just to see how it worked. I was greatly impressed by the elegance of design, the way so much happened in such a small volume. Load and eject through the same port…what a great shotgun.

It is slightly modified copy of Remington 17. It is hard to believe, but people pay more for Remington 870 then an Ithaca Model 37/87. There are many ignorant people out there that can not tell high quality and value when they see it.

Italians make very nice 2&1/4" SG shot shells with six pellets per cartridge. The overall length varies depending on shell crimp type (star crimp shells are little shorter). These offer good blend of stopping power and low recoil offering better followup shots. Do not buy stupid shorter shells because they will not cycle from magazine in repeating shotguns.

Those LAPD guns from late 60s with standard length magazine tube were really nice handling guns about 6,5lb for 12ga 18,5 inch barrel. Original pad was vented type about 1/2" thick, Jostam brand I think.
