Giving you the same precision, performance, and dependability as the proven 870 Wingmaster, the Remington 870 Express 20 Gauge w/26" Barrel Shotgun is a value-priced workhorse. This durable gun pairs the proven 870 action with a receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for maximum strength and reliability. The silky smooth twin action bars prevent binding and twisting so that you'll always have the chance to get off a second shot. This pump action sports non-reflective black matte metalwork and a no-frills satin finish hardwood stock and forend. Comes with a 3" chamber and 4 + 1 capacity. The 26'' vent rib barrel features a Rem choke and front bead sight.

I got my son the same gun for almost the same purpose. You can either spend 499 dollars on a Remington combo youth gun or you can just shoot the slug, but it would be less accurate/ far or get a fully rifled shot gun barrel alone. But if you live in a certain state, you can use buckshot on deer.
At 25 yards I couldn't get a single pellet out of 20 to even hit a standard size poster board with 3 in Remington #2 & #3 bucket shot with a full choke in it and extra full Remington choke in. Has anyone else had this problem?
Same as with any gun that's subjected to inclement weather, as long as you make sure to break it down and oil it it will be fine. I had the youth 20 ga. for about 8 years and hunted with it a lot in snow and rain...it never rusted on me because I took care of it. If you just throw it in the safe/case and never oil it, it will rust, as will any gun. But if you make sure to maintain it, the 870 is the most reliable shotgun on the market.
Ive never had a problem with it getting wet. Ive fired shells that were submurged in water aswell as getting it a little wet in the rain and she fired fine. Just make sure to clean her out real well afterwards.
