Originally posted by LtJL: I have both. I am left handed, too. I like the 870 police action better, but the Mossberg tang safety is easier to operated than the remngton, at least for a lefty.
I got used to reaching under the trigger guard and pushing off the RH safety of pumps. Then I bought a LH 870...it took a couple of hunting trips to learn if you do that when a quail flushes, the safety is still on. The 500 safety is just in the right place for a whole lot of folks.

If you are well trained and used to an 870, making the transition to a Mossberg will be hard. I've tried the 500/590 over the years and I always go back to my beloved 870. Well actually, these days the 870P is in the safe and I depend on a Benelli M2 tactical, but thats another story.
