    That is a solid choice for a first firearm. Like Izzy said, the addiction has just begun to take hold. That may be your first, but it will not be your last!! :thumbup:

    Ah yes, that was the first new gun I bought myself after turning 18. I already had some inherited guns but the 870 was the first I bought myself. Days later a Ruger 10/22 followed.

    First of many...
    Congrats!

    If you're open to suggestions for the next few..
    I'd recommend:
    a Ruger Mk III pistol - everyone should have a fun .22 pistol
    a .22LR semi auto rifle (10/22 or Marlin mod 60 or Sig 522:)
    a semi auto defensive caliber handgun - too many options. Choose what works best for you.
    After that you'll be well on your way.
    God help you if you catch the black rifle disease!!

    Congrats! That's one of the top five firearms you should have.

    Congrats David! Good to see you finally picked it up :thumbup:

    For those of you who don't know, David works with me. We've been talking guns since I started and I reaffirmed his thought that a shotgun would be a great first gun. I'm really looking forward to getting some trigger time soon!
