    must be over 18 in for the barrel (muzzle to breach face) and an overall length of over 26 inches for the entire shotgun.
    A "gun free zone" is tyrannies playground.
    I carry a gun to give me options, not a single solution.

    I wanna say it's 18 inches but I'm sure there will be someone with a link posting soon enough.

    I was surprised to find out that Mossberg makes barrels for Remington shotguns. I had an 18.5 cylinder bore with one bead on my 870 and it was perfectly fine

    It's 18" minimum with a 26" overall length minimum. They measure the barrel length by unloading it, closing the bolt and dropping a rod (or a tape) down the bore to the bolt face. Most trim the barrels to 18.5" or more in case the muzzle is damaged and needs a trim.
