I have a Remington 870 Express, it is still "stock" and has a modified choke in it right now. I work a lot and My wife and I just moved out to the country (thank goodness) but some times I work an armed site that keeps me out until 1 am or so on Saturday nights. That means that the pistol is with me. I want her to have a gun handy so I put a 00 in the pipe with the safety on and a 00 as the next then a slug, 00, slug. Is leaving the 870 in condition 1 a bad Idea? Should I just leave the tube full and the chamber clear? My wife and I are the only folks who live there so I'm not worried about children or room mates or anything. I was just wondering if anyone had some thoughts or possibly the same problem. The gun is behind the bedroom door.
