Remington tactical shotguns are rugged, ultra-dependable and continually evolve as they’re called to serve in new, increasingly demanding environments. Built on our legendary pump action that’s become the gold standard for high-risk applications, the Model 870™ Express Tactical with a quick pointing 18 1/2″ barrel and includes our extended ported Tactical Rem Choke. It packs a full 7 rounds of 2 3/4″ or 3″ 12-gauge firepower with the factory installed 2-shot extension.
The Model 870™ Express® Tactical with XS® Ghost Ring Sights is optimized for rapid target acquisition and precise shot placement with the XS blade sight and XS Ghost Ring sight rail (fully adjustable for windage and elevation), which accepts optics and sight systems as well. Both models have black synthetic stocks and fore-ends with sling swivel studs. Receivers are drilled and tapped.

This is no hunting shotgun. This is made to kill people. A military and law enforcement weapon. Note the short barrel. Both my shotguns have barrels longer than 28 inches.
On the stock Aaron Alexis carved words “My ELF weapon.” ELF stands for “extremely low frequency.” He also carved the words “Better off this way.”
As a hunter familiar with shotguns I wanted to find out what kind of 12 gauge shells he used to kill so many people from so far away with such a short barrel. Bird shot, BB, Double OO, slugs, ELF rounds? An hour of Google searches found me no information on that. Anyone who can find that info please comment.
