I'm not a shotgun type of guy but I know there value especially in a ban state where everything not in a wood stock is an " a-salt rifle". With that, Ive picked up a few used 500s & 870s at dirt cheap prices for "Bro guns" . All needed some minor work & cleaning up but after buying & testing with some cheap, bulk 12 ga all worked fine. Packed up in case with a sling, cable lock, ammo, and a copy of the manual in zip bag and off they went to friends and family in need. I've lent out two of them during "Iffy times" and one never came back which is fine as it was my cousin. Sandy taught me alot about bro guns and people as a bunch of experienced people mostly pistol folks asked me for "something better" but freaked out when offered an AR.
