Yup. A "bro" who is a reasonably reliable family friend is ok with pistols (former deputy from NY) and familiar with ARs, etc enough to be handed one and trusted. A few months pre Harvey he inquired about a serious long gun. He lives in an apt. Older guy, early 40s. No hunting, no major training or competition in his future and limited budget. A used 870 being upgraded piece by piece is in his immediate future. At the time, 4 LFers were there so he got to see a 28" Benelli, a 870P, an Archer Kanon and a 22" multigun Remington Versamax side by side. Hes familiar with pumps from his past and for typical defense stuff, the shotgun will serve him well.
I'm not specifically buying stuff for the purpose but i have at least GI slings on anything I'd conceivably arm some bros with. And most pistols have at least one or two holsters.
