    Has anyone had any type of trouble with the 590? I've used the 870 in my profession, however, I really dislike the where the safety and the slide release is located. I was doing some training with other law enforcement officers and had a chance to shoot the 590 and was impressed. I’m currently looking to replace my “retired” wing master 870 to a newer full stock unit.
    Please Advise.

    Maybe it is just the new 590a1 model but 590's for sale to civilians is nothing new. Almost bought one a few years back.
