Mississippi Highway Patrol Chooses Remington Model 870PTM Shotguns
Remington Arms Company, LLC., (“Remington”), is pleased to announce that the Mississippi Highway Patrol again chose the Remington Model 870 Police Magnum as their department-issued shotgun.
“The Remington Model 870 is rugged, reliable, easy to operate and accurate. We are proud to say that all of our 600 troopers now have a Model 870 shotgun in their patrol car and everybody is certified with it. No need for cross training, since every trooper now has the same shotgun,” said Phillip Hemphill of the Mississippi Highway Patrol. “When the situation turns bad, our troopers don’t have to worry about their shotgun not performing. That is why we chose the Model 870.”
Since its introduction in 1950, nearly 10 million Model 870 shotguns have been produced. It remains the overwhelming choice for law enforcement divisions due to its historical dependability. Through numerous configurations and variants, the Model 870 platform is used for law enforcement, military applications and sporting purposes in more than 50 countries, including the United States.
