Yes, that is why I have my 590 with accu-choke system. THOUGH I think the OP was looking at an 870 with an actual slug rifled barrel.Get a Mossberg 590 variant instead.
I have (and have had) 870s. They are fine. But the safety and slide release button are in inferior locations compared to the Mossberg. For those reasons alone, the Mossberg is a better gun.
Also, if possible, get screw-in chokes. You can always screw in a cylinder bore.
I will eventually get rid of my 870 and get a Mossberg. I just missed a good deal on one in the classifieds a couple days ago.
