The 870 is a very tried and true shot gun that will not let you down. I use an 870 express super mag for hunting and I have never even heard of one being abuse quite like mine and it is still ticking after 6 years of very heavy abuse in the nastiest swamps and woods I can find. It will last forever for what you are doing with it. I don't care what language you speak, the racking of a pump gun sounds the same to everyone. I also disagree with the added time when using a pump. I have been using mine long enough that I can keep up with the automatics any day. Once you become proficient with a pump, it is like second nature.
