Not sure where to post this but I ordered a Mossberg Shockwave Mariner this afternoon. Pics when she arrives. $379 plus transfer.

Went through 25 rounds of 2 3/4" buckshot a couple of days ago and it's a handful! Cool BEAST!

I'd like to hear more about these, been thinking about getting one to play with.I compared the length of a Shockwave and a Mossberg 500 with a pistol grip and a 18.5" barrel, about 1" difference in the two.The SW just looked better with the 14" barrel and the birds head grip.I've watched and read a lot of reviews,but I'd like to hear from people hear that has one or has shot one. Is the birds head grip more comfortable to shoot?

The Raptor grip does also offer what many feel is an ergonomic advantage over standard pistol grip only configuration.


Mainly, that it keeps your wrist in a straight locked position in relation to the rest of your forearm, rather than in an upright position with conventional pistol grip where recoil makes wrist flex backward independent of the forearm. Meaning that recoil is distributed more against entire forearm with elbow being the "hinge point" rather than being concentrated primarily on the wrist as the hinge point.

Have the Mossberg Shockwave, but can't report firsthand for another couple months or so, but will when I can. Can tell you from shooting just a few rounds from a conventional pistol grip in the past, that it was a decisive thanks but no thanks for me.

Thanks, can’t wait to pump off a few rounds. I guess I need to do some research on Imgur to show pics instead of links. Any help appreciated.....

All I did was right click on the pic on imgur site, "copy image location" and paste that into "insert image from url" dialog here. Maybe there's a more direct link there you can drag or paste without the extra step, dunno.

After you upload an image go to all pictures and then click on the one you want to use.  A window should open that looks like the one below and then just click copy direct link.  Then click on insert other media in the lower right of window you are posting in and two options come up.  Click on insert image from URL, paste in the space provided and the click save into post. I hope this helps.

Just discovered after all this time that you can paste the Direct Link for an image into post without using the "insert other media" dialogue at all, works fine.

You get message   "Your link has been automatically embedded." With "Display as a link instead" option.

      Since Farnsworths has closed I'm looking for a gun shop with a good selection of used long guns. Something that's been used a couple of deer seasons and then traded in on some new hotness. A shop between Knoxville and Chattanooga would be best. Anyone got any suggestions?

      I'm looking to upgrade my mil-spec trigger in my WW 7.62x39 rifle. Been looking at the PSA trigger that is $30 but don't think the trigger and hammer springs may be enough to set off the steel cased ammo I use. Anyone have any recommendations on springs that would work for the 7.62 round that would work with the PSA trigger?

      I've got an older Savage model 116 I'm trying to identify and determine a value for.  It is a pre-accutriger model with an internal box magazine.  It has a wooden stock and a stainless barrel. 
      Any help would be much appreciated.
