A very unpractical purchase but I an HAPPY !

Recommended Posts

I was listening to Guns And Leather radio hour a few weeks ago. They mentioned they had Mossberg Shockwaves in 20 gauge on sale for $339 . I always wanted one but in 12 gauge. I waited a week and then got one of the 20 gauge. I am so glad I went with the 20 gauge. It is way more manageable than I thought and still has a good thump towards the target or bad guys. With the 14 inch barrel it's neat as neat could be ! Plus I figured if there was another "Clinton ban" these things would definitly get banned so why not get one now.  I am all about practical weapons and practical tools but this thing is fun and can be. It can also hide very well in a car or truck to just bring along If you're checking on some farm stuff or just riding down the road messing around and too lazy to strap on a pistol. I am very pleased with it. It is the most unpractical thing I ever bought but it is truly fun. I'm keeping the forearm strap on it cause I can see how your hand could slip past the forearm and get blasted by the muzzle very easily.  You cant beat $339 for something like this . Here's it is . I slathered on a heavy coat of Ballistol after shooting it so that's why it looks wet especially on the bolt.  Thanks to Guns And Leather !

I got to add that back in the day when The Road Warrior came out I always wanted a short barreled shotgun like Mel Gibson used in that movie and this thing surpassed that . Very high on the cool meter !

I have one in 12 gauge. It goes everywhere with me in my truck, and I can't think of a better tool to go along with my side arm while in the woods or camping. Talon makes a grip cover for it. I thought about that or stippling, but for the time being I have a bike inner tube on it and that seems to be just the ticket.

I love it . And you're right on with it being able to go places like the woods or camping

Heat the grip up with a heatgun until it's shiny and then dab brillo pad/Chore Boy (or the equivalent wide scrubbing pad) on it. Makes a good textured grip without being too rough.

I have the 12ga Remington version, I think I'd like it even better in 20ga.

All you guys are making me want one! Mossy or Remy? Still thinking.

Think a 20 in either. Any comments on either one?

The Mossberg has the safety right in the middle so a left handed or right handed person can use it. The Mossberg is an old proven design , but then again the Remington is too , but I don't like the Remingtons since they got bought out. Quality has went to crap. I say go with the Mossberg.

Mossy holds an extra round, too, 5+1.

And if you know where to look you can buy a 590 +1 tube extension that comes out almost even for 5+1+1 for the 12.
