Mossberg 500 Tactical

"Say hello to my little friend" I just picked this Model #50420 up Fri at Big 5 and payed way too much for it but I wanted it because unlike the one pictured up at Mossberg.com it did not have the cheese grater tri rail on the foregrip, apparently that is a different model. I have a small Tri Rail setup coming that is small enough to fit on whats left of the magazine tube, other than that what is your favorite place to get goodies for a Mossberg 500 online?

The only thing I've got mounted to mine is an Elzetta light mount with a Fenix PD 31 (300+ lumen) light.

All I have on mine is a HI-VIZ sight tube
And is it the camera angle? because that stock looks longer than hell.

It is extended out all the way, could be the camera angle playing tricks?

Pink, let me know how that red dot holds up after you've fired off a few rounds with that on there.

Who knew that blasting a box with #00 Buckshot could make a guy look like he won the lottery

I hold the butt of the stock in fairly tight and never give it a chance to get a running start at my shoulder....no real pain that I can remember?

(maybe I was having such a good time I didn't feel any pain?)

Since I sold my Remington I have been looking at one of these. Your pictures are doing nothing to help keep from buying one. :)

Good, then my work here is done!
I had more fun shooting the Mossberg Pump then I did shooting my new S&W M&P15 PSX. I was planning my next outing...before I got home from the current one, shotguns are way more fun than I anticipated!

It was $499.99 at Big5, that was the everyday price, not a sale price.

If I may be so bold to recommend this 590a1 for $494?

Link here $494.4 - Mossberg 590A1 Special Purpose Pump Shotgun - 12 Gauge - 20" Heavy Wall Barrel - 3" Chamber - Parkerized Finish - Black Synthetic Stock - Ghost Right Sights - 8 Round - 51663

I personally wanted to keep it simple, and I wanted to be able to put a full lenght ribbed hunting barrel on it, so I went for the 5 shot 590a1 and it only costs $406 it is THE bargain in top of the line pump home defense shotguns.

Link here $406.79 - Mossberg 590A1 Law Enforcement Pump Shotgun - 12 Gauge - 18.5" Heavy Wall Barrel - 3" Chamber - Parkerized - Black Synthetic Stock - 6.75 lbs - 5 Round - 51411

I am not sure what way I will go. I can get them about 40-50 bucks cheaper then that.

Philster, that is through the wholesalers. Currently the one that is cheapest is sold out. Some deals are better then others. Having my ffl helps sometimes, and others Buds guns will have it cheaper then I can get it. The good thing is I am on the list to Get some Ruger SR1911 here soon I hope. One for me and the others to sell.

It's over an hour out of Seattle and is already a way too popular place.
