Since the post about my steyr did so well compared to my other crappy posts, heres another one about my shotgun, the mossberg 500. I bought it from big 5 with a 18.5" Barrel and a 28" barrel with a modified choke. Out the door it was about 300. Excellent value. I've never actually used the short barrel, so just be satisfied knowing it's there.
The long barrel is amazing. I take this thing trap shooting every so often and it always performs amazingly. One of my friends once shot a 24 out of 25 with it. Its a very lightweight gun because of the synthetic stock, so it swings well. It does kick quite a bit but if you've shot a rifle before you can probably handle a 12ga target load out of this. Slugs are a different story as are buck, but as a big guy I really don't mind too much. It has a huge squishy butt plate that makes it nice and soft on the shoulder.
With slugs its pretty accurate, and with buck you get a nice spread, but I'm not a hunter so I don't really give a good goddamn about that. Tons of mods are available for it to make it into whatever level of tactical shotgun you want. I'm also not a paranoid gun nut so I have no interest in turning my delightful sporting arm into a destructive device, like dis:
