    Seriously, GREAT purchase, B. That's nice. Very slick, very clean, and VERY deadly. What size sheels? Can you shoot 3" magnum #00 ("double aught buck")?

    Nice. I bought my Mossberg 500, but can't pick it up till 10/30. All my accessories are coming throughout next week, tho. I'm getting:

    Tacstar 6 shotshell Sidesaddle
    ATI Light mount
    ATI Sidefolding stock (Might go on my other 500)
    Knoxx SpecOps Stock
    Uncle Mikes Tactical Sling

    Edit- I need to get the metal trigger guard/safety, too.

    Does the flashlight come mounted like that? That things gonna get fucked up if the gun ever gets dropped.

    I'd lose the sling, the laser, and mount that flashlight better.

    And for anyone who likes quality products, STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM ATI. I've seen G.I. Joe weapons built better than that trash.

    Yeah, real suave...

    You shoulda saved the money you spent on the POS light and worthless laser and bought a quality light that's integrated into the forearm -- i.e. Surefire 618.

    It's a scattergun for God's sake! You don't need a laser on a shotgun. Hell, IMHO, a laser on just about anything is pointless...

    Oh, and BTW, the squigly cord is not a bright idea either. If you want "tactical" be practical --

    I want to know who decided that a sling with a knife was a good idea.

    looks like a lot of extra mall ninja super tactical entry anti-terrorism gun rice..

    the light is good, as is the 8 round magazine. The rest isn't really necessary.

    I'd still get rid of the sling, all that's going to do is get in the way. Besides, you don't need a sling on a shotgun unless you're shooting slugs and are using it to steady your aim or are carrying it a distance, like turkey hunting.

    yeah, no need for a sling either

    Went and shot the gun today, put 100rounds through it, I decided the sling is more cumbersome than its worth

    The folding stock I prefer it folded up anyway, and the laser was more useful than I could imagine if I actually held the gun low and aimed at something. i was using bird shot and the spread was really tight, when I shot without the laser, I would always overcorrect when reaimining, I guess because after you pump another round in, you're all off center from your last reference point

    Damn this thing kicks though!
