    If you buy a gun for home defense it's probably going to suck for sporting :hsugh:

    Mossberg has better controls.
    Going to go play with a Saiga this weekend. I may have a different outlook about my preference come Monday morning though :naughty:

    Mossberg has a Model 500 that comes with a long barrel and a short barrel. Synthetic or wood. Only around 200-250.

    too many variables. How much do you want to spend? auto or pump? 18" barrel? 28" barrel?

    i went to the store yesterday and they had a Mossberg for $139.

    what i don’t get is why the short barrel is more expensive than the long barrel?


    AND for some reason they couldn't sell me the gun on the spot because they needed to do a more extensive background check...

    It happens. Sometimes you get flagged for any number of reasons and have to wait a couple days.

    I've seen brand new ones on sale for $199.00. Definitely too much for a used piece.

    I dislike the way "grip" on the stock and forearm feel, but other than that they're solid guns.
