    i got these special noise-cancelling ear-buds for my mp3 player. will that suffice? They were like 30 bux, but it said they cancel out some noise

    There should be an audio port on the mossberg. Make sure you plug in there like Rhace said.

  14. The 870 and 500 are both fine. Saying one is better than the other is stupid.


    I guess some people just have to argue.

    It's people like you that give gun owners a bad reputation.

    Better plan:
    Buy some deadmuffs ($15 is about all they'll set you back for something quality). Insert your MP3 player's earbuds as normal and put the muffs over your ears so you can listen to whatever and not go deaf since I wouldn't count on noise-cancelling designed for constant low level background noise to protect my ears from the concussion of a gunshot.

    I knew this thread was going to take a bad turn when I saw "dad." Do yourself a favor and take a safety training class like one the NRA offers.

    was just recently trained on the mossberg in boot camp. I didn't care for it much, as compared to other pump shottys I have used, but it serves the navy's purpose just fine. so I reckon it'll be fine for your dad

    it seems like their is more after market parts for the 870 than the 500 that seems to make guns popular around here.
