    Thinking about picking this up just to keep around the house. I like the compact size and look of the gun, and from what I've heard Mossberg is a very reputable manufacturer. Also, which type of rounds would you recommend for home defense use? All feedback is very appreciated :bigthumb:

    #4buck is probably the best home defense round followed by 00buck

    If its just to keep around the house, I'de personally opt for something cheaper can pick up a nice pistol grip mossberg with out the mag and drum for $250 and will still hold 8 shells.

    That mag looks stupid and cumbersome. Regular Mossy 500 with 8 shot mag >>>> that thing

    Yeah that thing is way overpriced and too "Hollywood" for a home defense shotgun. I've never been a fan of PGO shotguns for home defense. They're too hard to handle and not logical.

    As I said that guy is charging way too much for that gun. For one thing he's using the Maverick 88 which is Mossberg's economy line of shotguns. The shotgun itself is only about $150.

    The drum attachment is the Sidewinder conversion made by Knoxx Industries. The street price on these things is $250, but if you have a C&R FFL, the discounted price at Midway is $163.

    The pistol grip is cheap and no more than $15 and the flash hider is no more than $30. I also think a flash hider on a shotgun is useless.

    Overall I think this gun is a ripoff

    The cost isn't much concern, mostly concerned in reliability and quality. If you guys have any suggestions for quality pistol grip shotguns I'd appreciate it, doesn't have to have the drum mag. :bigthumb:

    Is there a reason you want a pistol grip shotgun??? Have you ever fired a pistol grip shotgun?? I have and didn't feel I could handle one reliably in a home defense situation.

    If I did have to recommend a pistol grip I would look at a Knoxx Copstock or a Knoxx Breacher's grip. These grips have recoil reducing springs in the handles.

    For home defense I dont think you can go wrong with either a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500/590 shotgun. Get one with an 18" bbl and if you want more ammo get a sidesaddle or butt cuff. Also stick with the full stock.

    The best advice I've ever gotten for a shotgun is BA/UU/R which is is "Buy ammo, use up and repeat" Too many people have these ultra tactical shotguns and rifles but never shoot them.

    get a nice shotgun with a fold out stock if you really want a pistol grip. a stock comes in very useful most of the time.

    id say mossburg 500 would be your best choice

    18in barrell, lots of accesories, synthetic so its a bit lighter. Thats what id say.

    Dont forget to try it out with some clays, Big 5 is selling them with a 28in and a 18in, so go for it.

    also, 2 3/4in 00 buckshot would be a good round.

    All you need is a Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870 with an 18" barrel. Only 2 accessories I would get for home protection is a pistol grip stock like ATI (what I have on mine) and a flashlight mount. a set of night sight ghost rings would be optional. Last thing I would ever put on a shotgun is that stupid Sidewinder crap.

    Looks like someone tried to cram a bunch of Honda Type R parts onto a Chevy Malibu.

    WTF? Those drum mags hold what? 20 or so rounds? I'd rather have one of those in a combat situation than a standard 5/8 rounder

    PS I can't get any good stuff im in kaliforniastan

    10, a whopping two rounds more than the standard tube plus one in the chamber. I have a Mossberg 500 with a side saddle and have more rounds on hand than that cumbersome POS will hold.

    Try lugging one of those things around. I bet that shotgun handles like a tank. If you want more ammo go with a sidesaddle and ammo belt.

    Also, the Knoxx Sidwinder is legal in California, as it doesn't fall into the "street sweeper" category of firearms.
