  1. Mossberg 500 trigger reach

    Shotgun Forum
    Have a Mossberg 500 Mariner with 12" Hogue LOP buttstock. Even with the shortened LOP, I still have issues getting a good grip on the trigger. My finger barely reaches (I have short fingers). I realized the issue is not my LOP, but the distance between the grip and the trigger itself. Most...
  2. Maverick HS-12 For Hunting and Survival

    Shotgun Forum
    So I recently bought a Mossberg HS12 shotgun and I wanted to share my experience with it so far and the reason I went this direction. I was using an H&R single shot for hunting small game. The model I have is a 162 which has a front blade sight and a rear fold down sight similar to the setup...
  3. Department Store vs Gun Shop Shotguns... big differences?

    Shotgun Forum
    I'm about to buy my first shotgun and am looking at a Mossberg 500 combo. I am not well-versed with shotguns but it seems to have good versatility and a gentle price point. Most reviews and videos on talk like it's a good choice. Today I was calling around to check availability and learned...
  4. ghost rings vs bead sights?

    Shotgun Forum

  5. Mossberg 702 Aftermarket ?

    Rifle Forum
    Yep, been a year since I got a Mossberg 702. But I realize that there is hardly any aftermarket stuff for it. The only things they sell for it is 10rd and 25rd magazine made from Mossberg and dang they are expensive and hard to find. The rifle is getting kind of popular, but never get nuff...
  6. First Shotgun

    Shotgun Forum
    I know this question has been asked a bunch of times, but I am looking for a good first shotgun. I own a few rifles, the m1 carbine of my grandfather's being my personal favorite, but I would like to make the foray into shotguns. I would like to target shot with it, but it's main use is...
  7. Help Choosing My First HD Shotgun

    Shotgun Forum
    Sorry guys, if you've answered this a million times before, but grateful if you'd indulge this newbie. I have no prior shotgun experience but have narrowed it down to the 870 vs the 500. I'm leaning toward the 18.5" 870 pump action. But wonder whether the recoil of a 12 ga is too much to ever...
  8. Mossberg Mag Extension

    Shotgun Forum
    I'm sure this has been addressed before, but after a couple quick searches I couldn't find it. Do any Mossberg models have a mag extension that doesn't require a seperate barrel?
  9. Firearms to keep at a Bug Out Location

    Firearms General Discussion
    Some kind of worse case situation has happened, you and your family have to bug out to the Bug Out Location, and how what? Keep in mind, this is a worse case situation, meaning you did not have time to grab any gear from your home. The only gear you have, is the gear you have stored at the...
  10. Is a Mossberg 590 worth it?

    Shotgun Forum
    I currently have a Mossberg 500 Persuader model, which I got used for $250 several years ago. It has a tritium front sight and heatshield added. It was like new and I think a great deal. I'm looking at getting something additional (before Obummer realizes he has unlimited power to control us)...
  11. Bug Out Location Observations

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Man oh man, what a weekend. In a previous article we talked about survivalism as an experience and not just a theory. This past weekend was to expand my experience, and to improve upon my theories. Part of my prepping for SHTF / TEOTWAWKI includes going to the Bug Out Location for a couple of...

  14. Mossberg 590 "plastic"

    Shotgun Forum
    I've heard so much about how the Mossberg 590 is an improvement over the 500, in particular the "Persuader" model, which I currently have. The one thing I hear about most is that the 590 has a metal trigger guard as opposed to the plastic one on the 500. Well, I went to my local shop yesterday...

  16. Shotgun Wedding

    Shotgun Forum
    Pump-Shotgun Wedding There's no reason NOT to have at least one shotgun around if you're a serious prepper or survivalist.. Since there are so many excellent new shotguns available for well under $250 out there it's hard to pick just one! Here's a few that are currently available...

  18. Mossberg 590A1 Magazine question.

    Shotgun Forum
    I got a Mossberg 590A1 the other day from a local shop, at a good price, brought it home, stripped it, oiled it and took it to the range. Now, I had no trouble with any of this, with the exception of the magazine tube. The nut on the end comes off just fine (the 8+1 version) and so does the...
