I just bought a Mossberg 500 Shotgun for Home Defense. Will be going to Outdoor Range next week to check it out. I have never shot a shotgun before. Do anyone have an opinion on the Mossberg 500 for home Defense??
I suggest low-recoil ammo, especially for home defense. There's plenty of it available at your local outdoor retailer (Outdoor World, Gander Mountain, etc.) or on the net.
I have a Mossy 500. I put a very small rail on the tube and attached a tac light on it. The one I got only came with a pistol grip (for masochists only) so I installed a recoil-reducing folding stock. It works well. Great home defence gun. It's 1 of 2 firearms in my home that stays fully loaded and chambered 24/7.
a pistol grip (for masochists only)??? did you just call me a masocheat? LOL I have a pistol grip on mine too...
