Mossberg 500 Review

Welcome to review 48 I think. Today’s topic is really quite unremarkable in that it’s just a pistol gripped Mossberg 500. Blue finish, 6 shot, 12 gauge I just picked up for well under $200 While they’re like 90 billion of these on Earth we used to use this exact model for door breaching in the desert. It was simply carried slung on your back with a piece of 550 cord. Loaded with door breaching rounds, carried in addition to an M4 rifle. I picked it up for a few reasons. One being it reminded me of the old days and I smiled when I saw it. Two, for the $$ it’s a reliable piece of ass kicking machinery. Three, when you can almost pay for a decent gun with the change in your ashtray and center console you should buy it.


Mossberg 930 SPX Tactical Review


Tonite I have the Mossberg 930 SPX Tactical to discuss. Per the usual there is a real slug fest in the forums over this weapon. I’m glad we don’t have that problem here. The main thing I’m seeing is comparisons to the Benelli M4 shotgun, currently in use by the USMC. Well that’s sorta like comparing Dodge Chargers to Z06 Corvettes. Comparing K-Mart sales flier swimsuit models to Victoria Secret girls, you get the idea, apples and oranges. The price range difference is huge. Going back to the car comparison, both will reliably get you where you want to go, both are nice. Is the extra 10’s of thousands of dollars extra worth it to be behind the wheel of the Z06 Vette?? That you would have to decide, it was for me. I drive a Z06 but with the shotguns?? No, I felt the Mossberg would do anything I needed it to and so far she’s been a gem.


Mossberg 590 Review


This afternoon I want to go over the Mossberg 590 A1 combat shotgun. Not only the weapon itself but the overall usefulness of any “gauge” in MIL or LE use.
