Mossberg Model 500 Shotgun

Fun Gun Reviews Presents: The Mossberg Model 500 Pump Shotgun, Introduced in 1961, is one of the most popular in the country. A reliable, proven design that is being used for Home Defense and by U.S. Forces around the world.


Mossberg 500 is a series of pump-action shotguns manufactured by O.F. Mossberg & Sons.[1] The 500 series comprises widely varying models of hammerless repeaters, all of which share the same basic receiver and action, but differ in bore size, barrel length, choke options, magazine capacity, and "furniture" (stock and forearm) materials. Model numbers included in the 500 series are the 500, 505, 510, 535, and 590.

The 12 gauge pump action is a very useful firearm. I wouldn't have sold the extra barrel. The multiple barrel package is a great deal. The longer barrel is ideal for duck and geese hunting. It has a full choke which is the tightness of the opening of the barrel at the muzzle. It keeps the shot pattern closer together at longer ranges. The shorter barrel would be a cylinder bore. It is a larger opening to facilitate buckshot and rifled slugs which are devastating. The pump action is sure and fast. I prefer the Remington 870 personally. The Winchester Defender series is also a good choice. They are reasonable in price. The recoil of the magnum or 3 inch or 3 1/2 inch loads are severe. You can always use a lighter non magnum field load in many applications especially target practice or initiation. Wearing a padded shooting vest helps a lot too. Always remember to treat all firearms as loaded and always point them in a safe direction. 

Totalitarians always fretted at the possession of the basic double barrel farmer's shotgun as an impendiment to enslavement. The pitchfork was well respected too in the hands of swarthy men. Freedom was never given. It was taken. Those who possessed power want it back. They realize, too, that it will not be given. It must be taken ergo the push for gun control. The other option to take power from the people is trickery. People will give their rights and freedoms away with that technique. Any attempt to acquire power from the people must be held suspect. Guard it jealously with your shotgun.
