Well ive been meanin to get a shotgun for a long time. and yesterday I finally got it. A Mossberg 590 12 ga. ghost ring sights and a bayo lug. It all started a few months ago when I dug up some docs on suggestions for a tactical shotgun that id got from members of this site sometime last year. I was torn between the 590 and the FN police shotgun. [url]www.fnhusa.com[/url] it was a bit cheaper than the 590 with a shorter stock and a faster sliding action. The 590 can hold one extra shell though and has that sweet bayo lug on the front. Then when on vacation I think it was last weekend I saw a 590 in a dicks sporting goods and I was hooked. Yesterday I put nearly $450 on the counter at the local gun shop for this sweet baby. Its the first gun ive ever bought that I wont have to worry about sighting in.

Do we see a SideSaddle and Pistolgrip buttstock in your future? Maybe an 'evil' heatshield? Oh, yeah! Nice shotgun.
Link Posted: 4/19/2003 7:06:21 PM EDT
You suck[:D][:D] I want one but money is so tight I might be sellin' stuff pretty soon. Hope I can get my Dad interested so I can keep the "babies" in the family.

definatly a side saddle or bandoleer or maybe a shotshell holding sling. Ive also considered a folding stock though im not sure about a pistol grip only. the recoil is hard enough on my shoulder but on my hand alone......... unfortunatly I cant put a heat shield on it because of the ghost rings. but ill find other ways to trick it out [:p]

yeah I know what you mean. Theres a guy that hangs around the gun store where I do most of my shoppin. Brags constantly about his super duper sks. more reliable than an ak47 and more accurate than a match ar15!!! [lol] He paid less than 200 for it and hasnt modified it except to put a folding pistol grip stock on it and an el cheapo scope. he rags out some wild stories and insults other peoples guns. all in good fun of course. we just invite him to a lil competition but for some odd reason he never has the time. [;D] btw Ive never heard of CAI. for me the seller of POS guns is SOG international.

Century Arms International (CAI) [Often rendered as CIA to imply "government rifles"] is the manufacturer of 90% of the garbage rifles in SOGs catalog. CAI is the manufacturer, SOG, AIM and FAC are the junk dealers.

I can't bring myself to pay that. For some reason I keep thinking I'll find one for $350 but haven't yet :( Congrats on the cool shotgun.
View Quote
try gunbroker.com they had a 590 on there for $325 that I had considered but the action ended and I didnt see anything desirable for a while. Gunshop owners just seem to charge outrageous prices because they seem to think that noone doesn their research. I just wanted a shotgun and was willing to take the expense. but if you "really" shop around you could find a much better price.

Sweet....I'll have to put one of those on my wish list. BTW...I'm glad I don't see any Jerkins lotion on the head board...unlike some other guy who posted (you know who you are [;D]) What's with the 77/22 or 10/22 stainless in the corner?
Link Posted: 4/25/2003 9:37:51 AM EDT
you sir have good eyes. its a 10/22 My dad bought that for me for my birthday one year. its got a black synthetic stock and stainless steel settings. I wanted it originally to take my mind off of wanting an ar15. I was gonna fix it up with a folding stock, barrel shroud, high cap mags ect. but never got around to it. Ive got an adjustable scope mounted on it and its fairly accurate even with the short barrel. one of these days im gonna get a heavy "match" barrel and a bipod, sling, match trigger and a better scope. Ill probably use it as a companion varmint gun.

NO!!!!!! Haven't you ever heard of mustache rides? You gotts keep it at least untill you get your red wings! I've had mine since I could grow one, back in the early 70s. It's been in and out of style several times, but my wife likes it[}:D]
Link Posted: 5/26/2003 10:15:14 AM EDT
well everyone this has come to a sad end. sort of. I now desperately need the $450 I paid for it for somthin else. I dont have enough $$$ in the bank for what I need so my only option is to sell my beloved shotgun [:(] Its not so bad really. I was probably gonna sell it anyway eventually to buy a shotgun that accepts choke tubes so that I could get seriously into shotgun hunting and skeet shooting. Today is memorial day, Im gonna shoot my shotgun one last time and then tomorrow I am going to see if the dealer will buy it back from me. I dont know how good my chances will be but all dependant It may end up on gunbroker.com or the arfcom equip exchange. If I had a job this would not be required. but it is becomeing increasingly harder to find work around here. oh well. I always have the memories. [shotgun]
