I'm looking for a M500 persuader version, except in Maverick88. 100 bucks cheap, but still the same design. I love my Maverick 88. 5 rds of 00bk, next to my bed.

S.S.

How do people feel about having a double barrel shotgun for home defense, the 18 inch barrel version obviously (the cowboy gun)? With a double trigger. I've fired buckshot out of both barrels from my buddy's Remington SPR and man I loved it. Any thoughts?

Its up to you to be effective with it. If you've used it and had extensive training enough to feel comfortable with it, by all means use it.

The double coach gun in 12 ga. really packs a whollup! Even when fired from the hip it will take you off target.

Only drawback is after you release both barrels, you have to reload!!

BUT, there is no denying the cool factor from owning/shooting a double barrel. IMHO, there isnt anything much more intimidating, then looking at someone as they level the double barrel at ya!

As far as practicality, Ill stick to the Moss 500

This is true, I've fired over 30 rounds from that shotgun and you will do your shoulder a workout as well as practice reloading it. I felt comfortable with the gun... the "make the shots count" mentality comes into play when I shoot. I love it... hee hee .

It's soley for home protection. It's very easy to move around with in close quarters.
why do people always say its easy to move around corners when the smart thing to do during a burglery is stay in one room with your weapon and close the door then make alot of noise ND IF THAT doesnt scare the criminal off than most likely he will go to your bedroom and when he opens the door you unload on him

What if my wife and I had a fight and she is sleeping in the guest bed? What if I have kids in 2 years and their rooms are down the hall? Do you honestly think I'm going to sit in my bedroom in the corner and wait for someone to open the door? NO!! I'm getting up, arming myself and taking the fight to them. You go ahead and hide in the corner and pee your panties. A man gets up and protects him and his.
Am I going to go storming thru the house like an idiot? No. but I am going to move and move quickly. A shortened shotgun makes this much easier, if that is your weapon of choice, without giving away your position.
