Default I need a shotgun

I do not have a shotgun but want one that will cover most everything in a shtf situation. I am looking at a mossberg 535 ATS combo at bass pro. Would this be a good choice for someone that will only have one shotgun.

Get it. You won't regret it. You could also look at at an 835 or 500 so you have more barrel options. Either way though, you can't go wrong with a mossberg pump.

The 535 would be good because it will also accept 3 1/2" shells....good choice

I have a Mossberg 500 combo with the rifled slug barrel. With Winchester Xp3 sabots it is very accurate. It's not bad with the regular econo pack rifled slugs. I have a 2.5x fixed power scope that I mount on my mossberg for deer hunting. You will appreciate a scope with the slug barrel. The stock williams sights leave a lot to be desired. My 500 came drilled and tapped for a scope. Good sabots will extend the range of the slug barrel considerably.

Walmart does stock the 500 combo. It depends on if you find the 3 1/2" shells a must. The BPS price is fair..You might save $50 at Walmart if you can settle for a 3" magazine.

I have to agree that the Mossberg Flex is the best way to go if you need/want more than one but don't have the finances for it. After doing extensive research I decided to order the 500 20 gauge for the range and HD. With the accessories available, one would be crazy not to give it some thought.

In a word. Yes. You will have a well made and well rounded shotgun if you buy the 500, the 535, or most any Mossberg pump. My wife has a model 500 20 ga. combo, and it does everything she needs it to do. I used to have a Maverick 88 (Mossberg with a lower price tag) for 20 years with no problems that couldn't be fixes with a cleaning. I now run Remington 870s, but I still steal the 500 from the wife when I can.

Quoted for truth.
