Yup! I love my Mossberg 500 and have since 1995, after somebody else loved it since 1978 or so.

See if you can find a combo with both a field barrel and a shorter home defense barrel.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mossberg-500-All-Purpose-Field-Shotgun-12ga/17656106 According to the reviews, Wally's sells the non-combo, plain-Jane model for $250ish. Mine was $100 at a pawn shop, very used.

How much are they, can't seem to find a price online, and where can I get one? Has the ban taken them out of circulation?

Highly unlikely to be banned, except maybe in Colorado.

Check the local stores; I gotta believe you can beat $310. The combos usually go about $350, I bleve.

If you wish, there are many accessories available (stocks, side saddle ammo racks, alternate barrels, etc.). They did have a .50 cal muzzle-loading barrel that you could get at one time, not sure now.

Walmart is $257 so I guess that is the price area. Great guys. I always thought 500's were 800 bucks.

Thanks for the link. I need a HD barrell. The shells I have for my model 37 are 2 3/4. So I need a barrel that can fit those

Remington 870. I prefer the Remington because of the weight. But the mossberg has more intuitive controls IMO. They're both pound for pound similar guns though that retail at about the same price. You can find one for $220 used in my area. $300 out the door new in most cases though.

When I bought my NIB HD barrel (18.5" cylinder bore) at the gun show, it was $75-$80.
