Now the fact that I bought mine in grad school in 1995, THAT is showing my age.

Mossberg 500, Remington 870 or even the Maverick 88, which is made by Mossberg and pretty much the M500 with some minor differences. i have used all three of these and wouldn't hesitate in buying any of them.

I also have a New England Firearms pardoner which is based off of the 870. Got it for under $200 and it has been a good gun. Also 870 aftermarket parts fit it but not barrels

Remington 870 each and every time. I wouldn't shoot my worst enemy with a Mossberg because I want it to work, shoot straight, and get the job done.

Yeah because we know the Mossbergs fail all the time. I'm sure that's why they were the only shotgun to pass the Marine Corps requirements when they were adopted.

I have has Mossbergs and Remingtons. Both are fine. Both will kill bad guys just as dead. Mossbergs have better placement of controls for the safety and bolt release. Remington's have a more solid action rail system. I wouldn't want to stand in front of either one.

Was gonna say the same thing...
If I am not mistaken, they are the only shotgun to this day to pass all of the trials it's been put through.
I guess outstanding customer service and a 10 year warrantee just aren't enough for some people....

Don't buy Remington unless you like to deal with customer service that is worse than Taurus. Your money also goes to "Freedom" Group.

Might've been dumb-luck, but I got a Stoeger M2000 auto-load @ Dick's for $375 last Fall. As long as you don't use anything lighter than 30g shells (to keep the ejector happy) - this puppy pops as fast as you can pull the trigger. I took out the plug (4 + 1) and ran thru a couple hundred rounds without a single jam.

Hmmmmmmmm..............Mossberg has a proven track record just like the 870. for the most part, i have yet to see a Mossberg that didn't perform like it should.
