I just bought my first Shotgun, a Mossberg 500ag 12 gauge with a 28 inch barrel
I don't know much about firearms, I was raised in NZ by anti-gun parents. If any of you can help me out i'd appreciate it.
Some questions to start;
What kind of ammunition should I keep in my home for self-defense? Right now I just have 5 rounds of 12 ga. Birdshot left over from the range.
What should I do to keep it clean and maintained?
One last thing, it says that it's chambered for 2 3/4 - 3 inch shells yet the rounds I have say 3 1/4 on them, should I not fire these?
Here are a couple of pictures
