i got my mossberg 500a field years ago I think it came with a 26" ported barrel. I used it for some dove hunting and deer chasing. Now I have set it up for HD with adapter and leftover parts from my AR-15 it has become quiet a handy little powerhouse. It is a pleasure to shoot and just all around fun, If Mossberg is good enough for Army and Marines (where I first held one) its good enough for my house!
keep up the good work!
