I would definitely go with the Mossberg 500. They are a fine shotgun and also the availability of extra barrels for them are easily acquired. For example a full choke barrel for ducks and geese and a Modified or Improved Choke for bird hunting and even a rifle sight barrel for Deer hunting and defense purposes. All at a decent price~
Just a great all around gun for the money. I have owned two 500s which I gave to my children. I presently own a Model 930 Turkey Camo Semi Auto Mossberg. Can't go wrong with Mossberg!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
