Thanks, it's amazing that I probably don't have $200 tied up in that gun, yet it is one of my favorites.
My first shotgun when I was a kid was a Mossberg 500 in 20 ga. with a 28" imp. mod. choke in it and it'll outshoot most 12 ga. guns. Back then I used it for pheasant, quail, duck and rabbit hunting and never felt outgunned by the guys who were hunting with their 12 ga.'s. I think we paid $49 for it new at Western Auto when we bought it.
The debate about Remington vs. Mossberg will rage on forever, but I've had very positive experiences in my life using Mossbergs, so I know they will perform well.
