The persuader also has a 20 barrel and full length magazine which gives you an extra round over the jic.

I have a Mossberg 500 and it came with a 28 inch vented ribbed barrel. I just purchased a 18.5 inch barrel for 80 dollars. Gun was 280 I believe. Wood stock. And I absolutely love it. Its my working gun. I use it for everything. So happy the wood is as good looking as it is. I smile every time I take it out of the case. I def recommended a good ole basic 12 or 20 ga pump. Full stock = more uses

i have to agree the JIC with the pistol grip is a bad idea. lots of recoil having to be absorbed by the wrist. i have shot a few myself and the benefit of having the shorter length just wasn't worth the added recoil felt in the wrist. step up to OO buckshot or slugs and it just gets worse. the Mossberg 500 or 590 with the 18.5" barrel in 12 or 20ga would work much better. or even a Remington M870 with a 18.5" barrel. i have the Winchester SXP Defender with a 18.5" barrel in 12ga, loaded with #4 birdshot and my wife has no problems with the recoil at all. she even prefers shooting it over any of the shotguns i own. and #4 birdshot at 30 feet or less will end a BG's day quick!

I beleive the longer magazine on the 500's hold 7 (or is it 8?) rounds so it's at least two more than the standard 5 round tube on the 500. The 590 is definitely 8+1. The standard 870 is 4+1.

Terry -- you're not STORING that nice 500 in a soft case I hope.

Reminder the 590A1 is not light.

some people like slugs for a defensive round and it works great as one as that's a massive hunk of lead hitting something and will do major damage to a BG's day! but the downside is, slugs generally have more felt recoil than shot type shells. sabots are designed for either slug barrels with rifle type sights or rifled barrels with sights for hunting purposes. they are designed to increase the effective range of a shotgun when hunting game animals. so IMO sabots wouldn't be practical for a shotgun used for SD/HD applications.

myself, i use as stated before, #4 birdshot. how do i know it works? testing. i test it at 30 feet against different materials, 3/8" plywood, 1/2" drywall, car door, ect. ect... and have found that at this distance, it has plenty of power and penetration to do the job i expect it to do. some may scoff at my choice, but i have done my own testing and found the results speak for themselves. some will say you need to use some sort of buckshot for SD/HD loads, but after my informal testing, i have found for the distances that would be used, it just isn't needed for me. these are my conclusions based on my situation and uses, and what works for me might not work for others. i will always suggest that people need to test loads for usage rather than just relying on hearsay or blind recommendations from other people. i know what OO buckshot will do at 30 feet, and after my informal testing a couple of years ago with #4 birdshot, i know that it will do the job if needed at 30 feet or less.
