The Mossberg 500 and Maverick 88 are identical shotguns with the only real diffrence being the trigger assembly. The Maverick has the Remington style controls. If you dont mind this then by all means go for the Maverick. The Maverick is also owned by Mossberg and is really the same design. You should be able to find a better deal on the Mossberg then $340 is you look around. Arms list if another great place to look for pistol grips and you can get one for about $15 off there. 99% of the Maverick and Mossberg parts are interchangable between the 2 so you can't really go wrong.
A feast for the Twala
FL is the only state where you can buy any gun you want, but you can't shoot them.
