All in all I've never had an issue with either of the shotguns so I plan on buying both more Mossberg's and Remington's in the future.
I would also like to point out that I am not one of the zombie apocalypse dorks. The Mossberg 500 Cruiser was my Pa's. After he died a few years ago my father told me to keep it.
Pa shot a few coyotes, dogs, and killed a few snakes with this Mossy
