Shotgun price?
 
How much does a used mossberg go for? I'm looking for a cheap shotgun but I don't want it to be a peace of sh*t. My budget is about 300-350 bucks. Can anyone please help?

question. do you want a cheap shotgun or an inexpensive one? huge difference.

unless prices are hugely inflated in your area, i don't see why you couldn't get a Mossberg 500 for that amount.

might also browse the gun stores and pawn shops in your area for good used shotguns.

Inexpensive* sorry. I actually want the 500. My cousin bought his new for 400 bucks total. I figured if I only have 300 bucks I can possibly buy a used one. I'm new to shotguns so I'm not sure. I called dicks sporting goods and their prices were also about 400-450 for a new one.

Not sure where you are at, but you can easily find a brand new Mossberg persuader type shotgun for about 300-330 dollars around here.

Places like slickguns.com always has sales on mossbergs. Here is one from a week ago. 299.00 on Ebay you can get a stock for 20-50 dollars on average. Get a FFL dealer to do the transfer and 20 dollars more
can get you one.

check out the Maverick M88 shotguns. made by Mossberg and almost identical to the M500 and priced much lower than the M500. very good inexpensive shotgun. not quite as pretty as some of the others, but very reliable and functional. i have one and it's my second one so far. wouldn't hesitate in buying another one.

I wouldn't rule out buying a used shotgun, I would just read up on what to look for in a used gun, even if you end up buying a new one. Either way it's valuable information in general. The Mossberg is a fine choice.

At the risk of sounding picky, would I be able to effectively hunt turkey with the M88, what's the difference besides looks, and will I be able to buy a new one given my budget? Sorry

Check on places like Gun Genie to find an FFL dealer in your area who does Transfers. Depending on the state, you may or may not have to pay taxes. Out here its state sales tax is free. So the price you see on a gun over the internet is the price, plus about 15 to 20 dollars for a dealer to handle the paper work. No sales tax is great. And many places like buds guns, etc, pay the shipping on the gun.
