Seriously though, my next shotgun will probably be a Mossberg in 20ga. There's one that holds 8+1. I figure that'll be a pretty decent HD weapon.
If the 20 Ga. Mossberg your talking about is a Semi,..your talking about my SA-20! It's 5+1/6+1, until you add the extended tube mag, which makes it 7+1/8+1. We also got the adjustable youth to adult stock with the pistol grip...so the wife can use it...

Nope, its a pump. I was lazy before, but I just looked it up. I thought it had a different number, but it turns out its just the 500.

Well to get picky it's 5 12 ga. I have a pretty old single shot that was Dads that does not get shot anymore as by the time I was able to save it from other family members it was in pretty rough shape. But ut was a family gun so I"ll keep it and pas it on I don't have much info on the old thing. Brand is Triumph. I'm pretty sire it was a catalog gun but I'm not sure the maker.
Add in a Stevens w/adjustable choke, Moss 835, Rem 870 and the new Mossy that's a lot of shotguns!

But you are right...It's a good problem to have and too much really is never enough

I just sold my last two 870's last week,...so all I have now are Semi's: an 1100 with 2 extra tubes and a choke set, which doesn't get shot anymore either, and the Mossberg SA-20, and the Catamount Fury II,...the wife also wants the Rossi revolving .410/45LC....and if we do in fact go to Mo this coming April for the shoot,..we'll need either a change of barrels and the right choke for the SA-20, or a new gun just for targets...maybe the CZ-920.....

Cost almost as much as my Semi....mine was MSRP of $525, but I got it for right at 550 with the adjustable stock and the longer barrel(22.5")and mag. All we added so far was the sling, the ammo carrier on the stock, and a cheap light. I just got a 2x prismatic red/green dot sight for it( at $100 apiece, I bought three of them!).. Still need an enlarged charging handle, and a fast loader of some type...and maybe a forward vertical grip after I add a longer bottom rail,..

I know the feeling. I have several 12 gauges but my favorite for HD is my Stoegers Double Defense.

Let's not forget about the UTAS15 - I like it pretty well for HD or any other D as far as that goes.

Wasn't planning on it. sentimental value....and as long As I have "Room" for it. Wife is starting to "get the Gist"....

Wife:"Why are we Buying another Safe again"

Me: so we don't run out of Room

Wife: "But you said we sold your Old Guns to have more space in the Safe"

Me: and now We have PLENTY of Space.....

To Be specific: I did sell off Several Older Guns We had(which included 2 Presentation edition Colts),..Primarily to raise some extra funds to put in the bank since We're Waiting for my Wife's Disability case to go through. I still have a few of the Guns I inherited from My Dad & Uncle....but the Ones I had no Sentiment attached to went Bye Bye to new owners...
