What I want for xmas
1 Attachment(s)
I have to hold on till after Christmas to get my present and this is what it will be. At the moment I don't own a good shotty and after looking around the Mossberg 590/a1 special purpose looks goo to me. I wanted more than 6 rounds capacity and this will hold 8+1 at 2 3/4 and 7+1 at 3 inch. Buds Guns had it for $449 with free shipping then I'd have to pay my FFL $40.00. I'm hoping another gun shop close to me will have it in for a good price.

Anyone here have one, shot one or want one? All the things I've read and youtube videos I've watched on it impress the hell out of me. It would round out my bug out equipment well. I have the XD40, the mini-14 for now, want a bushmaster m4, and then I can round it out with the shotty.

I've got a 500 and I like it just fine. The 590 gives you more capacity, the speedfeed stock and Ghostring sights. I think you'll like it a bunch.

I didn't have the bucks for the 590 when I bought mine, so I bought Mossberg factory Ghostring sights and installed them myself. Right now there's a Pachmayr pistol grip on it for while we're in the city. When we exfil, I'll put the regular stock back on.

Very nice. I know Mossberg has the just in case shotgun a little cheaper but I do like the capacity in the 590. Sweet lookin shotty you got there.

I had one. Not a day goes by that I wish I hadn't gotten rid of it. Great shotgun! Not a better shotgun! Yes sir,that's the one I'd want. It sure would be a shame if it wasn't under the tree in the morning. No sir........I don't believe life would be worth living with out one. Boy, I sure hope you get it. :p;):D:rolleyes: Really,I did have one.There o.k..And your right they do look goo.

big 5 just had them on sale here for $379. Its a great gun. I have a 500 that I converted to 590 and recently the plastic trigger group broke, but I am replacing it with a metal one from brownells.

This is a crappy pic, but here's mine. When I get the receiver back from powdercoat I'll post another pic.

looks good. I would buy the 500 if you could get a tube extension for it.
