    Leeeets see....


    Crimson trace grips for your favorite gun
    Ammo
    Membership to local range
    Custom holsters
    Custom work on gun of your choice
    Ammo
    Custom knife or spend some on a nice EDC knife
    (Mines a Zero Tolerance 0200)
    Prepping supplies
    Night sights for your handguns
    Accessories for your AR/AK
    Scope for deer rifle

    As far as guns go check your locality on ARMSLIST . Com for good deals

    New guns in that range may be
    Taurus/Rossi revolvers
    Taurus millinium pro
    S&W SD line

    You could get a good deer rifle for that as well

    Ruger American rifle and several savage guns come to mind

    You could also afford a good mossberg 500/remmy 870 for that as well





    Or you could save it for what you really want,

    Did I mention ammo?

    Oh sorry didnt notice the forum.

    Well a 500 or 870 is certainly within that price range.

    Nice! Didn't realize a 500 was in that price range..
    Hope panic price inflation doesn't exceed

    Looking to change the but stock out for a tactical looking folder maybe.

    Most hunting seasons have closed now; you should check the pawnshops for castaways. I still have a ugly Mossberg 500 that i picked up for $100 in 1995, on the way to dove hunt.

    You may end up changing it back,like I did.

    A pistol grip isn't exactly harsher on a shotgun,but its different enough that I found myself not being able to be as quick with follow up shots as with a traditional shotgun stock. The recoil with a pistol grip tended to twist my wrist off target.

    I just found the ergonomics of a pistol grip on a shotgun to be more of a liability than a asset. Ymmv

    I put a full buttstock WITH a pistol grip on my Mossy, better control of a PG and comfort of a real stock if you need it. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/SHT-265 similar to that but simpler.

    Good choice. Take care of it, and it will serve you well.

    I had my maverick 88 for 17 years. it wasn't my first shotgun, but it was my first pump action. i beat the snot out of that shotgun, and it never failed to work when I needed it to. I gave it to a fried's son when he started hunting a few years ago. When he has kids of his own, he plans on passing it down to them. Over 22 years, and still going strong. I call that a good investment. I still use my dad's old Mossberg bolt action 20 gauge, and it was built in the late 1940s. Good to see that the current generation of the Mossberg family is keeping up the tradition of inexspensive, well built, reliable shotguns and rifles.

    Mossberg is a fine old gun maker.
