    Ok I'm looking for a mossberg maverick 88 12 guage but no luck finding it . I did go to a shop today ( Ron's gun shop ) figured I give it a try since it was 8 minutes away from my house . They don't carry it . Anyone know of a shop who do carry it

    JC,
    In the past I have seen them at Academy Sports and Walmart! Might check there or see if they can order you one. Or find a local gun shop that will deal and order you one. Sometimes the odds of just walking into gun shops to find a specific firearm you want is like a needle in the hay stack regarding odds! Then for example if you want the Model 88 with the 8 shell extension on it they may not have the exact features you want. If all else fails find a dealer that will do a transfer for you and order one where ever you can find the best deal on the one you want. Usually they will charge around $35.00 to do a transfer.

    have your LGS order it for you. availability will depend on what their distributors have in stock.

    the Maverick 88 is a good solid shotgun at a decent price. i am now on my second one and highly recommend them. many of the parts and accessories for the Mossberg 500 will interchange on the Maverick 88.

    don't give up hope.

    Axxe55 an everyone else thanks for the input , but I just got off the phone with a lgs I had asked about the maverick 88 security . Let me just cut to the chase price on it from what he had told me was $535 . Someone please let me know they aren't crazy . And for that price I would rather get the 500

    if they were pricing the Maverick 88 Security model, then they were on drugs! the MSRP on that shotgun is $298 and they usually go in the $225-275 range NIB. find another LGS to get a price from.

    check out the pawn shops in your areas as well. those who can pawn guns have an FFL and many times they can order a gun just like a gun store can. i have seen several that sold new guns at a decent price.

    not all pawn shops have an FFL. if they don't have an FFL they can't legally pawn a firearm. your state may also have different regualtions for a pawn shot than here in Texas where i live. look in the phone book and call all the pawn shops and see if they deal in firearms.
