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.
