    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.

    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.

    Thats why I converted mine. I put a 590 mag tube on it so I could put a two shot extension, plus the barrel selection is better for the 590.

    I did however take the extension off for a change of pace...and then lost the extended spring...lol...hahaha, hehehe...hehe.he.h uh I feel like an idiot.

    I remember taking a look at mine way back when,and not that I had a problem with it, but wasn't the front sight and maybe the barrel/tube support attached with some kind of glue or epoxy ? I seem to remember that being rather odd.

    Sweet! Yep, I want one. It's either that or the 870 tactical for me.

    So I got an add for Big 5 Sports and they have a Mossberg security 12 guage 9 round for $279. I am going to pick it up and just add a different stock and the ghost ring sights.

    That's a good way to go Doc. You can get the Ghortrings directly from Mossberg. The rear screws in and the front sight can be either soldered or epoxied on.
