    Help me decide...

    OK, so I know it's 6 months till Christmas, but I want some input. I always get a $400.00 Visa gift card for Christmas, and I am going to purchase a firearm with it, but am unsure which one I want to get.

    * I am getting back into hunting, so would like a deer rifle.
    * I would like to have a nice little pocket pistol
    * I don't have a shotgun

    Thanks for your input!

    You've got to have a scattergun!
    Mossberg was my vote.

    It kind of comes down to what you feel is your greatest need right now. I decided you should go with the shotgun but a close second would be the LCP for a BUG.

    I went with what my next purchase will be... another shotgun! :)


    I'm considering a Mossberg 500 Bantam 20 (54132), or...


    ... a Mossberg Tactical Persuader 20g, w/18.5" Breecher Barrel (50145).

    I like the Mossberg 500 Persuader, but isn't the Maverick the same thing? I just can't get past the price tag on the Maverick 88 Security- $189 @ Academy!

    it depends on what kind of deer hunting you are doing. If you are in the thick woods under 100 yrds go with the shotgun. If at all possible don't by a mossberg cause in my opinion they are kind of cheap. Save a little to go with your 400 and at least get a remington but of course benelli is my fav.

    If you are not in the thick forrest go with a centerfire. I'm a huge remington 700 fan. I have 3 or 4 and love them.


    Final answer,

    Everybody needs a shotgun and since you don't have one i would buy a shotgun, just not a moss.

  8. I agree with jw you need a shotgun, but I have the moss 500 and love it for what I do with it is a good gun.

    It seems that it is leaning towards the shotgun. I do not turkey/bird hunt, just for HD.

    +1 on the shotgun.

    I always have prefered the Remington 870 over Mossbergs. But even a Mossberg is better than nothing. Anyone who values the safety of thier home should have a scattergun.

    You should check out the 870 Home defense model. It comes with a 18.5" BBL and a mag tube extension. I put a heat shield and a top folding stock on mine, it looks frickin sweet!

    BTW, 870's have dual action rails, mossbergs don't. I have seen feeding issues on a couple mossbergs, never had a problem with my 870, my room-mate's 870, or my brother's 870.

    NO MAN should be without a shotty. Mossy 500 is nice; personal preference is the Rem 870. With various barrel and choke options, you got yourself an all-around hunting/sporting/SD weapon. But whatever brand/model you choos, you gotta get a shotty.
