I've been looking for a new gun to buy. Prices have hyperinflated lately. Then I got some good advice from Uncle Joe: " Buy A Shotgun". I started doing research on this weapon they make good home defense weapons. After perplexing awhile I decide to but a Mossberg 500. It has dual extractors, the safety in the right spot a decent Amercian made product so I bought a beater from my local pawn dealer. I cut the ventilated rib off the barrel and cut the barrel down to 18 1/2 inches. I repainted the barrel. I cleaned the gunk out from the receiver. I bought a Tacstar side saddle for the left side of the receiver and shotshell pouch for the right buttstock . The wepon now can hold seventeen rounds on board great for a bug out or a zombie apocolapyse situtaion. The front sight is a Hi Viz fibre optic great for low light and rapid target acquistion. It has been drilled and tapped with a Weaver scope mount. It has a BSA combination laser/flashlight mount combo. I also mounted another flashlight/laser to the barrel. Before you pull the trigger you most clearly identify the target and lasers can help blind your target along with the flashlights.
