Mossberg 500 Persuader 20 GA followed me home.
I gave it to my daughter 5 years ago. She has her GP100 that she likes better and doesn't want the shotgun around the kids, so it followed me home.
It's a really nice little shotgun:
Right now it's sitting in an out of sight but easily accessible location, hammer down, with five 3" Federal Power Shot Magnum #2 Buck in the magazine, none in the chamber. My wife is comfortable with picking it up, racking one in the chamber, to be ready to use it. She has no trouble manipulating the shotgun. She likes the idea of it being there.
I need to mount a light and laser on it. The $300.00 streamlight isn't an option for cost reasons. I found this one by Elzetta. Is it any good? They make rail that mounts on the other side but that seems clumsy to me. I'd rather have the light and laser more conveniently located. The light is my number one priority. The laser is an option that I can live with out.
I also considered getting a short rail mount that clamps to the magazine tube just ahead of the forearm and putting a TLR4 on it to have both a light and a laser.
I find myself spending hours surfing trying to figure out what a good cost effective setup is to have a light and laser on this shotgun. Finally came to my senses and decided to ask here.
