    I'd not be in a hurry to get one, especially when they cost three to four times as much as a well proven product. I keep trying but I don't see any advantage to it for home defense that offsets the reduced reliability and increased cost. It would be a really unusual HD event, like one in several million, where 5 to 7 shots of 12-GA buck isn't enough. I have a side saddle carrier on my Mossy 500, but at $25.00, that's affordable overkill and not complicated.

    Additional complexity is why I don't think much of that really complicated Kel-Tech dual magazine pump either.

    I tend to agree. I also thought Mossberg should put a second tube on the 930 yielding 16 shells. Maintaining the basic design.

    Thanks, too steep for me.

    At that price I could get 3 or 4 Mossbergs and just have "New York" reloads!

    Guys, I did't say it was a fascinating price, I said it was a fascinating design. For me I'd be happy with two Mossy 930spx guns and do a NY reload
