    Mossberg 500 JIC series

    Excuse me if this is a duplicate post. I searched and found only one topic from back in March.

    I just came across the JIC series for the Mossberg 500 tactical shotguns. Does any one has a review on this series. Also which would you choose? Mariner, cruiser, or sandstorm. I am not familiar with the different coating. I actually see this package cheaper than buying the guns alone.

    If you really are buying the JIC line, go with the Mariner. Otherwise, get at least the Desert, with the polymer over-coat for corrosion protection. Without a dessicating agent in the tube (I didn't see one mentioned) condensation will do bad things. I don't have one of these kits, so Mossy may have put something in the screw-on lid...

    I almost bought one of these before I found my 870. I love the idea of them. Seems like the ultimate Sh*t just hit the fan kind of kit. I too would go with the mariner just for the durability of it. Plus, it comes with the knife and leatherman like tool which seems more usable than the little survival tool in a can or whatever it's called that comes with the cruiser.

    So, when the zombies come you grab the family and your JIC kit and hit the road

    LOL

    When I first saw the Desert camo one I died laughing........Its like Jumbo Shrimp...... Why do you need a desert camo shotgun that comes in airtight, water resistant floatable tube?

    The desert camo one is strictly for the mall rangers.

    I too would aim for the Mariner version as even though it's nickel plated on the exterior and stupid shiny/bling looking, at least it's as noted all weather ready and durable.
    Besides everybody knows that zombies can't swim and thus when they come it's boat owners and island livers who will be called upon to defend the human race against them and rust.

    My son and I were having this conversation recently...

    How does it feel to shoot a 12 ga without a stock?
    I would think it would be a bear.

    Depends on the Load! and also depends on if you try and aim it. Bring a bag of ice. I would defenitly prefer a stock of some sort. But, for blowing door hinges off a door I think it works great.

    Not bad. Kinda hard to be accurate beyond 10 yards or so. My first "bought my own" was a 590, when I turned 18. I promptly put a pistol grip on it. Fun for tilling up the range, but that was about it.

    I believe that this are marketed more for non-shooters who wised up post-Katrinia and realize that they may need to defend themselves when civil society breaks down.

    You could build your own with a top folding stock and PVC pipe.

    Well the reason I was looking at it was because based on the prices at some places they seemed to be cheaper with the kit rather than alone. I am going to wait till the end of the month when the gun show comes and check them out there.

    Seriously?

    Because if it seals tight enough to keep water out and float, then it's tight enough to be buried and keep dirt, sand, bugs, and rust inducing moisture and rain run off water as well.
    Bury the tube with shotgun, a pistol, ammo, basic emergency provisions, a knife, gloves, a saw, lighter & matches, compass, space blanket, credit card & cash, flashlight and folding shovel stowed inside in your backyard or under the doghouse or in my case in my basement coal bin (exposed dirt in the foundation concrete) and forget about it.

    FFWD...Katrina and/or TEOTWAWKI hits and boom you have a security stash that won't likely be washed or blown away. Unlike a big honkin gun safe not likely to be broken into or stolen by looters or draw attention to you if and when the po-po/military/Blackwater shows up to enforce quasi Marshall law restrictions and run a gun grab.
    IMHO this product though on the surface silly and wacky looking is actually a very clever idea and a spin off what guerrillas , freedom fighters, survivalists, and forward thinking people in not so predictable zones around the world have been doing since the dawn of man.
    Burying bones to hide from competitors and predators for later recovery and use.

    Again the Marine variant is the ticket as in the off chance the tubes seal doesn't take then you have some greater protection against rust inducing moisture.

    Janq it was a joke.

    I was just saying Desert Camo in a floatable tube dosn't that kind of contridict one another but its okay. I totally agree with you .
