    Question for you Marines

    While stationed in Panama in the early 1990's AT Ft, Kobbe, and Ft Clayton; I saw several Marines at the Naval stations pulling guard duty carry a S/S or chrome short barrel shotgun. I was told that it was 10 gauge. Are these available on the civilian market, if so what is their nominclature?



    Thanks,
    Searn

    My guess is it was a 12 gauge (10 gauges are RARE). The Marine Corps has had a Mossberg contract for a long time. Did it look like this?

    Or this?

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Sounds like a Mossberg Mariner to me too..
    Glock 19/FEG/FM HiPowers/Keltec P32 for me. When I can't use my 870,N98 or Marlin .30-30 of course...
