    Is this a decent price?

    Next up is a Mossberg security model 12ga with 18.5 in bbl
    Less than 200 rounds (mostly birdshot)
    Nice and shiny action and bore.
    Cleaned and oiled always after shooting.
    Pistol grip included

    Is this worth $185. Please let me know ASAP before this person sales it, I'd rather have an 870 but can't seem to find one for a real good price.

    Its not a bad price, and its not in one of the cheezey configurations that you see so many mossbergs in today. I would consider it.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Its an OK price. Occasionally, you can buy new at that price. Given the current market, if I were needing a HD shotgun for cheap, I'd buy it.

    I paid almost exactly $100 more for a brand new one a few weeks ago, so yes, very good price!

    I would take it. It's not a steal, but its definitely a fair price.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    See if you can get it for $150. For the $35 saved, you might find a lonesome barrel at a pawn shop. Is 200 rounds or less through a shotgun considered well used? I wouldn't know unless it was used for shooting clays. An HD specific shotgun shouldn't have seen that many rounds in my opinion.

    Well folks the guy sold it, which i'm ok with that. I'm really wanting to get a Rem-870 tactical and i'll just wait. I'm sure buying I would have been regretting it. Thank you all for your input.

    I've seen many let go in my day while I was contemplating the whole deal. Back in those days, I didn't have good forum support like I do now, but I"ve never kicked myself over missing out on a deal while I thought about it. Usually it's for the best...especially if you had something better in mind. It sort of limits disappointments in a way. Without regret is the way to go. (sans remords)
