    Bought a New Shotgun

    Picked up a new shotgun today at my local gun shop....just went in to look around and what-do-ya-know....bought another gun (I'm weak).

    Anyway I couldn't pass up the deal. Paid $100 for a Mossberg 500 12G with 18.5" barrel, holds 6 rounds, action worked smoothly, finish was about 85%. It'll make for a good home defense gun. Not sure on the year (does anyone know?)

    I'm not a huge fan of the brown wood stock and forestock or the tan butt pad, but for the price and condition I couldn't say no. Does anybody have any recomendations for upgrades on the stock set? What is a good place to look online?

    Man I wish I could find a deal like that. That would be a perfect truck gun for me.

    What a deal. I'm with you, can't beat that price.

    Best places online (off the top of my head) would be www.cabelas.com and www.cheaperthandirt.com.

    Cabelas probably has more choices, but if you can find something at cheaperthandirt, it usually lives up to its name.

    I'm an 870 guy, but I would have jumped on that one.

    My Mossberg is an 835. It'll take 3 1/2 mags. They are good for turkeys and causing shoulder pain. The one I have is a Crown Grade which, as far as I can tell, just means it has a gold trigger. I've been happy with it. It's not perfect, but it doesn't jam and it fires when I pull the trigger.

    I got a cheapie 500c in 20G 4 years ago - hard to not buy these when prices real low. You sure just HAD to get yours - oh yeah!

    I bought a synthetic stock set from someone on a board - forget make but - lots of options for the Mossy's. Just look around. I think ATI does a set which is not too spendy, and easy to fit.

    Thanks for all the input. I purchased a Hogue Overmolded combo kit for the mossy 500 for a price of $38 at ultimate outdoors.com.

    I'll post before and after pics after I get the gun cleaned up and updated.
