Went to local gun store today and they were having a sale on the Mossberg 500 persuaders so I took one home. 20'' barrel and 8 shot tube seemed desirable for home defense. I was going to purchase an AK74, but I just couldn't pass up the deal I got on the Mossberg. I told them salesmen I was buying it as a birthday gift to myself, so he threw in Remington 10 rounds of 2 3/4 OO buck for free. Gotta love the local stores. Pics to come.
