Mossberg Maverick 88 Field
I am looking for an all around shotgun. I plan to use it for trap/skeet, waterfowl (well all birds), deer, as well as turkey. I am still in college and funds are a low. I would really like the Remington 887, but I don't think I can afford a $400 shotgun at this time. I saw a Mossberg Maverick 88 Field today in a local Wal-Mart for $187 dollars. WOW! Is that cheap! I know Mossberg makes a pretty good shotgun, but there next shotty starts around $350. Why is the Maverick so cheap? Is it going to break after 100 rounds? Is the Maverick a gun that I could go shoot 100 rounds in a trap match and be ok? Could I go Quail hunting and not have issue's? And is that front ball sight replaceable, with say a fiber optic sight? My dad has a bolt action 12 gauge that was his first shotgun, it was all that he could afford when he got married. I would deffinately be following in his footsteps with the Maverick, seeing how I got married 3 weeks ago :smile:.
All chime in are appreciated, thanks!! :yup:
