I stumbled (happily) onto this site while looking for gear advice and decided it would be a great club to join. With little time for real life friends, it looks like I have to rely on the internet. Sad isn't it ? But convenient, if I don't want to hang out today or don't have time. I have passions for good food, good beer, Alabama Crimson Tide football, fixing things and guns. I have had quite a few firearms throughout my life and it took the first 7 years of my marriage to convince my wife to even allow one in the house (she got a great job on the bad side of town). We are both Georgia CC licensed and she carries a LCR and I recently sold my Springer SC40 because I just couldn't stand the trigger making my finger hurt anymore. So for now I just have my home defense Mossberg 500 chainsaw which I modified a little with a Mako flashlight forend grip, Blackhawk Specops II stock, tritium front bead and a couple Kabar knives on the end for intimidation/cool factor and nobody is grabbing the muzzle. Even though it is not CC, I hope you don't mind if I share before and after pics and thanks for having me :)

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Welcome to the forum! I love 500s, as I currently have more than a few of them!
With all due respect, I think the 'chainsaw' configuration is an abomination and sales gimmick. That said, enjoy!
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
