If you're looking for an affordable shotgun for home defense or just all around fun, this is it.
9-shot capability, telescoping stock and bayonet lug (always fun to have). Customize it with a picatinny rail and the forearm of your choice and the looks alone would stop a bad guy in his tracks.
Even better, this mossberg is a smooth shot. Recoil is minimal and the action is smooth. With the heavy barrel, it will eat any ammo and ask for more.
Every home deserves a Mossberg and in my opinion, this is the model to get.
