for a survival gun, this needs a saddle ring on the receiver block so it can be hung off a webbing sling around the neck. You will need both hands at times, more often than you think - and you definitely wont want to put your shottie down on the ground. Sling is not optional, and the combat sling that hangs the weapon down your front is ideal. Secondly, this magazine capacity is too small ... Mossies can carry 8 + 1 (my tow do) by using a full length magazine tube. 4 + 1 is a bit light, IMO.
Love the gun but tube is just a gimmick suggest getting a food saver (not just for food btw) and some pvc pipe with caps and glue you can then make your own custom kit as big or small as you want ie small last ditch pistol with survival supplies or big ass gun cache with a couple assault rigles shotguns etc with extra ammo and mags
The pistol grip is best for home defense but my right shoulder cuff is torn so a stock is out of the question. Can I get the tube separately and put a 20 ga. in it?
I just got this shot gun. Took it out to the shooting range to test it out. Its got a good kick but it felt the same with all the diffrent types of shells. Personally i liked the hollow tip slugs. The only recommendation i could make is the postal grip other than that its a great shotgun to carry around or for house protection .
Awesome shot gun smoked a few doves last week.
I bought this for the farm to use on snakes origanaly but carry this thing where ever i go now. I did find that federal paper shell kick the least but i even shot a quite a few military grade buckshot out of it and the kick is fine, but then again I'm a man.
Maybe if u guys put a sling on it. Or maybe like a sterling type stock on it. Hey just suggestions
I just purchased this kit for my car. In the state I live in, we are allowed to carry shotguns in the trunk so as long as the ammo is not within reach. I carry the ammo in the center console. I hike a lot in the back woods and come across all kinds of animals and not so nice folk. This kit is perfect for handling any situations I come across.
After Hurricane Katrina, I learned really quick how important it was to have an emergency kit stowed somewhere the looters wouldn't think to look. I purchased this to bury in the yard for safe keeping in case of another major disaster. I tested it out first by buring just the tube with a few non-essential items for 3 months and I have to say I was impressed. Everything inside stayed just as it was when I buried them. That's saying alot since the humidity seems to penetrate everything here on the gulf coast. The shotgun goes without saying, its a Mossberg so we already know it's a quality firearm. Yes, it's a little harsh on the wrist without a stock but hey, it's better then being caught without one. I will most likely be purchasing another one of these.
