Nova tactical. Their lowest price pump. Like driving a Ferrari after owning a 1985 Mossberg 500A since 1985. Smooth and to the point, the Benelli is a nice shotgun, but I'm a 500 guy and can buy 2, maybe 3 used 500As for the Benelli price tag.

Saw this post. Started looking around. found a video and enjoyed the hell out of it.

The shooter's had his hat long enough it's slid down his head so you know it's his real hat.

Seems like a fun gun..............

I picked mine up fairly cheap. That thing is a clay pigeon busting machine, points and swing very nice for me.

My only complaint is the price of barrels. I'd like to find a 18 inch or so barrel for social use or one cheap enough to cut down.

You did good on the Mossbergs, they run $300-350 used around here.

$300-$350, there's not much difference between new and used shotgun prices in Florida.

Damn. Dirt cheap up here in Mossberg Land...............well, Mossberg land for generations until they ran to Texas, out-sourced most of the production of virtually every part to Mexico and proudly claim "Made in America" which actually means assembled in the USA. Good thing about this area is the abundance of 80s and 90s Mossbergs. A brand new Maverick 88 Hi-Cap in desert gray goes for $200 here. Brand new 500 between $275 and $300. But I'll take an older 500 any day.
