for around 300 plus tax. not from that site though. my main question is if anyone here knows a thing or two about mossbergs , fill me in, beacuse the there are so many types of 500's out there and i cant really find the differences. i tried google searching but never really get an answer. under 500 is my price range for one and ive read that mossbergs are very reliable. any knowledge of them would be appreciated.

The 500 is a lot like Remington's 870, a standard patrol shotgun. No frills, does the job. Any pump shotgun you are looking into will be utterly reliable as you are manually forcing the next round into the chamber. They all operate the same.

The Remi 870 is a nice shotgun.

Whatever you get, make sure you place it deep in your shoulders

ive heard that they are, but i meant to type under 400, my fault. idk though ive looked into benelli but ive always liked mossberg for some reason. i should look into them more though

another thing.. i prefer a pump action

the sound of a shotgun cocking is usually enough to scare the shot outta someone

I prefer the Mossberg 500 and 590 over the 870 for several reasons. I prefer the location of the safety on the mossbergs, dual extractors vs.the 870's single extractors, and the mossbergs have a non spring loaded shell elevator. However,the Mossberg's fit and finish are not as good as the Remingtons. You really can't go wrong buying either one.

I would not rely on a cocking sound to scare a bad guy.
