Mic,
Nice set up you have there.

I like the Mossberg pump guns. In my opinion they are better than the recent productions of the Remington 870.

The 870s now are no where near the quality of the older models.

My favorite for the HD is the Mossberg Shock-Wave.

I was an 870 user for my entire career as a LEO, but being left handed, I found that the Mossbergs worked better for me. I recently got a chance to shoot a Shockwave and I liked it. I think it would work well in close quarters.

For forty years,our issued shotguns were 870s and they were still going strong when I retired.

I found that shooting the Shock-Wave (Mossberg) required I use the "push pull hold" to help negate the modest recoil.

This 870 has been my Jeep gun for 35 years. My brother-in-law was manager of our TG&Y store back in the early '80s. He called me one day and said the store was closing and firearms were being marked down. He put this one under the counter for me. After work I went by and picked it up for about $70, maybe less. It was a long time ago.
I put the extended mag, Pachmayr Vindicator grips on it, had the barrel cut to 18.25", bead blasted and re-blued. BAM....Jeep gun!

Tom,
Nice set up there. I like the way that you have the extended magazine supported.

I have never seen a pump action shotgun either worn or shot out.

They just keep on chugging and shooting right along.
