    I bought my first shotgun today.

    Mossberg Maverick 88. Broke her in with some Winchester Universal shells and shot all 100 shells without a hitch.

    She fits quite nicely behind my seats in my Regular Cab...:banger:

    Get an 18.5" barrel and it will be a great home defense weapon. That 28" barrel is great for shooting clay pigeons (or geese), but would be cumbersome anywhere but in an open field.

    That's exactly what I plan on doing with her making an HD shotgun.

    I agree about the barrel. And you can switch them back and forth really easily.

    My Mossberg 500 was a 1 hour project for me last weekend. :patriot:

    You might also put a tru-glo fat bead fiber optic sight. It's so much easier to pick up FO sight than the stock bead.
