    Wow what a resource! Almost what it feels like to strike oil or gold...lots of great info here at Mossberg Owners.com. Stopped by the residence of a local FFL with a buddy just before Christmas who was picking up a new Sig 1911 and while waiting for his background check I happen to ask the dealer where I might find a Mossberg 500. The fellow steps into his "safe", which was a converted study full of new weapons, and the next thing I know I am suddenly the proud owner of a brand new in the box 12 gauge 20" 7+1 Persuader with black synthetic stock and pistol grip kit. Of course I was also suddenly $390 (the cost incl. tax and transfer fee) lighter in the wallet, but I could not be happier. Especially since I did not have to deal with some cocky sales clerk at a retail store or drive all over the state searching for a gun while demand is record high and supply is non-existent. Have not fired it yet (almost too pretty), but did put a few shells through my buddy's 12 gauge 18.5" Maverick...such a thrill! Got a factory Mossberg heat shield on eBay and spent over 3 hours installing it...luckily without scratching anything too badly. Man, that part is a poor design, a couple of extra threads on the bracket screws would have made things a lot easier. If anyone is considering adding a heat shield, just don't...not fun! In any case, I am glad to be among the Mossberg legion here...which definitely is very fun!

    Welcome aboard!

    We've got a great group of folks here on Mossberg Owners and the atmosphere is very laid back. The only thing we like better than discussing each other's guns is lookin at 'em, so be sure to post pics of your new 500. Take a look around and feel free post pics of any other firearms you own in the various sub-forums. Check out our Springfield thread in our "Other Weapons" section. You'll find that we're into a lot more than just Mossberg around here. Jump in on the conversation anywhere and let us know if you have any questions.

    Enjoy the site!
