    How many Mossbergs do you own and if more than one which is your favorite?

    I’m not sure since that tragic boat accident. I haven’t had a chance to take inventory. I was so upset when the propeller exploded and everything went in the water.

    I’m sure I still have the lever action 30-30 carbine, and the model 500 door breacher in 12 gauge.

    The 12 gauge is definitely my favorite.

    Still can count my Mossberg children on one hand but one tends to be a problem child and is always running away and getting lost in the woods. But my youngest, a Shockwave, gets the most use riding daily on the tractor or in the jeep. She (is that still a correct pronoun) stands proud and ready to say hello to Mr. Bear!

    Don't leave home without your Mossberg!

    Regards

    One. A 12ga M500A modified with Knoxx Sidewinder kit for 10-round drums or 6-round box mags.
    I used to use it for 3-gun competition. Started out with a drum and could speed load w/ boxes if I need more.

    I think I'm up to 5 now.

    The 935 is my fav of late. Its a turkey killing beast!! My 930 is a close second for the same reason.

    Only 2 at the moment, both MVP rifles, one in .308, one in .223.

    I used to have a Mossy 500, (24'' true cyl), but I sold that when i gave up shotgunning...

    3, and each has a place and its own purpose. That's a toughy!

    Until this year, only 1. But as you guys would imagine, it has been carried a lot. I always considered my 500 to be my workhorse gun.

    I admit my sickness willingly. 3 M500’s, 1 M590A1, 2 930’s, 1 SxS and a M702 plinkster. With a family this big it’s hard to play favorites!

    That is quite a family. I'm envious. :)

    But aren't you on a pistol-buying spree at the moment? :D There IS the MC1sc, though... ;)

    Crap. I was buying really good pistols a LOT lately. But yesterday I bought my second Mossberg shotgun; a Maverick 88 Security with the 7+1 capacity. For $204 plus tax I can use it on my 4-wheeler or keep in my truck and not give a shit about it coming up damaged or stolen. I coated the barrel and magazine tube with RIG and I might swab the bore with some CLP, and then it becomes a beater.

    So answering the poll: I now own TWO (2)

    Just added my 3rd Mossberg, and 2nd 930, with a JM 24"

    Plan to build it out for 3gun open division with all the goodies and return my SPX to its tactical roots over the winter. Hopefully I can find some shells before the next match season too!

    Haven't been on here for a while but I guess I'll chime in. I own one, it's a newer 500 Field model I've had since high school. It was the first gun I ever bought, I chose a shotgun for versatility on a tight budget and it was well worth the money.

    I agree with @nitesite, this is a great poll. Talking politics is good and all but with the crowd on here it really kinda feels like preaching to the choir after a while.

    I’m up to 7 now. 2x Maverick 88s field models for wife and kid duck hunting/ 2x traditional 500s (one is crown pigeon grade)/1x 500 Turkey thug/ 1x 930 Waterfowl/ 1x Shockwave

    I’ve become obsessed with collecting Mossbergs. I have a weird attachment to them now.

    Just getting here. I am up to three..... a Model 44US(c), an ATR100 in 243 Winchester and the MVP Scout. I may be picking up a Patriot Predator in 450 Bushmaster, not a given just yet.
