Hello all, My name is Bill, I live in Ventura County, Ca. I just picked up my Mossberg yesterday. It is a 590A1 with the light in the forend. Please bear with me, sure I am going to have a bunch of questions, as this is my first shotgun. I consider it my first gun, I had inherited one years ago, but never fired it before selling. We also picked up a Glock 19 yesterday as well. Both my wife and I are enrolling in classes to learn the use of both of these. I did a lot of research, and went to a shop to hold different ones (and lurked here). Mossberg 590 seemed like what I wanted. Went to the Gun Show, a local shop had this one with the light (which I wasn't planning on), for a decent price. I am like a kid at Christmas, can't wait to get to in the class and put some rounds through it.
