Glad to hear all the talk about the great guns mossberg has to offer. We use mossberg guns for every kind of hunting we do, except for squirrel hunting, and they all perform flawlessly. I dont think people should belive all the ads they see on TV about Benellies and Berettas and all those fancy guns that are way overpriced $$$. The Mossbergs cost less and will knock down turkeys just as well, in fact better, than all those other guns. I also think that 870's are not as good as there made out to be. My dad had a turkey at 50 yds and all he could see ws the head and it never moved once after he shot it. My uncle tried to shoot one that far w/his 870 and missed and he was using same choke and shells as my dad and the shot was easier. The 500 is a very good gun. i shot my 1st turkey w/it and my dad shot one w/it 3 falls ago. Mossbergs are AWESOME GUNS, i love them.
Hunt for thunder chickens for months at a time...you know that's right
