it has the dowel in it to but no rattling and i cant wait to take it out bird hunting...
I have basically the same gun Mossy 500 and like your original post it came with a short rifled slug barrel in addition to the longer tube. Might be the light weight, straight stock or something else but it does kick like a mofo. Heavy slugs just plain hurt but not as bad as whats on the receiving end.The only problem I've run into is the wooden dowel to reduce the magazine capacity was rattling so I took it out. I'll fix it when I chase birds other than that I'll be good to go when I call in 5 coyotes at one time with my awesomeness

I agree with you that Mossberg makes a nice product for the price. But there's no need to buy three different Mossy's for three classes of birds. You can get a Mossy combo package, that come with two barrels or just get one Mossy and order the extra barrels as you need them. But hey there is nothing wrong with owning multiple shotguns for different purposes. Hell I do.
Doves and quail would most likely require a smaller shotgun.For ducks you would want a medium 12 gauge.For turkeys you would want a magnum 12 gauge.One gun for all 3 is not going to work too well, in my opinion.My personal view is that Mossberg is the best, but then, that's what I was trained on by the U.S. military.So I would special order 3 different Mossbergs for these 3 classes of game birds.And then get a Liberty Centurion gun safe to store them in.But that's just me. I like specialized guns. I like special orders. And I like the best of everything.Life is too short to settle for second-best.

Dad, will you buy me a shotgun? Lol, my dad bought me my 1st but it was my money I had earned but it was an 870 riot gun. A 3 1/2" chamber may nt be necessary but it is nice to have. I'd say something like an Mossberg 835 ultimag 3 1/2" chambered shotgun and 2-3 barrels could fill every possible need of a shotgun you could have. It can fire loads a light as 2 3/4"1 oz birdshot for plinking and hand thrown trap and everything in between up to heavy 3 1/2" loads for the geese and such. Get a slug barrel as well and add more versatility. Smooth bore short Mossberg 835 barrels are hard to find but can be had and then gun could be used for defense as well.Mossberg 500's can be found dirt cheap at times though, I have passed them up at $125 as recently as this year.
There's no greater feeling than buying your very own first shot gun with your own hard earned money.
