    I've always thought of Mossbergs as the Marlins of the shotgun world. Not very pretty and tending toward a "clubby feeling" in the hands *but*- they are affordable, shoot straight and go bang everytime you pull the trigger on a loaded chamber. What more could one ask of a gun that will spend at least some time in the wet muddy bottom of duck blind/boat?
    Two observations about the review:
    First, a factory drilled and tapped receiver to accommodate a scope is a very good idea. There are quite a few States here in the US that only allow shotguns, muzzleloaders, and handguns for deer hunting with a firearm.
    Second, Mossberg has been using tang mounted safeties forever. I like them. My only gripe is they no longer make the safety button in steel. They are all plastic now.
    Regards,
    Bob Hunt

    Yeah your right Bob, that safety switch/button needed to be steel.
