  • VANITY: New Mossberg Maverick 88. Scabbard or Case?

    11/18/2016 8:46:58 AM PST · by InsidiousMongo · 20 replies
    I just bought a Mossberg Maverick 88. I have a heat shield from a Mossberg 500 coming as well as a side saddle. I would like to purchase a scabbard but have no clue which one to choose and if scabbards can support a long gun with a 6-shell side saddle. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm in the UK and sadly we're limited in what we can buy gun-wise, but I already shoot clays and have a gun licence. I recently saw a Mossberg 590 for sale and I really like it. Any opinions on this gun? Worth getting?

    JERSEY CITY -- A traffic stop near the Holland Tunnel yesterday evening lead to the recovery of a shotgun and nearly 200 rounds of ammunition, a police spokesman said. At about 6:30 p.m., a police officer saw a blue plastic drum in the back up a pickup truck that had just passed through the Holland Tunnel toll plaza. The officer stopped the vehicle driven by a Pennsylvanian man to make sure there were no hazardous materials in the drum, Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo said. Police asked the driver Marlon Murphy, 45, of Easton, if there were any weapons in...
  • Anti-Gunners Kill More Jobs with Bloomberg-Style Laws(Mossberg leaving CT)

    America’s largest shotgun manufacturer has decided to move more of its business to the Republic of Texas. The news that O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. chose not to expand their business in Connecticut shouldn’t really come as a surprise. States that have zealously pursued more restrictive gun control policies have seen their historically loyal firearm manufacturers begin an exodus to friendlier locales. Mossberg has decided to move more of its manufacturing process to Texas in light of Connecticut’s recent legislative attempts to demonize their industry; such as implementing a confiscation registration process, and outlawing future sales of various firearms categorized...

    When MSNBC's Thomas Roberts announced the new line of Duck Commander guns on January 3rd, he was joined by Len Everett of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Everett claimed Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, made his controversial comments to sell guns to conservative, middle-aged, white males and criticized the Robertson family for selling the kinds of guns used in mass shootings. Roberts used leading questions to guide Everett in making these points throughout the segment. For example, Roberts introduced Everett by pointing out that the new line of guns includes a "semi-automatic pistol" and "two semi-automatic rifles." Moreover,...

    Gov. Rick Perry speaks wistfully — almost lovingly — about a rifle he recently fired while he was at a range in Leander owned by the manufacturer LaRue Tactical. “I’m incredibly passionate about a well-made piece of equipment,” Mr. Perry said in a phone interview last week, “whether it’s an automobile or a weapon.” After the visit, LaRue posted Mr. Perry’s results online. From 100 yards away, the governor took three shots and grouped them — two shots hit the same spot — mere millimeters from the center of the target. “That was pretty good, wasn’t it?” Mr. Perry said,...

    Connecticut pols strike deal to expand assault-weapons ban, restrict high-capacity magazines"Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday which would include a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead. The proposal includes new registration requirements for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets. The package also creates what lawmakers said is the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender registry, creates a new "ammunition eligibility certificate," imposes immediate universal background checks for all firearms sales, and extends the state's assault weapons ban to 100 new types of firearms...
  • Mossberg expanding MVP series with new Patrol rifles

    02/06/2013 7:10:52 PM PST · by marktwain · 29 replies ^ | 5 February, 2013 | Max Slowik
    Mossberg is adding four new models of MVP—Mossberg Varmint Predator—rifles to their catalog for 2013. The new rifles make up the Patrol series, and are compact workhorse bolt guns chambered in 5.56 NATO and 300 AAC Blackout. Obviously marketed towards law enforcement and other civil servants that could use a good rifle, the MVP Patrol rifles will no doubt find homes with shooters of all types. The MVP is a Mossberg 4×4 that accepts AR-15 box magazines. Otherwise it’s a straightforward bolt-action rifle with eyes on simplicity and accuracy while still keeping costs down. The Patrol rifles differ from the...

    Outdoor Life ^ | 03.2012 | John B. Snow
    Mossberg’s new MVP rifle is an easy gun to like. It’s a bolt-action chambered in 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. that has the makings of a good all-around varminter. There’s nothing particularly fancy in its construction, but the designers at Mossberg didn’t overlook any critical features either. The result is a very workable firearm that does what it should without any fanfare or pretention. It is like a Lab rescued from a shelter who clearly has a bit of something else in his bloodline—but he hunts hard, is a great companion, and came at a great price. ** Magazine Versatility ** The...

    Shooting as a pastime is getting more and more popular every day. **snip** This is especially true with women, who are leading the curve as the fastest-growing segment of the market. But we still get reports of stories like this one, about Prayse Dangler, who was prohibited to buy a shotgun by her local Walmart staff—because a Mossberg 930 was too much gun for a woman.

    Mossberg’s unveiling its entry into the tactical .22 market with a product cleverly called the Tactical .22. Here’s the press release: Mossberg International introduces the Tactical .22–an alternative firearm for those shooters and enthusiasts who want the look and feel of an AR-style .22 rimfire with an affordable price. Mossberg knows its target market: price-driven firearms buyers (Hecho en Mexico baby!). It’s a bit surprising that they’re so late to the AR-style .22 game. Even slow-mo Smith & Wesson’s tapped the AR gestalt, with a damn nice product too: the M&P15-22, in both standard and CA-compliant version for around $500...

    Excerpt - ~ snip ~ We have been testing the iPhone for two weeks, in multiple usage scenarios, in cities across the country. Our verdict is that, despite some flaws and feature omissions, the iPhone is, on balance, a beautiful and breakthrough handheld computer. Its software, especially, sets a new bar for the smart-phone industry, and its clever finger-touch interface, which dispenses with a stylus and most buttons, works well, though it sometimes adds steps to common functions. ~ snip ~ The iPhone’s most controversial feature, the omission of a physical keyboard in favor of a virtual keyboard on the...

    It is a well-known fact that terrorists killing our troops in Iraq are not afraid of the M4 and its 5.56mm bullet -- but they are terrified of shotguns. Enter the AA-12. No felt recoil, high explosive rounds, gas-forged and heat-treated, this shotgun may give terrorists a run for their money.   Destructive device: The AA-12 and AA-12 CQB could very well have a dramatic effect on the Global War On Terrorism. Throughout the history of firearms, those firing multiple projectiles have always proven enormously effective at close-to-medium ranges out to 50 yards and beyond. This was especially true...

What I would like to do, is get a shotgun that can be used for home defense and also take to a 3 gun match. It seems most people are using the automatic Benellis, etc for 3 gun, but at 700+, they are out of my budget range. The gun show is this weekend, I've got a budget of about $500, what would you buy? Right now, I'm leaning...
