The Mossberg 930 Pro Series Sporting joins an already successful line of auto-loading target shotguns from the popular manufacturer.
Shotgun fit is a lot like the weather; everybody talks about it, but nobody ever seems to do much about it. Most of us know we will shoot better and be a happier person with a properly fitting shotgun. Yet most of us continue to pick up the generic off-the-rack shotgun and blast away at the clay target range, usually with disappointing results. Like ill-fitting suits, ill-fitting shotguns do not bring out the best in any of us. Mossberg decided to do something about that.
SINCE 1919, O.F. MOSSBERG has continued to deliver innovations to the gun world. The Mossberg 500 pump shotgun has reached sales numbers approaching that of Remingtons legendary 870, and the 500 is frequently seen in numerous configurations used by police and military around the world. Read the rest of the Mossberg 930 shotgun review here.
Got a little cheapo bottom of the line Maverick 88 for home defense and I love it. Our Church sponsors Sporting clays events occasionally, although not really designed for that it shoots fine.
Puzzling why it's taken so long as adjustable rifle stocks have been available for years, and getting better.
The jump to adjustable shotgun stocks is a natural next step.
It’s really difficult to make an adjustable stock. The shotgun is usually bred for multi-mission as the ammo itself demonstrates.
If you’re going to compete, you’ll likely have a gun that is built for specific ammos (such as the 930). If you need an omnibus shotgun, then there are certain things to consider, such as the stock being something that YOU adapt to, not the other way around.
Also, semi automatic action isn’t a one-size-fits-all in terms of ammo. You need to choke it, size it, etc.
We have a 500 tactical but for sporting clays we use our Berretta 391 auto loader.
I’ve a Mossberg 410 bore shotgun, Remington 12 and 20 gauges all pump action. Even own a vintage Iver breech loading 16 gauge.
Never owned an auto-loader. Am I safe in assuming that the main advantage of the auto loader is it allows you to get more lead on target quicker?
How does pump action compare to auto when shooting clay?
Not many will shoot a pump on doubles anymore. In days past, most started out with a pump, so were proficient with it. The semi auto also has less recoil, which is a big deal if you’re shooting 3-500 per day.
When I see “Auto Loader”, I think “Home Defense”.
