    Ok I have a question my hubby's birthday is coming up and I want to buy him a nice hunting gun for deer season.

    His buddy told me this is a good gun: Mossberg 12 Gauge shotgun Combo.
    It's a 500 model has a scope. it is a pump gun also.
    It's priced at: $349.00 is this a good deal.
    What are your opionons on this gun?

    I like my Remington .243
    My son has a Model 700 youth .243

    I know some like to hunt with a shotgun. I like my rifle.

    Rifles are illegal in Ohio. So rifle is not an option for me.

    Mossberg makes good stuff. The big question I have is do you trust your DH's buddy to know his taste in guns?

    I have decided for sure now.

    Once I am financially able I will become an ex-patriot. I will live outside the US and renounce my citizenship. I don't think anything short of Ted Nugent becoming President will change this course of action.

    Quote:I grew up in Illinois. It was not illegal to own a rifle there is was illegal to hunt deer with a rifle. Pretty good Idea from my perspective as the range of the rifle given the smaller hunting areas there was a real possibilty of shooting someone you did not want to shoot.

    six hnters in a 5 acre timber area was not a good place to have a rifle with a lot of range.

    Quote:The 500 is one of the most popular shotguns out there, and it's a good one. $350 is a pretty good price with the scope.
