    Latched on to a Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge at my favorite pawnshop. It's on lay a way and should get it about mid January. Also has a 601 in 20 that should be coming home with me as well.

    It's always good when you can find a good home for neglected arms ,,,,:D

    Glad to see you got one, nice gun. Makes a good deer gun with the Federal slugs, write up at NRA site gave the 20 gauge Federal slug about 1800 fps at the muzzle and still about 1200 foot pounds at 100 yards. Somehow a shotgun doesn't seem to frighten people as much as one of those black army rifles. As I get older, I like the lower recoil of the 20 gauge and with bird shot, turkey loads, buck shot and slugs, it is a very handy weapon. Wife will shoot 20, will not shoot 12 ga, that alone makes it a winner for me.

    12 ga with 00 buck is great for two legged predators or animals rearing up on the back legs 20 ga / 16 ga great for small game I hunt all the time with an old Ithica 16 ga well for the past 40 + years

    Got a good look at the other shotgun while making a payment on the 500. It's a 600CT in 20 guage. Basically it's a 500 sold through chain stores. When the 500 comes out the 600 goes on lay a way next!
