Mossberg 590 12 gauge Pump Shotgun

Since it was the joint winner of the first Homemade Defense poll, I figured I would give a little information and gun pr0n for all you out there. I love the Mossberg, and I think it is the best pump shotgun on the market and I recommend every one buy one (or a Model 500). They have a 3"chamber and unlike most other firearms, there is a vast variety of munitions for the 12 gauge. Everything from slugs to buckshot, birdshot to bean bags and rubber rockets, flechettes to flame rounds, and now, even grenades. Versatility is a wonderful virtue, especially if you don't have a lot of guns.

Some reasons I believe the Mossberg is the best pump action shotgun around:
  • It has dual action bars for increased reliability,
  • it can be stripped down to clean without tools
  • it has a 8 round tube mag
  • it comes with a heat shield
  • many versions come with a Speedfeed stock
  • it is tough
  • it doesn't malfunction
  • it is the main shotgun of the USMC
  • it is great for zombies.
Lastly, they are very affordable, much more so than any other gun in its class. I also believe that they are in quality and durability, unmatched.
