|I wanted a shotgun that I could use for both clay shooting and home defense, so I needed both a long and short barrel. This product represents exactly what I needed, and at a damn good price. Mossberg 500's are well reviewed and generally thought of as excellent shotguns.
The gun does ship with a wooden dowel rod in the chamber that prevents more than two shells being loaded at a time; however, it's very easy to remove it. Remove the barrel, hold the gun so it's pointing down, and shake the hell out of it until the rod falls out.|
