I returned a rifle that I bought the other day to the gun shop....regrettably. We did strike a good deal though:

I exchanged it for this little scattergun:

Mossberg 930 SPX , 8 rounds of power with an 18.5" barrel. It wasn't even on the rack for a whole day.

Congrats on the shotgun! I have been looking at these myself. I have been hearing good things about the 930's.

I took the Mossberg straight out of the box and 25 assorted rounds of shotgun ammo ranging form Hornady Critical Defense buckshot, slugs, 4 ought, 7.5 shot, a mixed bag. The last round failed to feed - so I reinserted it in the mag tube and cycled the action - bang. I don't think I had the gun locked into the shoulder as well as I should have had.

I shot the slugs at 25 yards; the first three were a clover leaf one hole.

The only "bad" experience was on the 4th slug, the rear sight fell off...so much for checking the tightness of the locking screw! Operator error.

All in all I am impressed by the Mossberg; it cycles a lot faster then my Benelli M1. Although I'd much rather still have the FN-49 the Mossberg was a good swap.

Lots of guys running the Mossy auto in 3-gun so the weaknesses and mods should be getting worked out. They seem to be a solid gun. I was seriously considering one but am a Remington man and am holding out for a Versamax 3-Gun version if/when they happen. In the meantime my old 1100 Competition Master will have to do.

I was looking at those but ran across a used Beretta for a good price. Let us know how it shoots.
