    "Simmons Olympic Rib alone is worth more than $250 isn't it?" On any other gun, probably. But a Mossberg is still a Mossberg, no matter what frills you put on it. No serious competitor would ever consider a mossberg as a competition gun, and most club shooters have no interest in one of these guns because they deviate dramatically from what they are use to (field guns).

    Yeah, Mossbergs are pretty utilitarian. But if you want to have some fun sometime, leave all your gear at home and go to a new club, play dumb, and try to outshoot the snobs while using a field grade Mossberg (or other low-end shotgun). When you run 25, pick a good shooter nearby and ask, "Heck, is that all there is to shootin' these skeets?" Regardless of how the conversation goes from there, end it by saying, "OK, I gotta go get more bullets."

    Good clean fun!

    GW22,

    It works even better when you're wearing a pair of bib overalls, carpenters apron, and a straw hat. They some how overlook you when the calcutta starts. Like shooting fish in a barrel;)

    Nice touch, SS. It's important not to over sell it though. Playing dumb and setting my box of "bullets" on the ground at each post usually gets the ball rolling. Sometimes people start giving me advice even before my first shot!

    GW22,

    Do you make sure to use a piece of tape over the end of a few shells?

    You wouldn't believe what me and a buddy of mine used to do back in the 80's. We would find clubs that were within a 3hr drive that had some pretty good pots. We could hit them a couple of times before they got wise.

    It didn't take long for word to get around about 2 guys in a LTD:)

    There's Mossberg 500 Trap on Gunbroker now for $289. Looks pretty nice for the price.

    If you can break 100 straight from the 27 with this gun, it's worth it's weight n gold. If not, give it to the boy scouts....

    Putting a Simmons rib on a Mossberg is kind of like putting a mink coat on a sow.

    A coat of white paint and that dude would rival Foggy's "skunk grade" M 12:)

    i owned 4 of them over the years bought 2 when they were first came out in the 80's all shot real well , ran a couple good high 90's with them , and shot a 100 straight one afternoon with one using greendot loads , never heard of them shooting a foot anyway off but rumors do run, for the money in them days i was in heaven with them think i paid like 250 for them new in the box , in the mid 80's , id buy one today to just have , sold all mine when i thought a higher priced gun was the way yo go , found thats a much of bull in all the years of shooting the mossberg it never did break down, and cant say that about alot of high end guns ive owned ,

    The good thing about a M500 is they will last a long time. The bad thing about them is that they will last a long time.

    Mossberg makes shotguns for the military and their reliabilty requirements are quite stringent. Production guns aren't controlled as tightly during mfg but they're still amazingly reliable for the money. They're not too sexy, though. Maybe that's why I recently traded one for a nice Leigh dovetail jig. Not much is sexier than adjustable spacing of pins and tails!

    Mossbergs meet or exceed all mil-specs - about the only shotguns that do - ...doubt if any of the high dollar trap guns could do so. Built to last. Best Regards, Ed

    The only shotguns on my installation were Winchesters. Model 12's and 1200's. I retired in 2000. Maybe things have changed.

    yepper joe your 110% right on, to many shooters think you can buy a good score, and buyin a expensive gun means you dont need to practice on shooting

    as they started slowin down the production they started sending them out like that one , i had both of them the nice cut monte carlos came out first then the high comb straight stocked ones like that one , which they moved those right into the slug guns that they made for a scoped cantaliver barrel
    the pads all said supreme on them like that also in later models
