Mossberg is a good choice! My 500 is really easy to shoot.
I have a Mossberg 500 as well. It's a fine shotgun, although the plastic safety doesn't tickle my pickle. You can replace them with an aftermarket
metal one, but I usually just leave mine in "cruiser safe," that is, full tube but empty chamber. Sellier & Bellot 2 3/4 00 buckshot out of that
20" barrel makes a beautiful spread inside of 40 feet or so.
There isn't much else that says "Get the hell out of my house" like a shotgun slide being racked. In addition, law enforcement officers *hate*
going up against a criminal with a shotgun. Seems that those little pellets have a knack for finding a way around vests.
That's why it's my chief "go-to" gun for home defense. Criminals can get kevlar, too.
