I put this sweet little Mossberg 500 20ga together for my wife. She wanted her own weapon and felt my Rem 870 was a little heavy and the LOP was to much for her, plus the recoil was an issue with the 12ga. When we purchased the Mossberg it had the black stock and she found this pink camo case she had to have. I knew she needed a shorter stock and I happened to find this womans specific stock in pink camo. Now the LOP is good and boy was she suprised when she came home and now it all matches. I hope no one sees me putting shells through it...He He!!!! Also the CDM Gear MT Clamp works great with the TRL 1 Weapons light or any good Tactical flashlight and mount, clean and light weight.

Well you screwed up big time.

You have to be very nice to her as that 20ga will kill a man just as shotgun dead as a 12ga. So if she is talking during a play off game whatever you do, do not tell her to shut up......

So true JD, but that Glock 19 of hers will do the same so we watch the game together and I am very polite to her if you know what I mean He He!!!!

There is a certain WTF? factor that goes with shooting a pink gun. It could just give her the edge she needs...

Meh...not a fan of girly guns. Don't know why women need pink to shoot a weapon, but at least yours will. Mine could be BEDAZZLED and it wouldn't get touched. (Female counterpart is anti gun) Good times though! Maybe you can enjoy some quality 12 gauge blasting!

She did not need the pink stock to shoot, she was fine with the black and preffers black guns over stainless or other options, her Glock is still black. The pink just personalized it a little for her and made her feel good about it because it matchs her shotgun case. Down deep she is still a girl and pink is just a girl thing. Hell, I will shoot it a little myself and I don't care if it's pink and yes I like big black guns not pink He He !!!!


Take Care,

If pink furniture is what it takes to get more women involved it the shooting sports I'm all for it.

We're apparently doing a his/her thing at work with pink and black matching sets lol. I think it's cool she's shooting. I took mine out for the first time yesterday! Good times

So is there any advantage to a 12 over a 20 in home defense?

As far a stopping power at home defence ranges, not much according to guys like Massad Ayoob (Look up a few articles buy him about this subject). There is more ammo types available for the 12ga but the 20ga is a lot lighter so for a women or a situation were multi family members may use the weapon for defence the 20ga works well. Stopping the bad guy is all that matters and a 20ga will do just fine with buckshot in it.

Take Care All,
