View Full Version : Hello
Hello all I just got my first tactical shotgun! Its a mossberg 500 persuader. I put a barrel mounted light and took the plug out, What else shood I do?
shoot it...learn it's particular character. Find out what works for you and what doesn't. Then modify to suit your needs...
I just wanna shoot it. I didnt get a chance today before it got dark.
With any luck, my 590A1 will be in tommorow.
:wavey:Sweet congrats on the 590!
spinweezy, great shotgun. My Mossberg 500 is my HD shotgun. see how it patterns at HD and range and further out. find a load you shoot well and load up.
Just shoot it, and try to run 4-5 different types of SD ammo to see if it has a preference.
For HD range 7-10 yds cheapo Wal-mart winchester or remington OObuck is fine. If you want to extend the range try some Federal and Ranger OObuck and use a large target like a B27 to see which one patterns better at longer range.
I get all 9 pellets in the scoreable zone on a B27 at 25yds with the Federal LE132 buck load.
Enjoy, I love my 20" 500, and prefer it to my 870 Police Magnum.
Thanks for all the advice. Looks like im to sick for work but just right for the range. :rofl:
Take a training class from a reputable company.
Avoid wasting money on cheap accessories. You've added a light, now add a sling and go shoot it as much as possible.
Sling, Ammo, and have fun blasting one day...get used to it and train with it.
congratulations, and keep it simple!
