Mossberg 500 "Road Blocker"

I am thinking about getting a "Road Blocker" as a HD and range gun and was wondering if any of you guys have one and what you think about it.. (pros and cons)


I dont want to spend mega money on a shotgun and this one fits my budget nicely

I really like the extreme tacticool nature of this and the Rolling Thunder, but I feel like its useless without the spec ops stock IMHO.

NOT USELESS forgive me. I just mean its extremely MORE useful with a nice spec ops stock. Then IMHO it becomes a HD SOLUTION / SYSTEM weapon rather than a boomstick toy/breacher. But when ya gonna breach something?

I can always add a stock to it.. I believe

it just has that badassness factor going for it with the M82 style muzzle brake

'badassness factor"???? I thought it was for comic relief? Seriously, have you ever seen professional shooters using anything like outside of the cheesy Steven Segal straight to DVD discount bargin bin movies? I have yet to see anybody buying such a thing but the day I do, I hope I have enough tact to not laugh in their face for it....but I probably lack that level of self-discipline. Oh well.

I think it has no practical use at all. Just extra weight that isn't needed

I am all for individuality but for me personally the road blocker is all show and no go. When you compare the pros & cons you quickly see that its useless other than to look cool. Young guys put "looking cool" very high on their priority list. (I know I did back in the day so I am guilty of it too)

I will say this: When I was looking for my first boomstick a few months back, I was introduced to the popular yet WORST EVER local gunshop and what has to be the worst ever complete Napoleaon Doosh 21 year old gun shop worker, who told me NOT to be a 930 SPX, buy this Benelli M2!!! The 930 SPX is a piece of crap (and we don't have one) but we have this AWESOME M2 (for $1200 instead of $600) ... and then he showed me the Road Blocker, and actually said he would laugh in my face if I bought one.

I came INCHES AWAY from buying it just to see if I could have a legitimate reason to go across the counter on this doosh, but it was a lot of money to punch someone.

Thats a wierd salesman? I hate unrequested opinions from gun shop salesmen. I always respected the salesman who is more than willing to tell you what he knows as far as the pros and cons of a gun. You know like so and so gun is great for pocket carry or so and so shotgun is great for lefties ect ect...

But to just come right out and kill a sale by disrespecting a potetial buyer is just dumb. I am not an XD fan for my own personal reasons, but I would never tell anyone not to buy it if I was a gun salesman.

Education makes for a better salesman. Alot of gun salesmen dont take their craft serious enough.

Most folks already know alot about the gun they are about to buy. They do a bunch of research (like here on Glock Talk) then go shopping.

My take on the problem is gun shop workers mistakenly believe that it's impossible to acquire the weapon or knowledge anywhere but there. Like because any old Joe can't open a gunshop, you have to get it there. Un, dude , there's this thing called the Internet. It's smarter than you. And it's probably got a better price than yours.

I actually decided I would do all my online purchases and transfers at my most hated shop, just so they could see all the business they're not getting n

I think that never have I seen so much useless stuff put on one gun coming out of the factory. Stuff that helps make it a good HD gun is not there and stuff that makes it a lousy HD gun is all over it.

If wannabees with Rambo fantasies would quit buying this kind of junk manufacturers might go back to focusing on good defensive weapons.

3 round mag, weighed about 10 pounds IIRC, and didn't recoil nearly as bad as one might think. A little big and bulky for CQB, but out in the open it was a great weapon.

A 12ga is considerably lighter, holds more shells, has way more choices of load types, is more versaitile and has more than sufficient power for self-defense.

But if you gatta have a heavy 10, go for it!

Badassness factor. Would that be a technical term? Exactly what does that do in terms of HD? Sounds more like a range toy/fungun type orientation.

He's referring to the monstrosity released by Mossberg Marketing & Sales, not the old Ithaca Road Blocker, which could actually do what its name implied in the day of cars that actually had a lot of steel on them.
The Mossberg is basically just a 500 with a pistol grip and huge muzzle brake on it. Mossberg hopes these will draw the attention of people who will buy it for looks.

Sadly, the real Road blockers have been replaced by the spike strip. Personally, I think the old way provided a more lasting solution to the problem.
