SHTF/Survival Shotgun: Mossberg 500

My thoughts on the [popup_product]versatile shotgun[/popup_product] as a survival firearm.  I love my 12 ga pump, on the cheap, shotgun.  Forget a high powered assault rifle you have to AIM – blast as you go!

    I got mine from Mossberg. Sorry, but I don’t know the firearm restrictions in Canada

    where do you poop at that camp site? Also, I hope you brought a sufficient amount of marijuana along whilst camping.

    Rem 1100 has been a good shotgun for a very long time! Thanks

    I like the hat. Mine is a Snowy River of similar design. And we both have a fumanchu. And we have similar ideas on the versatility of a shotgun. Only mine is a 12 ga. Rem 1100 autoloader with extended mag.

    It’s actually attached to the barrel ring that connects to the magazine tube. That ring has a threaded hole to accept a sling swivel stud..

    • Parrott63
    • June 23, 2013

    How did you get that sling swivel on your magazine tube?

    Thanks for showing that good prep, and good attitude can work well together. Nice video.

    The shotgun started out as a standard model 500A. I added the barrel, and it’s actually a 20″ vent rib, and it is still available the last time I did a google search. The forarm is a Hoge, and the rear stock is a Knoxx stock, who is part of Blackhawk now.

    • chuckdickson
    • June 23, 2013

    I really like your setup. What exact model 500 do you have and did you have to purchase the barrel separate. I did not see the 21” barrel on the Mossberg website.

    • GunznGear
    • June 23, 2013

    It is a 12ga

    • kkalston1
    • June 23, 2013

    what gauge
    

    • GunznGear
    • June 23, 2013

    Yes, but don’t tell my wife

    • carbineZDH1
    • June 23, 2013

    do you sleep with the shot gun at night

    • GunznGear
    • June 23, 2013

    The Mossbergs that I own have been great guns also.

    I love my mossberg 2,000 shots no issue! I have the 500, 18.5, 7+1. Im running an ATI 6 point pistol grip on the shortest setting just because I love the short length of pull. I bought the Houge overmold 12 L.O.P. and it is almost 4 inches longer than where I run my 6 point. I think it would make it more of a multi platform set up!

    you wouldn’t be able to put enough rounds down range, and you have to reload very quickly. pump works best because it’s not picky with ammo, you can put down enough firepower, and it’s reliable enough. chances are you wouldn’t need a shotgun though. .22 is LETHAL, it’s lightweight and small and it’s versatile. 12 gauge is too heavy. carry a 5.56 or a .223 battle rifle just so you can kill the survivors that wear kevlar. Why battle rifle? versatility between sniper and semi auto rifle.

    I like my 870’s but there’s nothing wrong w/ Mossbergs. I’ve had this Mossberg 500 since the late 80’s, and I haven’t had any issues with this one or the others that I own. I also have a Mossberg 590 Mariner that’s just as old that has been nothing short of 100% reliable, even through training courses that fire over 500 shells in a 3 day period.

    • Kim Heslep

    I’ve had 2 mossbergs and both pump 500’s and they both was crap. Ejected the loaded rd out of the bottom when you needed it to work it wouldn’t… If you haven’t shot it much you might want too. I know go with Remington 870 for all my shotgun needs… Good Luck…

    I like single shots and double barrel shotguns just fine. I am sure that this pump action shotgun shoots all orts of ammo.

    • ziggarow
    • June 23, 2013

    Are you sure the pump action eats (works with) all sorts of cartridges? I am not. But the double barrel break action does. Only the double barrel can be supposed a SHTF shotgun

    My single shot .410 has sent a many a cottonmouth and rattler to the after life.  Thanks
