Mossberg 500 Tactical
The Mossberg 500 Tactical is based on the venerable Mossberg 500 12 gauge shotgun. With an 18" barrel and 4+1 capacity, this is a perfect choice for home defense. Added to this is an AR-15 style pistol-grip collapsable stock with a 5 round side saddle, effectively doubling the shell count.
A heat shield keeps the hot barrel from coming into contact with the shooter during extended shooting sessions. A fore-end strap keeps the support hand right where it should be, ready to pump the next round into the chamber. This package has proven to be one of the best options in a defensive firearm at any price.
