If there are any Moody Blues fans here you will know the title.
Point is, today is my birthday and I am six-hundred and thirty days late on 22,000.
Anyway, wanted to buy me a gift and found a pawn shop orphan Mossberg 500A 3" vent rib in what looks like factory camo for STOOPID cheap.
Came with a ported barrel and factory chokes. She got a full field strip exam/cleaning today. Looks like a win.
Pics to follow.

I am way past 22,000 days and the Moody Blues are one of my favorites. Good luck with your new firearm.

Got my chores and errands done this morning and loaded up for the range. The Mossberg did not disappoint. With the cylinder bore Accu-choke it threw slugs very well. I may throw a scope mount on it for some venison homicide with a red dot sight I have laying around. With the factory twin bead setup a pie plate at 100 yards is not a problem. Definitely worth the piddling $225 that I paid. ;)
I brought out my 700 tactical .308 with Magpul furniture that includes removable magazines and magwell. Still 2" high at 100 yards and ringing the 325 yard 12" x 12" 1" thick plate every time.
I also had to cycle out my carry ammo on the G19 and 34. Those two just never fail to impress me with their accuracy and reliability.
As I said above, retirement does not suck.
