I found this forum searching for shotgun forums, so somebody must be doing something right. Seems like a small forum, but that's all the better. Less intimidating than a larger forum for sure. I'm picking up my first shotty tomorrow, a Mossberg 500a. From what I've researched, it's a decent, reliable gun for the price. I'm from Missouri, but I work in Texas now as an electrician. I'm planning to move here permanently in March. I'm brand new to shotguns, and firearms in general, so go easy on me lol.
