    Say Hello to my Little Friend!

    Just picked this up on Saturday. Took it to the range on Sunday. It's a real blast to shoot, Mossberg 590 Shockwave. 6 shot, 14" barrel, 26.4" long, and best of all it's classified as a "firearm" and didn't require a bunch of NFA forms & fees.

    I've been wondering how those shot, if they were brutal to hold on to or not.

    John, I was pleasantly surprised how manageable the recoil was. I was using 2-3/4" shells with #8 shot, 1200 fps. Because of the birdshead grip, proper aiming is a technique to be developed. You can't sight down the barrel because the recoil would do bad things to your face. After awhile I was hitting the target at 7 yards shooting from the hip. Very fun gun!

    Rampo, is that considered a "handgun" or something? A 14" barrel? That is cool as hell!

    Yup. Looked it up on Mossberg's website, and is not classified by the BATFE as a gun that needs a tax stamp. It said that local or state restrictions may apply though. Wow, talk about a great home defense shotgun! I would load that up with #4 shot, 2-3/4, and know that some clown who is up to no good, would be in a world of hurt.

    Just got a scabbard so now I can carry it Mad Max style.

    Thats cool...
    I saw a video review on the Shockwave a couple weeks back.....I think? Hickock 45 did it.

    Keltec is making one in 20 ga. Build kinda like a bullpup.....

    That's too much fun, I want one (with the scabbard). I thought the Keltec was priced 2 or 3 times higher than the Shockwave.

    Yea....I see the Keltec is already out.....Buds has it in 12 ga for about $780! it holds 14 rounds!!!
    The Shock wave is smaller and probably much easier to deal with.

    Remington has also come out with a competing model. I like the Shockwave because it is based on Mossberg's 590 series with proven mechanicals and the heavyweight barrel. You can also increase the capacity to 10 by using Aguila's 1-3/4" mini shells and an adapter in the feed well.

    I would rather have the Mossberg myself. A guy I work with has the Kel Tec in 12 gage, and he has already had it back to Kel Tec to have the springs replaced, in the magazine. They just snapped!
