Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Now I Have TWO Shotguns

Got my taxes done over the weekend.  No repeat of last year's bloodbath, this year the non-interestbearing payroll savings plan paid off, so I dropped a little of it on a new gun - a Mossberg 930 JM Pro Series.  Looks a lot like this:

The specs are:
Chamber Size3"
Barrel24" Vent Rib
SightsFiber Optic Front
Overall Length44.5"
Length Of Pull14"
Barrel FinishMatte Blue
So what accessories should I get for it?


Comments have been left noting the rather long 14" length of pull.  In looking at pistol-grip stocks, I see that Choate notes: "The 930/935 shotguns can not be shortened shorter than 13 3/4 inches because of the recoil spring tube that protrudes form the back of the receiver."

I don't think I'd use this as a home-defense shotgun.  The barrel is too long.  For that, I'd stick with my 590.  Its barrel is 4" shorter.  Doesn't sound like much, but it is.
