While searching for material to write an article about, I came across the video below and since Eric (aka Iraqveteran8888) always does quality stuff, I decided to use his latest video that was published on YouTube just yesterday.
While I’m always in the market for a new gun, I can always depend on Eric for a good, informative and unbiased opinion on the firearms he spotlights in his videos. In the video below, he shows us his latest purchase; the Mossberg “Shockwave” .410 gauge shotgun. After watching the video, I must say that I was rather impressed with this firearm. Not only is it compact (which makes it good for close quarters and home defense), even though it’s a .410 gauge, it still packs one helluva punch and quite frankly, I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end when this weapon is fired.
Even though I have owned several Remington shotguns in my life, I will say that Mossberg does make a good product and I wouldn’t have any qualms about using one to defend my home and family with.
About Mossberg from their website:
“Since 1919, Mossberg® has been the leader in introducing important design breakthroughs to the firearm industry. Many product features pioneered by Mossberg® are now the standards by which all modern firearms are judged. Never content with the status quo, our men and women constantly strive to improve and update the capabilities of all Mossberg® products. In accomplishing this goal, we recognize that each improvement is a part of the “Shooting System” approach and most are designed to fit the shotgun you bought years ago.
Our design and innovative edge is truly changing the way shooters use shotguns and rifles. We are particularly proud that our Mossberg® pump shotguns are the only shotguns purchased by the United States government that meet or exceed Mil-S-3443 specifications. It is this basis of unquestionable quality that drives Mossberg® to bring reliable, well-built shooting systems to you at an affordable price.
The shooting sports have been an American tradition for generations. Today, thousands of sportsmen and sportswomen focus their energy on the betterment of the shooting sports by participating in national and local organizations. We sincerely appreciate these efforts, and we salute all future members for continuing our proud heritage.”
I will say this, all I do is provide you with information and you can do with it whatever you decide. Beneath the video I placed the specs on this particular weapon, so that you have enough information to make your own decision as to whether or not you want to purchase this weapon.
