So I’m new to the shotgun world, and luckily through all that’s going on was able to secure a Mossberg 500. Just got it out of the box, started shooting at the range and unfortunately the safety latch kept creeping back and turning the safety on, forcing the trigger into a lock position. Now at the range, no problem. In a life or death situation, huge problem. I kept my thumb pushing it forward at the range, but in a moment where an extra second matters, don’t want to get jammed up. Now this is a brand new shotgun. Has anyone experienced this? What should I do?

Sounds like an issue for a gunsmith to me. Because I have had some arthritis in my right thumb for many years, I've never considered a Mossberg shotgun. In my opinion, there are better guns with better placed safeties.

The population of idiots is growing by leaps and bounds and presently they are not all able to find employment within the government. So watch out, they are everywhere!
