All the above are good advice. They also have Terrible, terrible triggers.

Last week I shot the 1st round with the Remington 1100 then 2 with the Ruger Red Label. I shot one more round with My Mossberg 535. Got my best score with the Mossberg. It just fit's me the best. boski is correct in that other shooters will avoid you if you are new to the range. Once they get to know you they don't care what you shoot.

Sorry to raise a year old post from the dead......but I show up with my mossberg 500 and no one is thinking I am inexperienced when I am shooting 24s and an occasional straight on american skeet. Also people saying a mossberg will not hold up to the volume of shooting in clay target sports....what planet are you on...... you should see the mossberg 500s and 590s we had in the armory over in Afghanistan when I was in the service .....these guns were torture tested and beat to hell.....had thousands and thousands of rounds shot through them at the range and breaching doors.....they never had anything replaced on them and some were built in the 80s one thing is though they were thoroughly cleaned and inspected after each use and thats why military weapons stay in circulation and last so long. If you take care of any gun it will last a life time.

I've put well over 1k rounds through my skeet gun in under a week before.

Sure, a Mossberg will hold up to 1k shells (or less) per year (under 20 shells/week). But they aren't going to hold up to 100k+ rounds, which is what a majority of competition skeet guns experience.

Yea what ever you say.... you're pretty little over under skeet gun would not hold up to the abuse and number of rounds that the military puts through them.... like I said I was there and I handled fired and cleaned and carried these guns everyday..... were not talking you're 3/4oz skeet loads..... either thousands of rounds of 2 3/4" & 3" magnum buck shot and slugs through countless numbers of troops going through training with those same weapons over the course of 30 or more years of service on each gun. I fired more rounds in one week of training than I have in years of shooting competition skeet.

And you don't think those guns have gone through rebuilds numerous times, or had a majority of the parts replaced in that time frame?

Nope..... some of them have had parts replaced but you see how a Mossberg is made all the internal parts come right out and all are interchangeable for that reason.

I really like my Mossberg 535. I still use it about once a month for a game. It just fits me better than any other gun I own. I just picked up a Browning BT-99 and love it also. I also have a Ruger Red Label and love it for doubles.

I don't buy into post about how the Mossberg won't stand up. It may not be as pretty as my Ruger or Browning but its a solid built gun.

Yes people are fools that think the Mossberg 500, 590, 835, 535 etc..... can not stand up to high volume shooting. I guess they think a $2000+ over under is the only way.

+1 I'm sure if you researched enough you could find someone dissatisfied with just about any gun or manufacturer.

There are reasons why Mossbergs are not used for serious clay target shooting.
There are reasons why Mossbergs are popular in the military.
The reasons for both of those uses are virtually opposite.

The reasons why target guns are what they are: expensive, single- or two-shot guns.
The reasons why Mossbergs are military guns is that they are NOT expensive, single- or two-shot guns.

One performs best for precision target work, one performs best for beating down doors. Pretty simple.

My comment about service has to do with a Mossberg Silver Reserve 20g Youth and broken firing pins. It has been at the repair depot more times and longer than it has been shot. Not my gun, and bought against my advice, but....

I have gone over this 100 times in another thread.... those guns are not Mossbergs yes they have there name on them so they have to take responsibility for them and they do far to often because they are cheap turkish imports.... hopefully they will drop them soon so it stops destroying there reputation because they have a lot of innovative products out now. They should just leave the Turkish junk to the strictly importing company's like Tristar and Cz

You are absolutely right, but it was sold to my GF as a Mossberg by Bass Pro. In fact, she was told it was better gun than some because it was a Mossberg. Mossberg is only hurting themselves by selling this stuff.

I use my Mossberg 835. I have thousands of rounds through that shotgun and it has never jammed or failed me. I also use it for waterfowl.

I do have to cycle a round unlike using a O/U but the action is smooth and I have learned to use it well.

It is by far my favorite shotgun, I trust it more than any other.
