I'm sure this will turn into another Ford vs Chevy conversation between Mossberg and Remington, but lets hear it!

Once I pretty much got away from big game hunting, I started buying shotguns. I only have four, three pumps and one SA. My pumps are: 1975 870 Wingmaster 20ga that has two barrels, one fixed I/C @26", the other fixed Mod @ 28". This is my #1 shotgun. Other two pumps are Mossberg 500's, one in 12ga, the other in 20ga. Both field guns. They're too new to have a track record yet, but, show promise at the trap range. They'll get ironed out next upland season. Ca. and Idaho.

Many years ago, our friends used to make-fun of the 1200, saying it was a "junk gun". However, it excelled at upland birds, rabbit, and the occasional varmint. It was not very effective against larger game, however.

I'd say you used them for their intended use. Certainly not "junk guns". Are you going to use the 16's for upland birds? They'd be perfect.

The NIB one is a queen and will remain stashed. The other will likely gather dust, but not for dislike. The cartridge is getting difficult to find, and there are a few 12g's that fill that role.

That looks to be an 870 Express? If so, you are forgiven. If that's a Wingmaster[don't think so], ohhh, that would be a sin!

Joking of course.:)
