    Hi Guys :)

    I couldn't find a Shotguns Forums to post this so I'll just use the ol' Pub for this little bit o' fun. In the winter, its pretty snowy 'round here so I have some time to dick around with projects that I haven't the time for in the spring, summer and fall. So, I fig'rd it'd been a while since I tested my hand at inhouse shotgun defense. So, here's what I come up with so far and its been a blast! :twisted: Here'a a Mossy 9200 that I picked up in need of a little TLC. The stock was trashed, it wouldn't cycle properly with 2.75" magnum loads, and the trigger sucked! So, I cutdown the stock, replaced some springs, honed the trigger parts, and putta sling on 'er. She's a sweetheart now and hasn't jammed a single time since I started usin' only 2.75" mag loads and replaced the springs and o-rings. I gotta 7-round mag extension but I had to send it off to get it parkerized. This is the stocker. Also, I sanded all the furniture down and restained it dark and satiny. I still gotta seal it, but all an all, I love 'er even if she's legal. :roll:

    I put this little Mossy 500C together for my gal and she loves it! An inhouse 20 guage defense shotgun with 3" mag 00 Buck is pretty damn formidable, IMHO. I picked up a cheap one at Auctionarms.com for $120 to my FFL. It was a youth model and the stock was too small for her so I cut it down and got her a set of synthetics, if we wanna do some skeetin'. But, it stays right next to the bed, along with her S9-A1. God I hope we never need 'em for that purpose, but better prepaired to kick some arse than to be illprepaired and get yer arse kicked, I always say. This little bundle of joy is great fun and recoils hardly at all. <shrug>

    Good job, Wulf! Here's my bump-in-the-night boomstick:

    [​IMG]

    Mossberg 590 - I keep 4 rounds of #1 buck in the tube and the speedfeed stock is loaded with 2 1oz Brenneke slugs and 2 1-1/8oz Brenneke slugs.

    (Horrible picture - one day I will talk my girlfriend into taking some good ones)

    Nothing fancy here. Just sawed the barrel off on my Ithaca Model 37 12 ga. pump to a legal 18.5". As an afterthought, I had a gunsmith crown the muzzle and install a new hi-viz orange sight on the rib. Loaded with five rounds of 00 Buck.

    That's my 1912 Remington .22 pump on top. Whenever I can find somebody that will pay me the $250 I got in it, it will be magically transformed into the best $250 pistol I can find, caliber, make et c. to be determined with availability. (Hint. Anybody wanna buy a nice rifle, recently reblued, shoots .22 shorts, longs and LR, octagonal barrel, nice wood, excellent condition?)

    And below both guns is a WWI bayonet my dad picked up somewhere and left to his middle son (that would be me). :mrgreen:

    mines like syntaxes but mine is a 500 without the speedfeed stock and the bayonet lug.
    parkerized with the heatshield. put a sidesaddle on it. 20" barrel with 8 shot tube.
    keep the sidesaddle loaded dont keep anything in the tube mag fear it will swell

    want to get another with a sidefolder stock eventually but AK/AR15 projects have priority for the moment.

    maybe other rifles sections needs minor editing or a shotgun section needed.

    nice versatile weapon the shotgun.

    bump in the night gun first I reach for my pistol then I fight my way to my walkin closet/armory for the shotgun
