    Should I get a Mossberg 500 All-Purpose or the Mossberg Flex 500?

    Whatever your heart desires. By the way Chewy, have you ever shot a mossberg 500 with 3'' shells? If you do a lot of shooting, you may reconsider.

        I like the modular system of the Mossberg Flex 500 that enables the shooter to easily change the stock, forend or recoil pad for any particular shooter or any given hunting situation.
        Gander Mountain is selling them for $450.

          The flex is a cool idea but how often do you really think you are going to change it? If often enough then I would get it otherwise I would just get the 500 AP.

            Would just adding weight make a difference in shooting 3" shells? Which shoots better?

                  I have a Mossberg 500 in 410/3"..I shoot 3"Slugs with NO harsh Re-coil at all, Its one of the sweetest shooting shotgun for Hogs from my Air-Boat.

                    Neither. Get an 870 , PA-08, or Benelli Nova.

                      Isn't the suppposed benefit of the "Flex" simply the ability to swap out stocks/barrel, without the use of tools? Seems to me that the tool-less aspect, when compared to the availablity of aftermarket options, isn't very appealing.

                            Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
