    Last question, I found a new Mossberg 500 combo in 12 gauge. It comes with a 24" rifled barrel and a 28" vent rib barrel with a accu set chokes for $390, would it be worth the extra $110 over the single shot?

    I like mine very much. Its light weight and you can hunt deer or small game with it.

      A repeater is far more effective for bird hunting than a single shot. You will find that you often miss on the first shot but have another instantly for a follow up shot. You can also take multiple birds out of the same flock.

      On top of that, you get an adjustable choke and a slug barrel. The 500 would be a shotgun you could use for a lifetime for all types of hunting. I would gladly spend the extra $110 for that much more effectiveness and versatility.

        Basically an extra barrel for the single shot would cost about $150. So, for the $110 amount you get added versatility plus the extra barrel, plus the benefit of a multiple shot action. By all means, go for it.

                  We came across this thread today, and wanted to wish you well, and we think the shotgun will serve you as well as your great-uncle's Mossberg! Thanks All!
