i dont have any 12 gauges. i got a 20 ga mossburg 500. during hunting season it has a rifle stock, and aftermarket 26" barral w interchaingable chokes. in the off season it gets its 18" barral and pistol grip put back on it. i want a 12 ga for hunting so i can keep my 20 ga in off season mode. plus a 12 ga would be nice for turky, as well as using buck shot, when i want durring deer season.
