Re: Mossberg 500 "Slugster"
I have a Mossburg 500 and it serves its purpose very well. Like others have said, it's not pretty. But with my Nikon 2-7 power shotgun scope, it's a nice deer gun for me in Allegheny county. 3" groups or better at 100 yards can be expected. I use Lightfield sabot slugs.
Here's the way I look at it... This gun is a tool made to do a job. It does it well. What more do you need? My guns are all hunting guns, not safe queens. I drive deer through brush, swamps, etc., hoist them up and down to and from my treestand, I've fallen with them and I don't worry if they get beat up a little. That having been said, I don't intentionally abuse them, but I use them without fear of them getting scratched up. I'd rather carry that kind of weapon than carry a showpiece.
