When looking to defend your home, or to protect and serve your community or town, you want the best protection you can get. Mossberg tactical shotguns are known for reliability, ease of handling, and smooth operating. Tactical shotguns aren’t designed for skeet shooting, but for protection and defense, and every feature should focus on this.
What Makes a Shotgun Tactical
The first thing a shotgun needs to make it tactical is a short barrel, between 18 and 20 inches, which makes it more maneuverable in enclosed spaces. That also makes it easier to access quickly. There are some shotguns that are shorter barreled also available through Mossberg as well. A short stock allows you to keep the shotgun closer to your body and helps absorb some of the recoil. A rail for mounting optics, such as a Picatinny rail, can be useful, as you’ll likely need more than the factory’s iron sights. A laser can help you get on target and shoot quicker, which can make the difference between life and death. You may want to consider extending your magazine capacity with tubes, though you should not extend it beyond your barrel. Also on the matter of more ammo, it’s possible to purchase a separate shell carrier to allow you to carry extra ammunition on the shotgun.
Why Choose a Mossberg Shotgun
Mossberg has made a name for itself in the last few decades as a maker of high-quality shotguns at affordable prices. They can fire a variety of ammunition, and are reliable. So much so that they are carried by law enforcement officers everywhere. The design of the rifle, and the stocks help to reduce the amount of recoil felt, and make the shotguns manageable and easy to fire quickly. The safety is mounted on the back of the receiver, which makes for ambidextrous usage. Contact us for everything related to your firearms and ammunition needs.
