    The 590 is more shotgun than anyone is ever likely to need it to be. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't know why anybody would say that the 590 isn't fit for defensive use. I'm pretty sure the military would be very well served by the 590. The A1 is overkill for the sake of overkill. I would happily take an A1, but the 590 is a beast, as is the 500.

    If it had a plastic safety, you didn't have a 590A1.

    If you can't eliminate the threat with 8 rounds of 000 buckshot and a your M1911 loaded with 8 rounds then you, as a shooter, are a failure in life or it is simply your time to be with Christ.

    Same here. Fully loaded 590 sitting in the safe with a 20G 590 Shockwave lying in the floor, fully loaded.

    First of all, welcome to THR and congratulations on that Mossberg! I'm not a shotgun expert, and to be honest, I'm more of an 870 guy. With that said, I wouldn't turn my nose up at a Mossberg. They seem to be good guns and there's a good chance that it will outlast you.

    110 year old Win 97 and it just keeps going. Even does good at trap & skeet. It is a nice HDG also. The 590 is nice as well as the 870 but when I saw this I had to have it. old 97.JPG

    The steel shoot will score the softer steel barrels of older guns and possibly damage their choke.

    Your modern 590 series guns will be fine.
