    Got a New Shotgun, Escort 12 Gauge, pretty sweet, destroyed some clay pidgeons with it for a couple hours in the mountains gettin it broke in, got a light for the rail yesturday also, just one from a local store here but is pretty damn bright and also defensive strobes, exactly for it's purpose of protecting my home.

    Second pic was after we (my buddy and i) shot all our pidgeons and we found a ton that people missed below us, and the stock holds two rounds also, and the sights are sweet.

    Datson, some Turks who make Benelli copys pretty well I guess, they are selling them at Fred Myers now for $550 I believe, I got mine from a gun shop in my town for a better price, I was going to get a Remi 870 but gave this one a try, I know the Remi 870 or Mossberg 500 would do the job great also, I'm thinking about getting a different stock, not that this ones bad or anything but I've seen some pretty sick ones.

    Nice! Looks like you guys had a fun day

    I like my maverick 88. It's my fun toy. Essentially a Cheaper version of the 500 at half the cost, makes it cheap enough I can put it through hell, but still durable and reliable.

    I have a Maverick 88 as well, you know most of the 500 parts are interchangeable? :) For $189 I couldn't pass it up.

    Looks like it's a nice tactical, rails all over! Mine was 349, Fred Myers sells them for $550 here haha but good home defense, or whatever. It's really accurate and my gf has no problems shooting it, nor would an old lady

    My Benelli is definitely my primary shotgun, but I love my little shorty Maverick 88. It's durable, reliable, and a solid gun for under $200. Plus it's pretty loud when you rack it. Definitely a great GTFO of my house gun.

    Nothing like a good shotgun friend :) I still used a High Standard Riot 12 pump from the 60's. You have a nice one!
