      Comments about Mossberg 500 Bantam Shotgun:

      I've been shooting the Mossberg Bantam 20 for a while now. It is a sweet gun with a nice finish. It is accurate and so far reliable. It kicks nicely and hits hard. The take-apart for cleaning is a little more involved than some guns, but easy enough to deal with. the chokes are a nice plus, I also got an Undertaker turkey tube that works well with it. It's a real sweety at a great price!

        Comments about Mossberg 500 Bantam Shotgun:

        I have owned many 12 ga shotguns and being disabled, I can only hunt deer now (from a cabin-stand) and the lightness but yet knockdown power and accuracy is perfect for me. No more heavy 12'a for me, this little 20ga (I bought from my grand son) is perfect for ole grandpa. Got me a nice buck Nov 09 (Michigan). Great for new-starting hunters and ole farts as well..

          The best gun that I have seen for home protection.It is useful for men,ladies, & youths also. The shorter stock can be replaced with a standard stock if desired. I see no reason to do so as I am just 5'9" & an older gentleman. I feel safe & protected.

              Comments about Mossberg 500 Bantam Shotgun:

              Being pretty short and petite, this gun was perfect for me. I am 5'0 and 90 pounds and I have no problem with the recoil. I am also left eye dominant, but right handed, so I shoot lefty. Ejecting shells across me were not a problem for me at all. Besides, you usually only have one shot anyways, right? The only thing I am not impressed with is that the trigger guard and safety are made of plastic, not metal. I have heard of a lot safetys breaking on the gun.

              Otherwise, this gun is fantastic! I love it!

                • A:

                  This little lightweight 20 has a very nice spread-pattern for all bird hunting, remembering it is a pump and not an auto. Light enough to lug-around all day but good knock-down power for all (short Range) hunting 80 yds or less for me, it never fails (well my eyes do every once and awhile) but the weapon never has. Very affordable price as well. This is my 5th Mossberg, I shall retire from deer hunting with this one and pass it down to my youngest grandson "Rick-Colton"..But not quite yet, it's almost Nov.
