    The difference is PSA is about the cheapest place to find quality parts (not cheap garbage that falls apart). Mossberg is on par price-wise with it's competition while offering inferior parts and worse customer service. It would be the same as getting PSA shipping lead times but paying Cabelas prices.

    Much like I said with PSA, you get what you pay for in most cases and your situation is a prime example.

    So far, my situation hasn't really proved anything... They waited a while to respond to my e-mail and were very apologetic, explained why it took them so long and asked for some info so a shipping label could be sent to me. If I wanted quicker service, I could have picked up the phone and called. I'm sure this is a busy time of year for them, it's hunting season in a lot of areas. The issue I'm having with the gun is relatively minor, in my opinion, so I didn't call or follow up on my e-mail. Not sure which part of that is so terrible up to this point. :notsure:

    I will continue to document this process and see how it all plays out. Obviously, for my own sake, I hope they take care of me, but just for shits and grins, I'll update this with any info I receive along the way. Just to be clear, I have pretty much no brand loyalty when it comes to firearms so I have no interest in defending Mossberg, I'll just tell it as it happens. I researched this purchase before I made it and decided either the Mossberg or the Remington would suit my needs just fine and ended up with a Mossy based on price point.

    I'll check at bass pro when we drop by, i'll also check at academy and the auto shop.
    I'd like to take my new shotgun deer hunting (if they're close enough), but i'll have my 30-30 with me.

    To give you an example, I recently had my first ever need for a Glock warranty repair in over a decade of shooting them w/countless rounds. I made a single phone call & after about 5min on the phone had an overnight shipping label in my email inbox. Gun was back in my hands in less than a week & that was after trouble shooting an unknown issue, correcting it via replacement of half of the internal parts, test firing by three different techs & shipped back via overnight. That coupled w/the fact that I've never experienced a failure prior with LOTS if hard use is why I prefer Glock over other handguns. My personal experience w/Mossberg & that of close friends if mine was nowhere near that & part of why none of us own Mossbergs anymore. So yeah, from the guy telling you to be patient w/PSA's customer service: Mossberg's customer service sucks IMHO.

    :annoyed:
    I was gonna wait till friday to order my gun, but decided to call the pawn shop and see if they'd hold it no charge if it came when i wasn't home, they said they would, so i went in to order my gun and they're out of stock, so pissed at myself for waiting.

    Now to decide if i want to order a BPS or wait 4 months for the m3500 to get back in stock.
    Also open to suggestions for a budget semi auto that shoots 3.5''

    So i just got my first real gun over the weekend. I had been pretending with a BB gun i sort of inherited from my older brother. I ended up getting a S&W M&P9 4.25" barrel. I worked a bunch of overtime at work a month or so back, and decided going into it that the overtime money was going into a new gun. I started by deciding 9mm and full size, then went to internet research to see what was being put out there as the best, the worst, and everything else so I would know what to avoid, and what is good. I made a list and got it down to 4 guns. Then the wife and I went to a local shooting range and rented some different guns to try out. I liked the Walther PPQ best, and she like the M&P best. I knew it was going to be something for both of us, and I felt good about the M&P, so I went to a gun show and got it. Ended up paying $666.25 for the gun and 7 magazines (2 came with plus 5 extras). I had the gun almost 24 hours before taking it out shooting for the first time. Just like my truck, i am already looking into mods for it, not sure whether to go with laser, light, or both on picatinny rail. also have thought about grip laser, and found one place that has green instead of red lasers for the picatinny. when i did take it out shooting, i went through 200 rounds of cheap ammo in under an hour.

    next gun i think i will go for is remington 870 with blackhawk ops spec, the 12 gauge that has a pistol grip with full stock and 8 shell capacity from the factory, then I will probably follow that up with a Walther PPQ in .40 cal.

    Congrats, the M&P is gonna be my first handgun as well.
    A good light that i have experience with is the stream light TLR-1, it's bright (almost to bright for inside use, especially if you have white walls), and it throws the beam just as well as the LED maglites.
    Thanks for the link, i was gonna pick up some 3'' buckshot to help break in the gun i was gonna get (stoeger semi-auto), but I'm gonna get a BPS so i won't need to break it in.

    Hey guys,

    I just want to see if anyone had thoughts on the SAR arms handguns, they make a cz75 copy and every time I pick it up it feels really comfortable in the hand. They are made in turkey and imported by EAA.

    I work in a gun shop (as of a few weeks ago...love it so far), and we have one in there, so I get to handle it often enough.

    In seriously thinking about one in 9mm

    The price on them is nice at 300$ as well

    Never heard of them, but they sound like something worth looking into.
    The HP is really big, we just have the regular TLR-1 (We use it as a HD light and a coon light)

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Best I can offer is to tell you to take one out and shoot it to see how it feels when you fire it. It may feel great holding it, then when you shoot, it may slip out, or fire where you don't intend for it to go.

    if you are thinking about a browning BPS, you might also look into the new ithaca 37s, the old ones are awesome (I have one and love it), and I have heard that the new ones are really nice as well.

    http://www.ithacagun.com/featherlight.html

    that is advice that I offer to others when I'm working lol, I was just curious if anyone has had any experience with them. at the price point I personally would be willing to buy before I shoot it, but then again, I have found that I can tell that I will like some guns, others I have to shoot first though.

    Thanks for the link, i'd look into them if they shot 3.5'', but they only shoot 2 3/4 and 3''

    How much did those 1000 rounds cost you and where did you get them from?

    I've always wondered how safe and reliable these would be. Gunbot.net always has a lot listed.
