    I had a longer barrel 88 but it was a decent gun the only reason I didn't like it was it had a none replacable choke, and hard to put custom sites on.

    I've had an 88 for about 16 years. Got it when I was about 15. It's busted thousands of clays, slaughtered a turkey or two and a bunch of doves, even a few ducks.

    Last few years it's been wearing HD gear:

    Bought mine 2.5 years ago for 189.99. great gun. only noticeable difference in it and the 500 is the safety location. sweet gun. I love the 8 shell capacity too! :D
