Mossberg Tactical Persuader
- Price: $409
- Barrel: 18 inch
- Capacity: 5+1
If you don’t want the bells and whistles of a Benelli and you’re just in the market for a clean, honest shotgun, then the Mossberg Tactical Persuader makes a solid case.
It’s a traditional pump-action shotgun with a pistol grip. You get six shots and the sleeve on the stock holds spare shells.
Solid Engineering In The Mossberg
The Mossberg Tactical Persuader comes with a 10-year limited guarantee and that is the whole basis of this gun: dependability.
Owners report that it simply keeps going like the Energiser bunny…
It isn’t as creamy smooth as the Benelli and it doesn’t have the modern day styling, massive capacity and short body of the Kel-Tec KSG we featured recently.
An Old School Shotgun
But that’s kind of the point. The Mossberg is an old-school 12 gauge shotgun that you would have found on top of a cupboard in the old days.
There’s nothing revolutionary about it. And again, that is the point.
This is solid engineering that won’t let you down when you need it most.
When the chips are down, that’s the most important thing with any weapon.
Mossberg 500 In The Movies
Just because it’s a cheap gun, doesn’t mean it isn’t popular and celebrated in Hollywood. A Mossberg featured in American Heist, The Purge, Seven Psychopaths and more.
Nicolas Cage wielded one in Kick Ass, if only for a moment, but then this is a more instructive and useful video for you. It’s a solid, in depth review that could seal the deal.
A Mossberg Could Be A Stepping Stone
So if you’re building a home defense system, you haven’t got a shotgun in the mix and budget is an issue, then the Mossberg Tactical Persuader could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
You can always trade it in and upgrade later. In the meantime, it’s certainly better to have a shotgun and not need it, than to need one and not have it.
If you have a little more money to spend and you only want to spend it once on a shotgun, then there are options in the mid-range. But if you need the best bang-for-buck, this might be it right here.
Mossberg have legions of fans around the world and they’re not the only budget brand with a cult following. We’ll introduce you to more of them in the coming weeks and months.
