Stick with the Mossberg there is no substitution for reliability. I have a couple of escorts in my shop and I can say they are no Mossberg. I do say for my own opinion there is no other shotgun more reliable than the mossy. If the rack time is something you can overcome with the Mossberg from training. I know the Escort is faster than the Mossberg but the real question is would you rather be faster on the rack or would you rather know that the gun is going to work everytime the gun is racked.
