    My aunt has a Mossberg 500 Tactical Cruiser with the breacher muzzle break. I want to get her some accessories for Xmas. She has mentioned wanting a sling, but she didn't think the ones at the gun show fit a woman well.

    Anyone have any idea of a good sling for that particular pistol grip shotgun? What other quality accessories do you recommend that are under $50?

    Thanks and...

    Merry Christmas!

    Gear Sector, Boonie Packer, and Blue Force Gear all make good slings for less than $50.

    You can use either a 2pt or 1pt sling...it all depends on how you want to mount it.

    My 590 is wearing an Uncle Mike's convertable sling. I would imagine that it would fit that Cruiser just fine. It is adjustable for length, and can be converted from a 2 point to a three point.

    Edit to add: I am pretty sure they are $30 or under. Not the "tacticool" sling, but it works well for occasional use.

    Get her a real stock before a sling. She might actually hit something then.

    Hm, I had assumed it HAD a full stock. Do they only offer it in a PG-only version?

    Yes.......especially with the breacher muzzle.

    There could be worse things, but most females aren't great with a 12ga, and a stockless 12ga is even worse. Have per put a real stock on it if it doesn't have one and load some low recoil buckshot.
