    Yup, its just a Mossberg 500 with a few differences.

    I love my 88.

    I have the 7+1 20 inch barrel.

    You can get all of the accessories for it that you want. It goes bang everytime I pull the trigger. It eats up any ammo I feed it. And it was a lot cheaper than other options.

    + Cheap - better to have a gun now than be saving up for the Benelli you never get
    + Cheap - less $ gun = more ammo/practice
    + Splits the difference between 500/870 controls. Probably the best config period
    + 7+1 without extensions and other shaky structrues
    + Perfectly reliable weapon
    + Lot's of accessory options

    - Not quite as sturdy as a 500, less sturdy than a 590; What are you doing that that really matters?

    Can't hate period. I have a 500 20" for the record.

    The reliability of the Mossberg 500 with a more convenient crossbolt safety, and cheap too. The only downside is that it doesn't come with wood furniture.

    All Mossberg shotguns are very reliable HD guns.
