Just put a Mossberg 500 in layaway, mostly for home protection as it comes with a 18in barrell and pistol grips. A couple of questions since this is my first shotgun. What do you recommend for home protection? I've heard 00 buck. Also with the standard stock, could I use this for skeet shooting and hunting of anykind? Onc last question, can a light be mounted on this gun, and where can I purchase a saddle to attach to the stock to hold addition shells? Thanks in advance for your help to this shotgun newbie.
