I have been thinking about buying a semi auto shotgun - I have always shot pump action - I don't really like the sights on the 930SPX type gun - and have been considering a Mossberg 930 turkey gun -- it has a ported 24" barrel, pistol grip stock and looks like a solid gun. http://www.mossberg.com/products/default.asp?id=10&display=specs model #85265 I have an 870 with an 18.5" barrel as my main HD shotgun - it is 38.5" - the Mossberg is 43.5" long - doesn't seem like that BIG of a difference - Buds has them for $522 - seems like a fair price - add a extension + a new follower & spring + modified choke and I am right at $600 +/-. I like the idea of being able to switch out the chokes - Any experience with the 24" 930 turkey gun? I have never shot a ported shotgun - any problem with shooting one in the dark? Give me your $.02 worth.
