i've been looking for a shotgun for a while now and am so stoked. i originally really wanted a saiga but i can't justify 1k+ to get one and have it converted. i did more research and decided the 500 was the way to go especially since there is such a strong third party market with accessories for it... so if i ever want to go the 'tacticool' route i'll be able to. after i thought about it i really don't need all the frills for my first SG that will be used mostly for HD.

an even better plus is that i found one of the combo sets at Big 5 and it's on sale, almost $100 off ($289 + tax = about $320)! it's the field/HD combo so i get both the 18.5" and 28" barrels which is even better because i want to start hunting and now the birds are on notice.

just thought i'd share my happy moment :D

One word of caution about the BIG 5 combos, the 28" barrel that comes with it has a fixed choke. If you ever think you may want to change out the choke you'll have to buy another barrel, not a big deal, but I ended up spending a little more elsewhere on mine so I had that option. Other than that, its an awesome gun!

Just got done throwing a scope on mine to get it sighted I. For deer season. It was my first gun, and it has yet to let me down in the last 15 years or so. Hopefully the choke on yours is a modified, the. You'd be set pretty well for most things.
