    I have a Mossberg 500 coming that way:  drank some bourbon, watched CNN, decided I needed a home defense shotgun.  

    Since I couldn’t find one, I bought a turkey version with a 20 inch barrel.

    ... you drank bourbon,  watched CNN, decided on the new shotgun... 

    wouldn't be cheaper just to change channels?



    Congratulations on the new shotgun

    You now have a shotgun you can use for Home Defense or Turkey Hunting.  What the heck is GunNut going to do with a .270?  He has a new house, so no cockroaches, eyes are too old for mosquitoes, and if he misses, it might crack a window

    You'll torch out the throat running it at "glass breaking" pressures!
    That's all I got.

    You guys are on a roll! But can a .270 projectile puncture a silk dance veil?

    Never in my wildest dreams did I even suspect that Snake was a Jedi master.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Really,   all isn't lost  though Gun Nut, it'll probably be a pretty good starter platform for a 280 or 6.5 06

    Just tell everyone its a 6.8x64 that was based on some old military cartridge from back in 1903.  Dont mention that its a .270.

    The plan is to shoot it and if it doesn’t shoot it’ll swiftly become something else!  I wasn’t even going to shoot it but  the original barrel with the matching serial number and proof marks is still on.  I owe to the rifle to at least try...

    Some fool at the factory marked the barrel rather prominently...  Damn Belgians have no shame... 🤬

    Well we will find out how I did with this purchase today since the UPS truck is headed over with the rifle.  UNFORTUNATELY since it's now one of my Fathers Day gifts wife will hang on to it until Sunday Morning.

    And have someone else shoot in my new gun FIRST?!?!?!?  I don't love ANYBODY that much!  :D

    A few years back my daughter (or as I refer to her, Mini-Me) was just about to have her first sip of coffee for the day when her little sister (half-sister from my ex's second husband) asked what coffee tasted like and could she have a sip.  My daughter sleepily pushed the cup in her direction and all of a sudden she pulled it back and took a sip.  When her little sister asked why she did that she said "You are NOT getting the first sip of the day off my coffee!!!"  I love that girl!

    Coffee and guns are serious stuff........ :)

    Welcome to the dark side, Bro. I've had great luck with factory Federal 130 NBTs on whitetail, and handload 160 Partitions over RL22 at 2850 fps for everything else. You're gonna love this chambering.  ;)
