Me too. It was my mother-in-laws. Loved that gun, being a smaller woman it was the perfect size. When she moved into the nursing home it must have gone to a grandchild at least I hope so.

I bought my son a charles daily 20 gauge pump youth model at walmart for $154.00. came with a certificate you send in along with the youth stock, when you kid outgrows the youth stock. they will send you a reguler size stock at no charge. Thought that was alright.

Bought my first Mossberg 500 in 1967. 12 gauge 3" magnum, 30 inch full choke. I beat a lot of horses over the head with it, won 6 turkey shoots, killed several deer with it (could only hunt with shotguns in Fl years ago), and I still have it. It was the only shotgun I owned until last week when I bought a single shot 20 gauge kids size H&R to keep in the Jeep for snakes and other things. It's cheap but doesn't look it. It is also made in the good old US of A. Oh, you can one hand it too. :lol:

Age doesn't make you forgetful, having way too many stupid things to remember does!

I use my 500 for everything. I've got a rifled slug barrel for deer season. I've had no trouble with it.... ever.... Even the iron sites on the slub barrel are prety accurate

A cousin of mine had one. We used to hunt with grandaddy a lot when we were teenagers. Don't know if he still has it or not. Don't think I ever shot it.

You know what we are saying though CB, do you want it to be his favourite shooter, or a gun case collectors item.

I took my model 12 out last year for one goose hunt. It felt like I'd betrayed my best dog leaving that 870 in the cabinet. The Model 12 can go to one of the kids, the 870 stays with me till I can't tote it no more.

If you let another gun catch his fancy, then that 12 may just end up shelved. Course then again, maybe they should be?

Can you tell how old a Model 12 is by serial number?

My Grandson shoots a youth model Charles Dally (sp).
He loves it, he is now 14 and started shooting it when
he was 10. Oh forgot it's a 20ga.

I had a Ithaca model 66 .410 when I was about 7 years old. Moved up later to a 20 db then to a 16 auto and then to my dads 12 auto. When I was young the 12 help me to some degree overcome my skills at the time.

I still like my Sweet 16 as well as a good over under 20.

I like my model 12 in 16 gauge,but I hafta admitt,my favorite shot gun is a Ruger Red Label in 20 gauge.
I dont know why Ruger put the 20 gauge out before the 12 gauge,I didnt have the patience to wait on a 12,now I would'nt trade that twenty for two 12"s,it is a sweet dove gun...........good luck

That is kinda funny. The Ruger Red Label 20 was the one I was thinking about. They do a good job on quail as well.

I've been very happy with my 500. I've upgraded now but I usually still have my 500 in the truck as back up just in case someone has problems with thier shotgun.

My first semi-auto goose gun was a mossberg super waterfowler 12 ga, 3 in. mag. I used it for years it was jam proof and a heck of a goose gun but alas i wore it out completetely. I guess putting 4-5 cases thru it a year will do that. I replaced it with a gun i bought from an estate sale a browning hump back 12 ga. 3 in. mag. it was in mint shape when i got it, i have had it for 4 season and put 4 -5 cases through it every year on ducks , geese and upland birds. Something to be said for those old guns they were made to last with high quality steel not cheap steel and plastic. Going goose hunting tomorrow morning the snows and specks pulled in a couple of days ago on my pea feilds we'll see if i can limit tomorrow. Nothing like good homemade honker - hog breakfast sausages.
