I bought a few raffle tickets at a charity Sporting Clays shoot back in early May, didn't think much about it. Then the other day I get a call and they tell me I won!!!

Here are the pics:

Ducks Unlimited soft case, seem like a nice light/medium duty case. It'll be good for bringing it back and forth to the club.
Has individual pockets for both barrels, receiver, ans a spare pocket for choke tubes & stuff

This is how it came out of the bag, it was filthy!! I don't know if was "test fired" by the folks that were keeping the gun or if that's the way they come from the factory...

Here it is after I cleaned it up a little, also added the choke tubes...

Here's a shot of the right side of the receiver:

If anybody wants any other shots let me know....

It's definitely not a $2,000 gun, but it's not bad, I'll let you know how it shoots on Sunday....

Question is what should I do with it?? Keep it?? Sell it?? Cut it down to 18" and "Bubba" it??

If you are interested in selling it I would be intered in buying it. I have been looking for one of these mossberg DU combos for my dad. He is getting ready to retire and has always wanted an over an under shotgun. He has been talking about this gun ever since he saw one raffled at the DU dinner. Message me please if you do decide you want to sell it.

Ok, I finally decided.....

I'm selling it, I just don't use it and it's a shame to have a gun this nice just sitting in the safe...

Darn nice looking Mossberg. Someone will get lots of "clays" enjoyment out of that set. I have both 12's and 20's or I'd for sure be in on that bidding process. I attended a Duck's Unlimited shoot 4-5 years ago and my ticket got me a Benelli Nova that has been a very fun shooter.
