At a local gun show this weekend and passed this guy a couple times.

So I stopped and it was priced about right ... nothing special, but what I've seen guns like it for sale at Bud's and on Gunbroker. And as I was looking, another buyer walked up and was interested in a Mossberg 590 tactical style that was sitting next to it.

So I was haggling a bit with the owner and then the other guy was haggling a bit. Seeking an opportunity, I asked what about a package deal?

So the owner came back with a price and I immediately countered with a fair price (I thought) and told the owner that I couldn't speak for the other guy. Made it clear we were both looking for a gun, but the sale was seperate.

We each got about 10% off and I know I was happy.

Looks good. I want to get a Blued 590 one day.

BTW, that's not nickel. That's Mossberg's Marinecote finish. Nickel would be WAAAYY shinier.

It may not be nickel but it looks good.

Very nice indeed--I think the only tactical nickel SG offered is the Remington Mariner 870.

According to Mossberg's site, you're correct. That's news to me. I've never seen that finish in terms of nickel but I have to think it will be rather capable in deterring the elements quite well.

Then I stand corrected.

Might as well just call it nickel then. Sounds better than "Marinecote" :p
