im the proud owner of a mossberg 146
man this is one fun rifle i love bolt action its way more sporting than automatics in my opinion. although there is a scope on this baby so not much of a chance for the prey.
personally although i have never seen a stainless model 916 before and i am the only person i know of or have seen even on the internet that has owned one, it was a good shotgun to me and the only action it will ever see is defensive, sadly it just collected dust in my house, i have a couple handguns that will do the trick as far as home defense is concerned.
i just wanted to thank everyone who participated in this thread and helped me make a move, no one can convince me it wasnt worth it because i am satisfied and going to have tons of fun for years to come with this old .22 btw its dead on accurate with the shorts i ran through, jammed once before i cleaned and oiled, after that i ran another box of shorts through it ( 50 rounds ) and not one jam.
