Goofiest one in a while!!! Chainsaw...

This is just wrong on so many points...


Big and bulkier than required dimensions that negate any benefit of a short barreled PGO gun.

A short stroke hung shell waiting to happen with what is likely a flexible loopy handle.

The geometric forces not being likely very even and possibly even binding in various points of the travel causing uneven wear and tear on the mag tube and fore stock.

Picatinny rails in excess.

Another home offense shotgun with the silly breacher simulator on the muzzle.

A solution to a problem that hasn't and will likely never exist.

Gotta admit that Mossberg is really "gung ho" about "tactically assaulting" the wallets of mall ninjas the world 'round!!!

I should have put the requisite "swallow liquids before lookin" disclaimer... This thing is spew inducing and even though I just posted it and opened it to see what OOL thought of it... I choked non alcohol beer outta my nose and mouth when the pic opened!!!:barf:

I wouldn't expect this thing to be fired enough for uneven wear to become an issue.

It looks more like the foreend has rails on the bottom and sides and this loop just bolts on to the bottom rail, so it could be added to most anything with a rail in the appropriate spot.

But yeah, that thing is nuts. And not in a good way.

I guess Mossberg didn't know it was supposed to be a joke. The play on words doesn't even work with a shotgun...

Well, as a matter of fact, I do know all about using a shotgun as a "chainsaw"... and here is one more reason for me to link to the original and 100% true story of my "Redneck Tree service"...

http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...k+tree+service

Many of ya'll were around for the premiere of this story but many will have to settle for "re-runs"...

I agree with you Gentlemen. I have to ask have we considered the aspects of it making a better club even if the order of use was reversed and the oponent gained the upper hand (or handle that is)?

That handle looks familiar. Does it come with a weed-eater… er, weed-blaster attachment for yard work?
I seem to recall, Brent uses his 20-ga for stump removal.

I was also thinking weedwacker.

Mine has the same handle and it is a nasty little beast sending stones 30+ft...

Ya'll just don't appreciate the utility of this fine weapon.

It's sole purpose in life is to wear on a single point sling on your off side while you're using your weed trimmer in the yard. When Mr. Copperhead rears his head at you, it'll allow you to do a tactical switchoff to your trusty Mossberg setup with the same manual of arms as your Ryobi to ease the transition.

Don't underestimate the breach adapter on a HD SG.

You may need it to get out of your home in an emergency.

I've performed quite a few ballistic breaches for work and none of our breaching shotguns had any kind of adapter. It is a gimmick.

But I wouldn't have no "whippy" weed eater handle.
