This gives me warm fuzzies . . . Fellow blogger Mitzimagpie, formerly blogging at Miz Minka's Musings and now at The Purple Magpie's Nest, should by now have taken delivery of her new Mossberg 500 shotgun.
She says she chose it after reading my series on Firearm Recommendations for Home Defense - which makes me very happy! Mitzi, I'm glad you found that series of articles to be of use. I think I should apply to Mossberg for a commission . . . it's led to at least a dozen shotgun sales that I'm aware of, and probably many more that I've never heard about.
May your new shotgun serve you well, and give you much enjoyment - and may your life be sufficiently peaceful that you never have to use it defensively! Don't forget to put up a range report on your blog after you've tried it out.
