bah..soo many people getting down on mossbergs. there are plenty of uses for them. i had an 835 for the last two seasons. they make good jack handles, fence posts, paddles, crutches, and occasionally they are good for shooting birds. :toofunny:
j/k - i had an 835 that i loved. granted, i did have a re-occuring problem with the ejector screw falling out, but Mossy volunteered to fix or replace the gun. no hassles. instead, i sold it and bought a benelli nova.
i think i had a point i was going to make.....ummmmm....
oh yeah. don't get down on the gun. get it fixed and it should give you years of good hunting. yeah, it may be a little sloppy and rattle around a bit....and it might feel like you're sholdering a 4 foot section of 2x6 instead of a gun, but man o man can they kill birds.
