I looked on Mossberg's website and see no mention of an O/U. As far as the BSA shotguns go. if the company doesn't even have a website I wouldn't buy from them. I found both the BSA shotguns and the Stoegers on ableammo.com.. I would stick w/ the Stoeger they are a reliable name that most people have heard of. I am probably gonna get one for my birthday ( July 17) :getdown:

Joel, ammo for a .410 or 28 can get pricey. You can use a starter pistol to get the pup used to gun fire. If you want to get him used to you carring a gun and marking falls then just use a plywood cutout.

Mossberg makes O/U's, you just gotta look real hard to find em. You can get a cheap beater O/U instead of a mossberg and you'll be just as happy. That gold inlay is sucky for the extra money you pay when you could be getting a better looking gun for less like a baikal, but you are wanting a training gun so looks shouldn't matter.

I shoot a 20ga stoeger and just recently purchased a BSA 16ga classic sxs.
Now the stoeger works great and you won't find a better functioning gun for the price.
So far the BSA has shot perfectly, it's a big difference in price but I feel I got more than what I paid for. Beautiful gun.

The mossberg looks great on the website but in person I was let down,
a little rough around the edges.

You might want to check out some of the Charles Daly or Traditions,
we've had great luck with them the last few years.

Stoeger - Good guns, a little rough inside but backed by Benelli USA warranty.

BSA - about the same as the Stoeger, but I prefer Stoegers warranty

Mossberg - made in Turkey, have had lots of problem with the Khan's and one so far with mossbergs.

If it were me I'd go for the Stoeger because if something goes wrong you have a way to have it fixed reliably.
