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 just in the last month went out and got a stoeger o/u 12 ga and put 150 rounds through it the first day good gun for the money do you wont a field gun or a show gun when training your dog just shoot a starter gun you can handel the dog better starting out what do i know my to labs onley placed #1 in field & tryles and both are very good hunting dogs both seasoned hrc
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.
