    Mossberg 500 pump action Shotgun

    How does this shotgun fit into the scheme of magazine size, is it 5 rounds only?

    All the 500 and 590s I can see on Gun City are 8 shot or 6 shot. But then the Maverick 88s say 5+1 capacity but the 500s just say 6, so those might actually be 5+1 which would be legal.

    I bet anyone $100 Tipple is going to start importing hard out 3 1/2 inch magnum chamber pump and semis so we can still jam eight 2 3/4 shells in them legally. The loop holes they are leaving open are already so obvious.

    Not if the Commissars read this.

    It is supported by all concerned that pump-action shotguns are 5 round of listed chamber size - max mag capacity. Different shell sizes was discussed at length but was agreed to remain at 5. Take it to the stupid, and a 200mm 12 gauge custom - but seriously you can't just get rid of 12 gauge shotguns or Otago would drain and turn into a rabbit-induced desert of useless land...
