[5 of 5 Stars!]I ordered this 590A1 on Dec. 7, 2012 received it yesterday Dec.14 which is remarkably fast for this time of year. When I inspected it at my FLL I opened the box and a simultaneous wow happened . Then the clerk called over his co-workers to check it out. A few customers gathered around to take a look. This gun says "Don't mess with me!" I took it home cleaned it then remembered I have an old M-7 bayonet from my Navy Corpsman days, it went on like it belonged there. With that affixed it screams "Don't mess with me!" I put it to bed in a black Voodoo shotgun scabbard.
Now for the good part. I took it out to my ranch land this morning and put about 50 rounds of #4 shot through to break it in. It's smooth and accurate. This evening right before sunset I took this bad boy out to the brush. There they were right where I expected them. Hogs, the bane of every Texan rancher and farmer's existance. I dropped a 250lb boar with a slug right on the mark at about 75 yards and much to my surprize I was able to take down a second 170 pounder on the run thanks to the fast target acquisition of the ghost ring sights. I have to admit the second shot although devastating wasn't a clean kill, but, that's where the old M-7 came in handy I'll spare you the details.
If you're on the fence about which shotgun to buy jump down on the 590A1 side it's a lot of firepower for the money. The 590A1 is now my go to gun for hogs and home defence.Show More Reviews...
