Taking a practical look at the non-NFA 14-inch barrel Mossberg Shockwave (VIDEO)

The ever erudite Clint Smith from Thunder Ranch gives his feedback in an in-depth review of Mossberg’s trendy new take on their M590 with a shorty barrel sans tax stamp.

The Shockwave, with a 14-inch barrel and shaped Raptor bird’s head style pistol grip, is a five-shot 12-gauge that is the same overall length as the Mossberg’s 500 Cruiser set up (26-inches) but functions a bit differently.

Clint spends a good amount of time talking about actually employing the Shockwave in a home defense scenario and gives few tips as to what you should keep in mind about the applicability of the gun.
