Growing up in Delaware hunters were restricted by state law on the use of rifles and handguns for hunting, mainly because Delaware is so flat and densely populated.
Bows, muzzle loaders and shotguns are the choice for many hunters because of their limited range. But what I loved most wasn’t just hunting, it was those lazy summer days cooking hamburgers and hot dogs, drinking lemonade and then retiring to the back 40 and shooting clay pigeons.
They were simple times, but those memories have stuck with me all these many years and I often wish I could return to those days even if for a little while.
The shotgun that was used in my family was the Mossberg 500. For over 50 years Mossberg has been producing shotguns like the 500 series, (Mosseberg recently produced their 10 Millionth 500 Shotgun!), that has been putting dinner on America’s tables and providing hours of recreational shooting for the whole family.
