    Yup, but he wants to buy a non-restricted. No much worth doing at Target (Calibre gun club) with a non-restricted.

    don't know but,i've got a close to brand new winchester SX3 wood stock for 600$.if you take your time and look for a scorching deal you might fall on one eventually. not saying the maverick is any bad,just underlining that sometimes you can get more for less.the SX3 is to me the best gauge for the price.i know it's a semi,but semis are quite reliable these days. the SX3 is 100% versatile,great trap gun,probably a little heavy for hunting while walking the bush (i don't find it overly heavy), barrel is interchangeable if ever you want to go deer hunting (wich i do). my point with this long post being that the use market is filled with great deals,and .......the SX3 is a great semi gauge LOL!!

    Kennymo was spot on I think. Maverick 88 was my first brand new shotgun bought in 1990 when I worked at Can Tire part time and got my 15% staff discount. I still have this shotgun and use it for geese and ducks, an excellent if primitive gun. There are a lot of options out there now and I recommend you ‘shoulder’ a few to see what is comfortable and what fits because some may fit you better than others.

    A Maverick 88 is an exact copy of the Mossberg M500. Barrels and aftermarket stuff, of which there isn't a lot, will fit.
    1. Depends on what you're doing. An 18.5" M88 isn't a 'duck gun' though. (They're really good upland bird and rabbit guns though.) Short barrels are great for those critters.) You need a 26" + barrel for ducks and geese, like Gunexpert007 says. You can buy one with changeable chokes that will give you a very versatile shotgun.
    There is no 'minimum' quantity of ammo. That's more about your budget than anything else. You'll have to pattern whatever you do buy too. That's basically finding out where the thing shoots and how dense the pattern is with different shot. Easier to do than describe.
    2. You should have been taught this on your PAL course. A trigger lock is the absolute minimum. Then put it in the back of a closet. Doesn't hurt to put a pad lock on the closet door as well. Storing in a case is not a good idea even in a silica cloth. Cases tend to attract moisture.
    "...not that easy for a new shooter..." Isn't easy for anybody given all the government persecution.

    Meanwhile,

    Does anyone have experience with Stack-On Stand-Up Home Defense Safe

    It is being sold at Cabela's for $230. Here's the link to the website and a picture below for reference.

    Just considering the cost and the fact that is a Stack-On I am interested. However, there are lot of critical reviews for this on the internet (Amazon, Cabelas etc).
    Can someone please shed some light on this.

    Thanks

    I was about to suggest to get the combo, but I see you figured that out.
    My first shotgun was a maverick with a short barrel.
    A couple years ago I bought a 28" barrel for it as well, so I could actually use it for practical things. Hindsight being 2020, buying the combo together at the start would have saved some money.

    Remember that no gun safe holds as many guns as the marketing department promises.... 8 gun = 6 at best, 14 gun = about 10, etc....
