Mossberg Releases 20 Gauge Shockwave
Kevin Felts 10.20.17
Have you ever thought the 20 gauge does not get enough love? When someone does a video or article about a shotgun, the vast majority of the time it will be about the 12 gauge.
While the 12 gauge is an excellent all-around firearm, the recoil can be a little harsh. Some people are probably thinking, “Kevin is just a sissy.” Nope. I have a couple of 12 gauge shotguns and have been using one since I was around 14 years old. But even after 35 years of using the 12 gauge, the 20 gauge has a special place in my heart, just like the 410.
For those of us who would rather use a 20 gauge over a 12 gauge for small stuff, such as snake charming, Mossberg is releasing a http://bit.ly/2y2lw0MShockwave chambered in 20 gauge.

It seems everything is 12 gauge this, 12 gauge that. So, it is nice to see a gun company showing the 20 gauge some love.
For those who do not know what the Shockwave is, hickok45 made a video about it.
