I have a Mossberg 500 shotgun.
I wanted to know if it was drop-safe.
I turn to Mossberg’s website; I see nothing there addressing the matter.
I turn to Google. A mixed bag of results where the only the conclusion is: no one knows but everyone thinks they do. It also makes you realize that no one took the time and effort to go to the horse’s mouth and find out. Well, I found one guy that did, but he sent an email, didn’t word it right, and due to that wording he didn’t really get the question answered.
Time to pick up the phone.
I sat on hold for a while. A long while. Man… their hold music is… terrible. 🙂
But once I got someone on the phone, I asked if their shotguns are drop safe. Yes they are. All of them, across their entire line. I asked “so I have one in the pipe and drop it on the concrete from 3-4′ up and it’ll be fine? won’t fire?” “Yes, sir”.
So there you go. At least today, according to the rep that I spoke with on the phone, all Mossberg shotguns are drop safe.
