Hey guys,

 

I have been seeing some really good prices for both the Shockwave and Tac-14 recently.   Neither really held much interest for me when they first were released, but it's just a matter of time before the gun grabbers start to view these as "assault weapons".   They also seem to be reliable and accurate.   I don't know anyone that owns either of these guns, but I would love to hear some owner feedback.   Which is the better of these two options and should I get it in 12 or 20 gauge.  Thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

I believe a friend of mine has the 20 gauge mossberg. He said he likes it. I’ve toyed with the idea of picking one up, but I feel like for such a small length weapon, would a 12 gauge be too much recoil? I really like the idea of a 20 gauge. I’d like to try hmmm friends out whenever I see him next.

I’ve sold them. The gun is gimmicky. Use it for backpacking or traveling in places you can’t have a pistol. Recoil alone would make me choose 20. Just like I only suggest 22lr and 22wmr for the Henry mares leg and Ross ranch hand

Thanks for the tip.  I have watched a ton of YouTube videos where the vloggers claim the 12gauge is a lot easier to handle then you might expect.  I would probably use it as an "under the bed' gun in case I don't have time to get my AR out of the safe.

Recoil shouldn't be so much of an issue. It's not a range gun, it's for self defense. 00buck recoil is not bad in the Tac 14.

I like the Tac14 with the wood furniture looks old school.

Why don’t you just keep the AR under the bed?

I’ve owned both. Definitely go with 20 gage. Less recoil. These guns are not so easy to aim but with practice you can hit a target from 30 feet. The Tac 14 has smoother action and the magpul for re-loading. . Mossberg gives you an extra round and the tang safety. Both triggers excellent. I prefer the Mossberg but would buy whichever becomes available first.

The Mossberg all the way. because.

 

MINI SHELLS with the adapter. Very low recoil, get the job done, holds more rounds.

The new Federal Mini shells are very good. Excellent performance!
