Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore has them preorder $389.00

Anybody here have one yet?
I've been thinking about getting one but learned recently that Remington is coming out with one too built on 870. I'd prefer 870 action so I'll get that instead.

Saw 4 dealers with Shockwaves at the Orlando show today, starting at $375 (new). It seems OK, supposedly built on the 590 frame although the trigger guard looks like plastic. Only position I could see myself shooting it would be from the hip (with a laser), or very carefully in front at arms length (no slugs).

I'd lean the 870 way myself, just seems to be a better looking firearm to me while the performance of the two are likely very similar.

I have a mossberg 500 with a original cop stop grip w/wire shoulder stock that is 28 inches folded. I don't see where 2 " would be worth it plus the hassle of people thing it was a sawed off shotgun

My Shockwave is kit built, which means I paid way too much
But it is probably my most favoritest gun I have right now, just for the pure coolness factor if nothing else.

However
last night it was put to the test.

I live across the street from the busiest IHOP in Orlando and after the clubs close there is always a crowd and usually a fight.
Last night's fight involved gunplay and the fight started to spill out into the street and towards my house.

One of them was coming towards my house with a gun in their hand, I think they were looking to ditch it
As they got close to my yard I racked the slide and that sound that others argue is the universal dissuader and that I have always argued against proved true.
they changed course and headed towards my neighbor's spanish bayonet patch.

I never interfere with mutual combat, but if it had turned into another Pulse situation I would have wanted to do something.

the problem is that with this alley sweeper it is almost impossible to actually aim the thing at that distance at a single target in a crowd.
I could see the shooter but I could not realistically engage him if I had needed to in that situation.

If I had had the 1911 I normally use as my porch gun, or a properly sighted AR, ,maybe.

So in short as a kitschy range toy or a HD gun for someone that lives alone and would never have to shoot in close proximity to an innocent party it would be a good choice.
But it proved woefully inadequate for last night's festivities
Luckily it was just a semi intense dry run

"plus the hassle of people thinking it was a sawed off shotgun."
That would be the major concern.
Most people wouldn't know the difference between this and one requiring federal papers.
Including the police, and that could really end badly.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Those women are just pointing it in the general direction, holding onto it, and pulling the trigger.

Pretty cool for noise makers and indiscriminate crowd control, but certainly not effectively aimed fire

In case some dummy says something about the legality, I keep a copy of the ATF Shockwave letter with with my NFA papers which I always have when shooting.

Yep as you stated above it's pretty impossible to try to aim thing for any kind of distance is over about 20 ft but for General room clearing and I do mean clearing as in it would probably take out half the mother fukkers in the room.....lol

Working daily in Orlando on the West side I have been considering carrying a little heavier. I went the Remington Tac 14 route. It fits right up under my car seat. I know it's a breaching gun really but,,,,,should someone try to breach my car door they are in for one rude awakening. Just seems like a viable option along with my EDC.

Does going from an 18" to 14" increase the devastation THAT much?
Late mergers should be shot in the face, then set on fire and hung from an overpass. /:f

Probably not....just joking around... I remember seeing something on the Internet one time where a guy took a single shot New England partner and cut it from 28in all the way down to almost nothing one inch at a time, then measuring the spread and velocities and stuff with a chronograph....I think Scott ended up hydrodipping the guys gun when finished

I actually duckbilled a sawed off, 8 inch New England Partner a long time ago, it would hit 4 targets across at the indoor range at 50 feet [smilie=011.gif]
