Palmetto State Armory has the Mossberg 590 Shockwave 12 gauge "firearm" on sale for $299.99 + S&H [palmettostatearmory.com]. Despite only having a 14" barrel it is not a NFA controlled item and requires no tax stamp as it does not meet the legal definition of a SBS under the NFA. It's 50 state legal from a federal perspective. However, PSA won't sell it to residents of OH, and I've read it's not legal in TX. You should check for your own state and local laws before buying.

The UPC is: 015813506595 If you want to look it up at gun.deals The prior lowest price I've seen for this is $329.99 shipped from Brownells.

Here's the ATF letter for it [mossberg.com].
Mossberg brochure with instructions on how to fill out the 4473 for it [mossberg.com].

Edit: It is legal in TX as of September 1, 2017.

By the way, you can add the OPSol Mini-Clip™ [opsolmini-clip.com] to it and use 1.75" 12 gauge minishells from Aguila [aguilaammo.com] in it for less recoil and more shells in the magazine.

Well, it is the lowest price to date after shipping for it. I spoon fed you the UPC and how to compare the price in the OP.

What is your definition of a "slickdeal"?

I'm a gun enthusiast and all; I own many firearms, but I have to say this is the most disgusting piece to come along in a long, long time... It's basically made to enter a room and turn human beings into small pieces of flesh...

We found the fudd in the group... Are guns only for hunting? You could use your argument about a lot of guns, like most handguns. The Shockwave & TAC-14 are not really much different than a 18" shotgun. Are you okay with them?

PSA's site was lagging badly yesterday but I've got one coming. didn't post as I was too busy and SD seems to discourage gun posts.

I've been wanting one of these but told myself only when they drop below $300. With shipping it comes to $317 for me. Great for home defense or a car gun. I plan to fit the mini clip and use the Aguila mini shells with it. Lessens the recoil and the range which is perfect for my designated use.

Word to the wise to use this gun safely.
1. Keep this puppy away from your face. Push it as far forward as you can as to spare dental expenses.
2. Keep your hand inside that sling at all times when firing as not to lose parts of that hand.

BTW, both links in the OP go to the ATF letter. None show how to fill in form 4473. I believe (at least here in Florida) the crucial part is to list it as a firearm and not as a handgun, shotgun or rifle. from my research this appears legal to own in Florida and is sold by LGS.

A great vid [youtube.com] with pointers for use. I'd suggest 909Hemi look at the pattern shown at the various distances as that shows something quite different than 'small pieces of flesh'.

For a home defense piece, that's exactly what I want. Wouldn't you?

Oops... Fixed.

From the 2nd page in the fixed link It's an Other Firearm for question 16 and a Pistol Grip Firearm for question 27.

Adding a laser and shooting it from below your face like mid-chest or from the hip is probably the best course of action.

Maybe dumb question. But does this ship right to home or does it require to be shipped to dealer first?

It has to ship to to a FFL. It can't ship to your house unless you're a FFL. You will go to the FFL to get it. You will only be given it to walk out with after passing the NICS background check and completing the 4473 along with FFL.

Thanks for fixing the link. I printed out both documents and intend to keep the BATF letter with the Shockwave at all times to avoid any potential issues with LEO's. That 2nd link with the values for questions 16 and 27 is also quite important as you can potentially be in hot water if you fill those in any other way on form 4473. Also a good item is the fact that they warn you not to use this for CCW. :-) Although in the Florida climate that would be difficult anyway.

That youtube vid I linked shows a good way on how to hold this gun when firing but a laser is an idea. However I can't see a space I could mount one as there's not enough barrel in front to mount one of those 8 shaped clamps to hold the laser.

Did you grab one of these as well?

Put a Magpul forend on it then you use a small M-Lok to rail piece for mounting the laser on a side. Note the Magpul forend needs modding to fit or this: https://www.gggaz.com/magpul-fore...kwave.html

Or, add a Weaver 48333 rail [gun.deals] or a Monstrum Tactical rail [monstrumtactical.com] on the top of the receiver and fasten a laser to that. The Shockwave's receiver is already drilled and tapped.

Here's a post showing pictures of a CMR-206 on a top rail [ar15.com]. There's lot of good ideas in that thread.

Thanks for that link! There is a 8 shape mount that fits the front of the Shockwave judging by one of the pictures. And I just found the perfect use for my <$20 after MIR Bushnell TRS-25. Applause
