My intentions were to start my hammer fired 9MM comparison this week but, due to family commitments and the holiday, I ran out of time. I am posting a review on the Mossberg 590 Shockwave and, in my opinion, this is not a gun for everyone. It really is a kind of foolish purchase, but it is fun to shoot. If you have an extra $450.00 and you do not mind waiting a couple of months, this Mossberg is definitely a conversation piece and has devastating results at close range. I posted a target that I shot four rounds of 00Buck with 9 pellets at 15 feet and a video of the Shockwave. I also posted an excellent informative video on handgun shooting techniques by Travis Tomasie.
