Going to a gun show soon so we shall see.. 

oneyedman (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

I just bought a new barrel and tube for my Mossburg 500...

It increases the capacity from 5+1 to 8+1... Got it on monday and installed.

2 sad discoveries with the new rig.

1) The new 20" barrel has hard sights on it (the old 18" only had a brass bead) and I cannot reattach my awesome, mean looking heat shield.

2) Although advertised as an 8 shot capacity tube, it seems I can only fit seven 2 1/2 in shells....

Still, at just over $100, it was a fine addition to the home defense weapon and considering I have a 6 shell side saddle and a 5 shot stock saddle, it gives me 19 shells ON the weapon without having to fumble around in my pockets..... This is me happy :-) (but WAY better looking).

Did you take the wooden rod out of the tube??

How to remove the limiting plug from the Mossberg 500



1. Make sure your weapon is clear and unloaded.
2. Check twice
3. Unscrew the barrel retainer on the end of the magazine.
4. Remove said barrel.
5. Point firearm down and shake vigorously.
6. The wooden dowel should start to come out of the threaded hole that the barrel retainer screws into.

Mossberg's plug is nothing more than a wooden dowel with a rubber o-ring on each end.

Limiter on a Tactical upgrade??

Well I suppose there are stranger thing under heaven (like Kyobungee)....

Thanks I will check that.... 

LiveFreeOrDie (Admin) --- 7 years ago -

I did not get the tactical, but I would not be surprised if it still had the plug.

LFOD.... Do you have large barrels for water collection??

I was thinking of buying a few of those big blue ones...

We have 2 for collection and using one for a compost tumbler.

We canned 10 lbs of hamburger 

rightwingmom (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

JG....excellent! Are you using a pressure canner? I have the 23 quart Presto and LOVE it. Now if we can get our fruit trees and veggies to produce more I can can home grown rather than store bought!

John thanks for joining us, hopefully we can grow and help each other on the things we have learned. 

John Gault --- 7 years ago -

Yes we used a pressure canner, browned the hamburger first, drained the grease, topped off the jars with hot water and processed for 75 minutes at 10psi. Didn't use any seasoning as we will add that in the final dishes. Pint jars hold ~1 lb.

I canned a couple of Jennie-O turkeys last year when they were .29 cents/lb. Oven roasted them, de-boned, cut up the meat, then canned them. If I recall, I got approx. 6 quarts per bird. 

oneyedman (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

How long does meat last like that? 

rightwingmom (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

2 - 3 years

I tried making Hamburger Rocks (dehydrating hamburger) but it freaked DH out.
Shhh....I may start up again when the weather cools. ;)

6 1 oz silver dollars .9999 fine

6 1 oz silver dollars .9999 fine

Just 6?.... I would suggest quite a bit more... but 6 is a good start

6 is excellent, especially at these prices! Many have the strong suspicion that we could see silver break $100/oz. (or more) in an economic collapse. Wise investment!

Have you considered "junk" silver? The pre-1964 Roosevelt or Mercury dimes are popular.

Indeed, the dimes are good as the larger coins will need to be broken down.
I have extensive silver holdings.My Gold holdings are a bit less extensive, but it should get me by for a while if the ATM machines go down.

Fall garden seeds in the dirt: spinach, 2 types of lettuce, okra, & pole green beans.

The basil, sage, and bell peppers MAY have survived August and this drought!
Thanks to DH's TLC...so did the tomatoes. They're blooming again!
