Looks like it has a couple of nice HD features

that are often added from the aftermarket to other models of Mossberg. Many people change out the 5xx safety for something more substantial and which you can tell by feel whether it is engaged. Likewise, if there is a way other than just using the pump to jack them out, I haven't found it to empty my 500, so an easy way to unload it might be desireable to some. Mine stays loaded all the time, but I don't have any kids in the house and my wife is pretty gun-friendly. Having a piccatiny rail is a good thing because it saves you the gunsmithing to add one to the barrel or having to replace the foregrip. I have a foregrip with rails and they're a PITA, but necessary for a light. The changeable shape stock is interesting, but I like the Knoxx recoil absorbing stock for my primary HD weapon because my wife isn't afraid of the recoil with that stock. Wish they made a Knoxx for my Saiga 12; with 3" shells, that thing is simply brutal!

when i first saw "mossberg home security", i thiought you meant the model
(85320), which is the one i actually own. i don't have the SPX (85371), but i almost purchased it, and decided on the more simple home security model.

basically, they are the same gun, so i'll tell you i have had great experiences with mine so far. it even shoots wal mart target cheapo ammo with no malfunctions to this point. i think in the end, i went with the version without the bells and whistles because i'm not much into tactical features (and it was cheaper ). but the spx does have the higher capacity.

but i really disliked the cheap plastic stock on mine, so i have ordered a new walnut one from mossberg. like i said, its old school for me vs tacticool, but that is just my preference. i say look at the simple home security model also, its also a good option. but the 930 is a great shotgun imo, you will like it.

for the Moss 500
With the safety on and muzzle pointed in safe direction(i.e heavy bookcase, open field) level with the ground looking down into the loading port on the right side there is a spring lever the holds the shells in the magazine tube depress this lever into the side of the receiver and it will release the shell back into the loading port lift out the shell and repeat till magazine is empty once you figure out where everything is it's real easy right side up then the shells just fall into your hand

I have the 930 SPX model 85360 and it is a lot of fun to shoot. It comes with a mag extension and some very nice sights. If you can find that one for slightly more I would go with that. The action is the same on them but the extension and sights are easily worth $100 difference.

Overall I'm pleased with my 930SPX. A $600 semiautomatic shotgun was a good deal to me. Especially when I was considering other price points.

It's no beauty queen. It's a workhorse. The finish is matte and it can get scratched easily. However, it's a tool not a collectible stamp. I only care that it delivers its cargo to my intended target.

I chose regular stock over a pistol grip. Never used the pistol grip on a shotgun. My Navy quals were with a conventional pump shotgun.

Now that I have taken mine out a few times and I've gotten comfortable with mine, I've been very pleased. It shoots any type of ammo I've put into it: 1oz slug, 00, 7/8/4 shot. I like the sights - very high visibility.

The design is comfortable to shoot 00 buck rather well. The butt stock has a flexible rubber recoil damper. I've done rapid fire and slow fire with this. not a hiccup.

I like the trigger action. I like the placement of the safety. The mag release button is a perfect size. All I added to it was a sling.

I have two other shotguns coming next week from a trade, so I will have some guns to compare to it, soon:
Saiga 12 Tactical with quad rail, collapsible stock, 20/12/2x10 round mags
FN 12 gauge pump tactical: 8 shot
