Mossberg 500 Roadblocker: The most badass pump action shotgun ever

If this does not keep hippies awake at night and zombies at bay I do not know what will. The Mossberg 500 Road Blocker a real badass. Pistol grip, heat shield and BFMB (Big “Fraking” Muzzle Brake”).

The two baffle muzzle brake looks like it was ripped off a .50 BMG anti-material rifle.

For comparison: M107 / Barrett M82 .50 BMG anti-material rifle

The Road Blocker is chambered in 12 gauge, has a 18.5″ barrel and a 6 round magazine.

It was previously sold as a TALO exclusive but this year it is now a standard production shotgun. I am not sure what the MSRP will be but if I had to guess I would say $400.

There should be some good reverse thrust from the muzzle brake. If used correctly you should be able to follow up the blast of buckshot with shotgun-in-the-guts. Follow the instructions in my handy guide:

Just joking. Don’t get to excited!

    I recently purchased a Road Blocker... This gun is perfect for security... If the intruders dont run just by the sight of the gun... The shot will put them back out the door... The heat shield is a wonderful add on... The Muzzle Brake comes in handy for quick hands and "rapid" fire... If you know what your doing... Most definitely one of Mossberg's finest!!
