Mossberg JIC II

The original Mossberg JIC (Just In Case) cruiser shotgun comes with an airtight resealable PVC tube. The new JIC II, which will be sold alongside the original, comes in a soft case with shoulder strap. The 18.5″ Mossberg 500 shotgun is stored with the barrel and pistol grip removed. A tool is included in the pack to break it down and reassemble it.

This is not designed to be a when-things-go-bump-in-the-night gun, but rather a bug out bag. My recollection may be wrong, but I believe the pack has been designed to be compatible with Mossberg’s upcoming modular ASAP survival system.

    Waist of money. Get the Mod 500 combo. 1 gun that you can setup as a field gun or a JIC.

    Perhaps critics are overlooking the JIC part of this gun. It's not a sporting
    weapon, it's a self-defense, home invasion weapon. JIC, of course, means Just In Case. I own one and I also own 17 other 12 guage shotguns--Browing, Berreta, Bernilli, Remington, The recoil on the JIC is quite managable without a stock. I've shot it from several positions: hip, boxer, and standard position for a gun with a stock -- just don't put it next to your cheek. I love it! It's leaning against the wall beside my bed along with the Glock 10mm compensated on my night table, and my pit bull "eggs" at the foot of my bed. I sleep soundly.
