I have kind of a general question, pretty sure I already know the answer. Was thinking about maybe getting a 12 ga. for home and bear protection, hopefully not both at the same time (lame joke). I really like either the Remington 870, or the Mossberg 590A1, but right now I'm leaning towards the Mossberg for no particular reason. I think it's be pretty sweet to have one all dressed up tactical style, you know what I mean. I see that Mossberg has a line of law enforcement models, with the 14 inch barrel, which makes them Class III because of the short length vs. the standard 18.5 inch. I know that there are no specific state restriction applying towards this, but what about federal regulations. I think I read there is a tax? And how hard would it be to obtain one of these, is it something I could order through a gun dealer with a FFL? Anyone got any thoughts or opinions on this? How about my gun choice?
