AndyJ's thread on his Ithaca rebuild sent me out to the Ithaca website, to see the present offerings from their new location in Upper Sandusky, Ohio.. (a funny name, I have been through there many times and there is not all that much "upper" about it except its location on the river...)
I have a Mossberg 500 12 gauge that was my workhorse for years. Now it mostly sits, but I have occasionally thought about picking up a 20 gauge pump for squirrels and bunnies.
To those who have shot both -- how would you compare the Mossberg 500 with the Ithaca? I like the idea of the classic John Browning design heritage, but I have never handled one.
