Just bought a 3 1/2" 12GA Mossburg with the 22" barrel. It came with a 28" waterfowl barrel and a truglo scope. Camo and light. I can't tell you for sure why I wanted another gun, my 3" 12GA was doing just fine. I am hunting for the most part with a bow again this year so why? LOL. Because I could afford it I guess and why not? Anyway, I was reading where the shorter barrels don't give away much in accuracy and the shorter barrel I know will help in tight spaces with brush and stuff.
