Absolutely! In fact I would, and do own three. No frills, get the job done shotgun. There are several packages you can buy, ie: cantilever rifled barrell/ 28" vent rib barrell with choke tubes, etc. Killed my first deer with one that my dad bought for me. It had a peep sight drilled and tapped into the receiver, and just a bead on the end of the barrell. That thing will still throw a foster type slug into a pie plate at 80 yards. My buddy Harvey and I were duck hunting once. Harvey's atv is an old tractor. He leaned his 500 against the tractor tire, and when we went to leave to head down to the river, he forgot about the gun and backed the tractor right over it. He picked it up, hosed the mud off of it, and killed three ducks with it that morning. I'm sure if the ground was frozen it would have been a different story, but luckily it wasn't .

The 500 is the raddiest, plainest, raddlingest, cheapest, best shootin', toughest, easiest to use and clean shotgun you can buy. That is why I shoot one and will never get rid of it. Get a 500 you won't be disappointed

I have one with a rifled cantilever deer barrel and a Nikon Pro Staff scope. I've killed more deer with it than my 1187 and 870 combined. And I like my Remingtons too.

I agree with Ruger (and everyone else). Not a pretty, high tech gun, just works-well and always. Among the all time great gun values. I've never had or shot a shotgun that was more consistent, durable or reliable than my Dad's 500.
