    Mossberg Maverick at Academy - $179.99

    Academy marked their Mossberg Maverick bolt-action rifles down from 249.99 to 179.99. Don't know what calibers they come in, but who cares. They are $179.99!!

    I'm swinging by in just a bit, I'll take a look and see what calibers they have. Mixed reviews online, but mostly positive. And for $179 who cares!

    Also, Monarch steel 9mm is on sale for $7.99.

    The Maverick is a hell of a lot of shotgun for that little bit of money. The only difference between it and it's pricier brother, the 500, is the location of the safety. If you plan to go tactical home defense with it, the Maverick is a far better platform than the 500, purely because of the safety, especially when using a pistol grip.

    I have 2 with Super Skeet chokes and they work great when we pull out the trap and clays.

    I'd jump on the AA deal, buy by the case, with 4 cases you get a $100 mail in rebate. I already have 1000 AA's in the garage, and I don't go through them all that fast, so I'm gonna pass this time.

    Stay away from the $4.99 Monarch .223. It's terrible, just fills up the AR bolt with trash from the casings. I was having to clean mine every 4 mags, and I have a piston AR

    Was that all from the same batch? I put a couple hundreds rounds of it through mine with no issues.

    At Academy...the Mavericks are available in .30-06 and I believe .243 fullsize and .223 and .270 in a youth version. Seem decent, if they had a .308 I'd be bringing one home.

    It's not the Maverick shotgun, its a Maverick Bolt action Rifle
