Mossberg 940

In 2018, the pump gun juggernaut decided to take another swing at the semi auto shotgun market when it set out to build an upgraded gun that would offer real advantages over the competition yet remain reasonably priced and true to Mossberg’s blue-collar brand. For this they hired arguably the world’s greatest all-around shooter in history, Jerry Miculek, and who better to consult? Since 2012 he’d used a 930–albeit heavily modified–to win multiple 3-Gun championships. In doing so, he knew two things: First, the 930 would provide a solid platform on which to build an outstanding new gun. Secondly, with his experience in a realm where one jam means losing valuable seconds and a winner’s check, Miculek knew just what modifications were needed. What spawned was Mossberg’s totally renovated Model 940.

In 2021 Mossberg invited JJ on a hunt with the 940 Pro Field for a Gould’s turkey–the remaining turkey JJ needed for his World Slam. Watch the video for a truncated version of the hunt and a full review of the gun.

At an early age Jeff was kicked in the face by an exposed hammer shotgun, stunting his growth but also sparking a passion for guns, hunting and the outdoors. Since the crack of that old gun, he's traveled the world, hunting, shooting and writing for national outdoor magazines. His Youtube page adds a bit of practicality to tacticality, dispels hunting and shooting myths, gives fairly honest reviews of guns and gear because he's not beholden to anyone, and offers real-world based tips--that might well be wrong. Rest assured, Jeff is no Navy SEAL, although he stayed at a Holiday Inn once in San Diego.
