Well paychecks came in today and I made more than I expected. I went down to turners and bought my very own Mossberg 930 spx... I am very excited to finally own a shotgun of my own now I don't have to keep borrowing my friends. This is also my first post to calguns and hopefully one of many more... I am going to keep reading the forums about break-in procedures as well as shotgun care due to me having very little experience with shotguns. But if anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated !

Congratulations man! Shotguns are versatile liittle tools/toys. Try not to get caught up in custom shells, because you will never get out. :)

welcome! i have a 930spx as well and i love it! i noticed that it runs better between cleaning wen u dont oil the piston that much just a little so will go along way. and the way i broke mine in was 15 3 inch slugs and 10 buck shot and 50 bird shot.... before i even cleaned it.... shoots fine, and at first i though it wasnt going to function cuz of all l the gunk mossberg puts in the action but i think the slugs might have cleaned it out...once ur done clean it all out and start dumpin mags man!

Also bought one recently.
Be sure to go over to Mossberg owners forum and read up on the 930 section they have there. Lots of good info.

Welcome to Calguns! The Mossberg 930SPX is a great shotgun. My only recommendation would be to disassemble and clean before firing. Some say that the 930 will not function with inexpensive bird shot. That has not been my experience. Quite the contrary actually. The 930SPX that I shot (my buddies) functioned flawlessly with all types of shotgun rounds including the cheapo federal blue box stuff from Walmart. The action functions like lightning and the gun has only moderate recoil with most loads (except mags and slugs). All in all an awesome gun. Congrats on your purchase!:D
