Welcome everyone to the 167th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only has a Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you, the readers, decided the custom PCC was fudd crap.
At this time the original auction remains up with this Glock mag PCC still up for grabs. We here can only hope it finds its way to a new home in the very near future.
In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at a custom Mossberg 590 chambered in 12 Gauge. As is tradition, this American flag-themed gat is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $699 Starting Bid or $1,250 Buy It Now.
HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP?
All American or Can You Not?
Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:
“It’s so trailer trash… I want it so badly” -Matt E.
“Somewhere down in the bayou of Florida, Hulk Hogan is ripping a T-shirt in half screaming: “Yeah, brother!”” – Adam S.
“You know who thinks this isn’t a hot gat? Communists. You aren’t a communist, are you?” – James Reeves
Selling this all-American gat is GunBroker seller tgunshop, located in Mercersburg, PA. Let’s see what they had to say about this red white and blue gat.

I’ve tried to describe my rifle honestly and accurately, and hopefully the pictures, will do the rest.
Honestly, I challenge you to think of a more American gun than the Mossberg Shockwave. Sure, there have been others that have been iconic, but like it or not, this is what pure Americana looks like. It doesn’t need any tax stamps, can be ironically or unironically racked for effect and comes in the most purely useless and beautiful camo ever created.
I’ll admit I was a huge fan or Carnik Con, and the episode on “Meriflage” is a standout gem in their production. I’ll never be sure if that’s what sparked guns like this, but I certainly hope so. The Mossberg 590 Shockwave was never going to be the most comfortable or fun gun to shoot, but it does work. For a gun as compact as it is, sometimes that’s all you really need. You’re certainly not going to take this hunting, so why not have some fun with it.
So what is a gun like this worth in today’s market? Certainly, there’s a bit of an upcharge for the Cerakote work, but is it worth it with a starting bid of $699 or would you prefer to buy something else entirely? Of course, I leave that up to you, the readers, to decide.
