so i went to my local Sporting goods store to look at the mossberg 500 combo in synthetic, to my suprise it had no chokes, and wasn't threaded!!!

Are all Mossberg 500s chokes-less?

I have that model that I bought at Big 5, a sporting goods store in the Western US. It comes with the 28 inch barrel, and the 18.5 inch 'home-defense' barrel, right?
You are correct that those are not threaded and do not come with chokes. However, I believe that you can buy a Moss. 500 model that does come with the threaded barrel and possibly a few chokes. It wouldn't be the 'combo' though. You can also buy aftermarket barrels with the different chokes. I hope this helps.

It's a pretty good gun, by the way. I use it to blast clays, birds, and the ocassional squirrel or rabbit. But you might spend another $80-100 and get something even better.

For example, I bought my 500 combo at that store for like 250 out the door, including background check, on sale. I was in there a while ago, checking out the mil-surps they have and this guy had a much nicer one that was only 340 or something, plus it came with a few chokes. I wish now I had spent a little more.

Sometimes they feel like a choke, sometimes they don't.
Some Mossbergs got chokes, some don't.

I have a beloved girlfriend who likes guns on a beginner level, and can appreciate a quality C&R (Mauser.) This is a result of me, she was wonderful even before she got into guns.

Other girls like UV's sister merely get a thumb's up. Besides, I'm 23.
