Yes I know handguns are a better choice, but let's talk home defense shotguns.

My daughter has a mossberg pump. I taught her how to shot at a young age. I do want her to get a pistol to carry around but she isn't old enough yet. According to the Law that is.

The shotgun that will hold the most rounds regardless of gauge is your best bet. Be sure it is automatic. Pumps are only cool in the movies.

This is a Benelli M-2 Tactical. We started carrying these in the Navy because they have the pistol grip, are short and easy to handle in close quarters on a ship. Two words- bad ass.

I found a nice moss burg 12 gauge at a gunshow. It was the home defense version for $250.

It basically hold 7 + 1 shells, then an extra 5 on the storage sleeve.

It has an interchangeable pistol grip and standard stock.

I keep the stock on it, so my wife (who is a 110 lb blonde) can handle the 12 gauge turkey load.

The first 5 shells, are hardcore turkey buckshot. Then the next few shells are small game shots. I fear shooting through the walls with my kids in the other rooms.

I also bought a LED light to go on the end of it, and a 5x extra shell sleeve holder to go on the stock. It may be overkill, but I guess you must be ready for zombies or New Orleans Looters at all times!

I would post a pic of it, but I am on my iPad, and I cannot post pics from an iPad.

I agree/disagree, the pump noise is 90% of its value....but yes, having an automatic shotgun > a pump.

I would have one chambered so no pump action to scare anyone. But I do see your point. It could be unloaded and that classic pump sound would most likely scare someone off without having to kill someone.

I have a Remington auto 20 gauge in the closet. 5 round apacity. Woman likes the 20 gauge so she woul't be scared to use it.

20 gauge 6 shot will fug a mother up pretty good.

I have my eye set on one of these beauties. Saiga 12. You can find them at gun shows in VA for about $700 - $1,000.

The price is so low because they were all involved in liquor store robberies.
