Best Home Defense Shotgun...

Instead of the dog, you can learn to bark like a dog. When you do your fake bark, don't force air out of your lungs. Actually, suck air in as you're "barking." It sounds like a large, menacing dog when done right.

I can't bite like one though. Now I'm sitting here barking and poo.

IMO this is the finest close range defense shotgun ever produced Ithaca model 37 trench gun - bayonet optional

Id take a Stevens 620 in a pinch

I've liked the Ithaca for a long time as well, but I'm curious about one thing that maybe a gun expert can explain to me: is there a disadvantage to the spent shell casing being ejected out of the same breech where you load shells? Seems like that would cause some kind of functional issues.

Bottom ejection means no shell casings distracting your shooting - the older 37 s you just hold down on the trigger and pump away - soon as the next shell rams into the chamber it fires - slam firing

OK, so from what I have been reading it looks like the experts say for home protection you need to go with a short barrel for maneuverability. Some say the pistol grip is best as it makes it more difficult to be wrestled away.

I guess thats the main concern with the shotty is that its harder to move around and can more easily be wrestled out of your hands.

Yeah, but be sure to come running to us when you need bailed out of an invasion.

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

An empty gun is a useless gun! I keep my guns loaded at all times. If you get into a situation where the use of lethal force is your only choice, you may not have time to chamber a round. Pump shotguns can be short stroked when loading, this can cause a jam that is not easily cleared while under duress.

Dont get a pistol grip only. You are severly limiting yourself. Go standard 18" barrel with an extended tube and a full stock. If u cant easily manuver that you have no business handling a firearm.
