Best Home Defense Shotgun...

Recommended Posts

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.

Been thinking of getting a shotgun for added protection.

I still like by 38 with hollowpoint bullets. Makes a hole about the size of your pinky going in.....and a hole about the size of a basketball going out.

I'm also considering Bear Mace....25 ft cloud

Be real careful with that stuff. Seriously it will blind you.
