A decent 12 ga. makes for one of the best home defense weapons one could have. And you can get a pretty good one for not a lot of money.

Oh, I am not disagreeing with you. A 12 gauge is a powerful weapon. But I already have a massive storage problem. And if it came down to it, I think looking down the barrel of my SKS with the Tapco Stock, Red Dot Scope, and 20 round magazine hanging out of it would stop someone in their tracks.

Yes but it has been psychologically proven that the sound of a round entering the chamber of the 12 gauge shotgun is one of the scariest noises in the world. Next to being on the ground and hearing a B-52 coming at ya

Light emitting Diode (LED) flashlights have a focus light pattern and therefore tend to not illuminate what is behind the light. way better than a standard bulb

Yeah, but I would think that a bad guy could just shoot at the light and find his target pretty easily.......?

You can hear that sound from a distance, once heard most intelligent folks, even dumb criminals don't stick around to find out who is coming. I had someone try to get in my window one night when i was a kid, i told dad, he jacked a round in the riot gun and the guy was hauling ass thru the front yard b4 pops got out the front door. Guy crapped his shorts in the yard when the naked guy come running out and illuminated him with the flashlight attached to said shotgun

the option to avoid that is to hold the light out to the side, if they light is shot you may still survive

Yeah, maybe. Tough to hold a light mounted on a firearm to the side....especially a shotgun.
