I don't think he was referring to a "cruiser" but a pistol grip to help absorb some recoil!

Put a 2" aiming dot on a clean piece of cardboard. The big hole is the wad. You will be surprised how little they spread at that distance. Do not believe Hollywood hype. You can and will miss if your are sloppy. There are a lot of opinions on slugs but we carried Brenneke Slugs for bear protection in Alaska. The hollow base slugs would not do the job on a bear. Probably good on deer and people though. The noise of a shotgun in a confined area is devastating. Be ready for it.
I totally agree with the 0000 buck its a devastating load inside its range and home defense surely qualifies!

+1 on the 4 buckshot.
More than adequate stopping power for home defense and over penetration will be reduced.
A slug can go through several walls which will endanger persons in adlacent rooms and even nearby apartments or house
If in a near by apartment/ home, there is only 1 sheet of wallboard, one sheet of 1/2 inch plywood some insulation and siding before exit.
A 12 ga slug has awesome penetration and will completely through both sides of an automobile which is more than most handguns and some rifles.
At 15-30 feet almost any load will do but 2 1/2 inch #4 buckshot with 27pellets of 20 caliber will drop any intruder. A hit in the leg, or arm will essentially sever the limb. As stated earlier, you still have to aim as the pattern will be probably only 4-6 inches even with an open choke.

Thank you for all the responses I appreciate it... My Mossberg 500 only has the Blackhawk Knoxx PistolGrip...it has helped a great deal with the recoil pain in my shooting hand... before I replaced the factory grip I would not enjoy practicing firing from the hip...the Blackhawk has allowed me to enjoy the practice...it takes practice to get proficient shooting from that position... but I have gotten quite good...I'm up there in years and with various injuries I had to go this route... I wouldn't recommend it unless you have the time to practice...

You might consider getting a laser.

For slugs I like Federal or Winchester in a Foster style slug. My Mossberg seems to like Brenekke slugs. Don't know about primary use for HD, but I do keep a couple in the side saddle. I prefer #1, 00, or #4 buckshot for HD.
