Now you are going to have to get mom to get the shot gun obviously but if you are safe and know how to use a gun if you don't know how take a safety class with mom they can be fun. If you do all this I don't see any reason why you couldn't have one in your room also I mean **** your old enough to drive. Also know though you can not take it out of the house till you are 18 Always be safe and responsible glad you are going about this the right way I know when I was 15-16 i was always gettin asked if I wanted to buy a gun. Also welcome to the forum
I agree with you, but things seem to have changed in America about a great many things when it comes to our youth. I think it is in everybody's best interest to first get permission from a parent before offering advise. This can be about drinking, girls, puberty, religion etc.. it is best to cover your ass. No offense to the young man, but people love to sue and throw fits these days. Not saying your mother would, but in general. Look at prayers in the schools, hell even saying the pledge. If his mother came to me and asked for him to one of my courses, I would be happy to. My two oldest are 13 and 16 and they are very good with firearms and self-defense. If one of my students would ask me what shotgun to buy, I would say a Mossberg 500 or 590. It is better then Remington due to the easy to manipulate safety on the top where the thumb is located. The materials and reliability is also top notch. 9 shot magazine is ideal. 00 buck for home and bird shot for an apartment. Take a course with the family and practice practice practice. What ever you do, do not listen to Joey Biden!!! Your mother is welcome to ask for opinions on this sight too. I am proud to see our youth wanting to protect their family. Most of them live in the cyberworld oblivious to their surroundings. Kudos!!!!!

Good for you. Nothing wrong w/ protecting your mom and home. But like others have said Get your mom to go to your local gun store and ask. I would suggest a 410 pump or single shot to start with but find out what the laws are in your state, first!

Well then go for the Mossberg!!!!!!!!
Well, now we are helping mom. She is welcome to join in the forum. There are women already members. What to carry? What is she looking for? Revolver or semi, safety?, striker fire or DA/SA? Has she chosen a caliber-she already shoots so what is her prefered caliber? How much is she willing to spend? Talk to us mom....

Would be glad to help your mother. Check your laws. If you have a castle defense doctrine, in most cases, you are free to shoot as long as you feel your life is in danger. This world is very dangerous.

Double action and single action

You you are looking for only single action gun, then a 1911 is your best bet. Guns can also be both double action and single action. This means the first shot the hammer is down. The next shots the hammer will automatically stay back and there is less of a trigger pull. Guns like Glock are only double action striker fire. You will get the same longer trigger pull each time. I recommend a DA and SA semi-auto. I recommend an HK USP .40 Caliber. You can get in full size (for the home) or compact (concealed carry). The gun is a polymer frame (like a glock), that has a decocker and safety. The spring makes the recoil of the gun very light. It has very good three dots sights. It is German engineered and made for the battle field. It will take any abuse you give it. It has 13 rounds magazines for full size, but you can buy extended mags. It is used around the world by military and police. I feel a gun with all these features (DA/SA, safety and decocker) is important because it offers various carrying options for various situations. It is one of the best handguns on the planet. Sig P226 is the best handgun on the planet, but costs a lot. The Seals use this gun. You can get the Sig P226 in .40 too. The Sig is a metal gun with no safety. This is a full size pistol though. Sig offers compact versions too, but once again it will cost money. I own both and will post a picture for you in a little bit. I have the pics on my IPAD.
