Excellent point. Is there a Federal law that states a shotgun has to have an X" long barrel?

When you write "Federal" do you mean American?

Yup its covered under the NFA act. Minimum barrel length is 18" and total overall length must be at least 26". Otherwise you need to register it the same way you would a SBR. Splatter has a shorty I see, but in Canada they do not have laws regulating barrel length on rifles or shotguns.

Actually the Canadian regs on barrel length only pertain to semi-auto centrefire firearms. So pumps like the two pictured (neither are mine), or levers or bolts have another, different and complex series of regs that apply to them. For instance, the two shotties pictured can be carried and used anywhere it would be legal to carry any 'normal' shotgun. They would also be legal with a standard-type fixed stock; but if one of us attached a folding stock to either they would become "prohibited" (sort of the same as an unpapered SBR in the USA).
It's the law, it doesn't have to make sense.

I like the choice of the shotgun as well.
But you need to consider where you might be when trouble comes-a-knockin'.

With that in mind, I have the 12 ga. coach gun inside the front hall closet, (over the door), the 870 Remington inside the bed room walk-in closet, (over the door), the Glock 17 hung by a mounted magnet under the garage work bench, and one of the 1911s in the bedside stand.

Be sure to think it out... You'll discover what suits you best.
Regards,
TJ

Default mossberg 590

I too decided to pick up a shot gun for home protection. I went with the Mossberg 590 12 GA. pump action. Holds 9 shots, switched the stock out with a pistol grip for that close range action. Maybe you say, 12 gauge to much for the house? oh, blow a hole in the door, were talking about shooting someone here... you think im that worried about the door or a wall after I just shot someone who was in my house? Id be more worried about who's cleaning the guts off whats left of the wall or door behind the guy.
Just a thought...

Mossberg 590 12 GA. Great US made shotgun at a very affordable price. many upgrades available.
