Wanted one of these for the house- it's only a single shot, but should clear a hall out pretty well.

I have never even shot a shotgun but I am thinking about getting one for home defense. I have shot hand guns and rifles many times. I am thinking that a 20 gauge would be better for me. I would want to practice with it enough to be proficient. Any suggestions?

I read several posts on here knocking pistol grips, they look cool but I guess they are not very functional?

Thelt- nothing wrong with a 20 gauge. Re: pistol gripped shotguns- yeah, they look cool. I sure that will impress the bad guy. However, they are durn near impossible to shoot with any degree of accuracy. And yes, you DO need to aim a shotgun for it to be effective.

To all- run a google search for Box of Truth. These folks have conducted testing of about 40 different rifle, pistol, shotgun ammo mixes, to see what penetration is really like. Some interesting findings-

Birdshot- really nasty close range wounds, but penetration so slight as to make a one shot stop a matter of luck. Penetrates more layers of drywall than I thought.

Pattern size- at 30 ft (max combat distance you are likely to have inside house, its a lot smaller than you think. Better try aiming.

Penetration from rifles- really varies. I was surprised at the .303 Enfield tests.

I just picked up this Mossy 500 12G, model 52440. Very happy with it, but already plotting my next gun purchase (heh-heh, heh-heh-heh)...
