Default I'm looking for THE CHEAPEST home defense pump shotgun.

Alright so I'm looking for THE CHEAPEST home defense pump shotgun. Every time I go looking for one they're always 20 GA. I'm looking for a 12 GA. Anybody have any specific gun suggestions? It doesn't have to look good, or have cool additions. I just need one that functions. i'm specificalyl trying to keep it under $300 as I'm short on cash. All suggestions are welcome, and thank you in advance!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Holy crap!! That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for! I'm not going to get it right now as I want to see what all of my options are, but thank you for finding that!! I can;t believe you can still get a shotgun for $200 these days. My mind is blown

Buds will occasionally have LE trade-ins on Mossberg or Remington guns in your price range as well.

You should also be able to find a Mossberg 500 Persuader or Cruiser for under $300.00. These come with extended tubular magazines and a pistol grip.

Do you have any idea how often?! Because I really like the Remingtons, but they're always out of my price range. I also like the Mossberg 500s

They had a bunch a month or so ago but they seem to be gone now. If you like the Mossberg than a Maverick 88 will suit you...pretty much the same gun.

I really like the Remington 870 Express 12g 18" blued, black-synthetic $331.00 SHIPS FREE I's be willing to spend the extra money I think. Is the bead sight going to be ok for HD though?

I have the Mossy 50516 posted above...bead sight is fine at HD distances, just point and shoot, the shell and barrel do the rest.
