I would recommend, like the others, a Mossberg 500, Mossberg 590A1, or a Remington 870 Express. I personally have a semi automatic Remington Sportsman 58, but I do not count on it for home defense. Instead the intruder has a few options; One meet my 1911A1, two meet my wife's 1911, or three meet both of our 1911's.

Personally I wouldn't count on the working of the pump on a shotgun to warn or terrify the intruder, because I'm not going to give them any warning for breaking into my home to harm me or my family. Secondly I don't really care if they hear it or not, because I don't hope they get scared of the sound I would rather they get scared of staring down my 1911's barrel.

i bought a mossberg 500 pump for that reason. when i rack that slide, i know as long as i have ammo in the magazine, it's got a very good chance of going boom when i pull the trigger.

plus, the sound like power said. tell me you wouldnt crap your pants if you broke into someone's house, fumbling around in the dark and you heard that noise. i know i would, but i'd never break into someones house to begin with.

and then there's the cost. my brothers 1100 semi was $700 USED at a gun store. F that. my mossy was $350 out the door. $350 buys a lot of shotgun shells and accessories. speaking of accessories, the 870 and 500 have a bunch available.
hm... but doesn't semi also have that racking sound when you're loading for the first time? lol i'll keep my unloaded so... i think i can still get that rake.

Number 1 most terrifying sound when breaking into a house? Big Dog Barking.

Extremely close number 2, almost a tie: Shotgun having a round jacked in the chamber.

Seems the common criminal is just slightly more afraid of a dog than a gun.
should sound like "oh that's a fingerpull away from blowing my brains out" lol

yes again, sorry everyone for miswording my thoughts.

I DO NOT MEAN TO SHOOT THEM IN THE BACK...

apologies

Strictly for home defense....I have recently become a fan of the Mossberg 590A1. A tactical shotgun, all milspec.

not the same, but like the other guy said, why give them a warning noise. ever heard the quote, "the only unfair fight is the one you dont win..."?

IMO. you need to do some futher research into the legalities and resposibilities of owning a firearm before even thinking about buying first. first and foremost using a firearm in defensive situation is a last resort, not your first reaction. only way i would ever fire at someone running from me would be a situation where someone life was in dire threat and only if that was the last resort. only time i would ever fire at someone in a vehicle if they were trying to run over me or a loved one. owning a firearm is a right, but a right that carries grave responsibility. firearms are not toys or a fashion statement, they are tools that deserve respect and safe handling and can give a lifetime of enjoyment and protection.

I know you don't want to pump between shots so you want a semi auto--but consider other optionsStoeger Double Defense

That's a pretty sexy double. I think I still prefer high polished bluing, walnut, and an engraved action though.

I'd get that, I would just be trying to get something more "traditional" to set next to it too.
