In order to use a shotgun in a tactical situation, without the following items you will find yourself at a disadvantage at some point.

1) Gun mounted flashlight and some type of night sight (tritium, laser, red dot etc.) for dealing with low light.

2) Adjustable stock for guiding around corners.

3) Place on the stock or harness for extra shells.

Much more than this is lagniappe in my opinion. I have cleared quite a few buildings with several different shotguns and never needed anything not listed above.

Sure there's all kinds of crazy gadgets you can put on them, but dealing with low light, tight spaces and limited ammo capacity are the big 3 in a tactical situation with a shotgun.

If you are in total pitch black a flash suppressor would come in handy. But I've never had any night blindness from a muzzle flash that the gun mounted light didn't overcome. Of course that may change as I get older.

Obviously if its a semi automatic shotgun like the Saiga 12 you would not need a place mounted on the gun for extra shells. And you might find a fore end grip useful. But I can't say for sure, I've never used anything but a remington or mossberg pump shotgun tactically.

That part makes no sense. Why would added weight not allow you to be able to handle a 12 gauge?

"When I shoot, it comes off. When I'm not shooting it then its on and in the case."

So if it comes off and is in a case, what's the point of it in general and why isn't it on a pistol like it was designed for? Nobody can see it if it's locked away in a case so then it can't get anybody's attention away from the barrel or be a conversational piece like you said it was
"Extra weight isn't worth being a conversational piece" was your comment.

First thing that came to my mind was "what extra weight?" That bayonet weighs ounces, I dont even feel its there the few times it is (as in for this picture for example). If someone does feel the difference, then they have no business handling a 12ga if a few ounces makes THAT much of an even noticeable issue. If a few ounces of bayonet makes a difference, I'd hate to see what type of gun control results from them actually firing a 12ga.

My Defender is cased and put away at home. No need to have it out unless I'm going to the range or work. For that though, my 930 is my primary long gun.

Now... as far as me stating it had no real function on my shotgun and that it was a "conversational" piece... it got us talking didnt it? You see... it works just fine...

Can I have it? I'll put it to good use I promise!

i am a huge fan of simple is better. that sometimes, less is more.

here's a question, do you need both a light and laser on a shotgun used for SD/HD uasge? does one need a red dot scope for a shotgun used for SD/HD purposes?

IMO, one or the other of a light or laser should suffice. a red dot scope for a shotgun that is for SD/HD usage seems useless, since what distances are you going to encounter within your home? 30 feet or less more than likely. a set of night sights IMO would be better suited.
Moms basement could possibly be big enough to justify a red dot.

First of all, welcome to FTF, have checked out the introductions yet.

Second of all, that thing is awesome!!!

And third, and most important is, as DeltaF said, FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTILL YOU ARE READY TO FIRE! This is a very important safety rule.

Even if you know it is unloaded you should always treat every gun as if it is loaded.
