Default Tactical shotgun

Hey guys,
I'm wanting to either build or buy a tactical shotgun for home defense. I've got two shotguns I use for hunting, both Remington 870. Any ideas or suggestions on what to get? My budget would be around $500, if possible. Thanks in advance!

Mossberg 500, or Maverick 88 as far as a tactical shotgun. You could also go with a Stevens 250 but it is harder to accessorize.

Just get another 870 tactical model. They come w/ a rail already installed on the receiver a tube extension and I believe a muzzle device for around $400. You're already familiar w/ the 870 and it's one of the best around, win/win.

Mossberg 500 Persuader/Cruiser 18 1/2" barrel , may make a good choice for the price but they have many out there to choose from

Their chainsaw model (which is a cruiser with a handle on the pump) is pretty nice too.

Thanks, I think I'm gonna look into the tactical model, I've never had any issues with 870, so like you said win/win
