Want to get a good shotgun
 
For home defense , what would be a good one to get that won't break the bank?

Remmington 870, Mossberg's are very reasonable

Agreed. You can possibly find these at Wat-Mart...I know the one in my town sells them. Also, you can check your local gun shop and see if they have any police trade-ins.

Plus, they (especially the Remington) are so customizable, you can find about anything you want for it.

Either of the two mentioned above are excellent - very reliable, very effective.

Mossberg 590a1 20" barrel 8 & 1

I would suggest a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500 with a short barrel and a cylinder or improved cylinder choke. Both have a pump action and typically sell for around $200. I saw a Mossberg 500 at Walmart for under $200 a few months ago.

Do the math 4 &1 or 8 & 1

It's only about 50-70 bucks for a 9+1 extended mag on the 870.

Remington 870 our mossberg 500 would be your best bet. The 500 is lighter and the safety is in an ambidextrous spot so if you are like me and left handed thats a plus. Now I own an 870 and I wouldn't trade it for the world. And if you have a kid (depending on age) the mossberg will be easier to familiarize. both have an abundance of aftermarket goodies. One thing I would advise which ever way you go, don't go pistol grip only. The stock places the recoil in a more manageable spot than just the wrist.
