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.
+1 on all of this. I mean the best thing you could do is decide whichever feels better in band. There are very small differences between these two shotguns, and it will just come down to whichever feels more comfortable to you.

That is the truth. You are not going to go wrong with either Remington or Mossberg in a pump shotgun.

P pistol grips ar real rough on the wrist from my understanding. If you want one I would go with a folding stock. They say if you don't shoot a hd or ccw wepon once every few months you might as well not have the gun. The more your comfortable you are with that gun the better prepared you will be when you need to use it. Also if you are married or live in girlfriend get input from her on what she will be more comfortable shooting. Like my wife is scared of my 12. And she hasn't even shot it. in my eyes there is a lot into what makes a good home defense wepon. Also for accessories if you ever have to shoot the gun, you will end up in a court house. The more overboard it looks, it makes you look more it makes you look trigger happy. So keep it practical.

You couldn't go wrong with either the Mossberg 500 or Remington 870. Also, if your just looking for home defense, the Mossberg Maverick 88 Security is also worth a long hard look.

Like a lot of the others have said, Remington or Mossberg are going to be the best for your purpose and price.

I own a beretta al390 and it is a very nice semi-auto shotgun. Very reliable. Also the Remington 870 is good. But I heated they are taking it off the market. Am I wrong??
