    Which would you choose, a 12 gauge pump or a Kel Tec S2K GLK22 for the truck? Say for example Occupy protesters started rioting, which would you use?

    For Urban Skeet I would go with a hi-cap 12 ga pump gun.

    REASON: See LEO riot manual. ;)

    Please, I'll take the one that may take more rounds to put a target down permenent, well maybe not. 12ga is fast, powerful and quick to reload.

    Folding rifle or a 12 gauge pump shotgun? 12 gauge pump all the way.

    Gunfight Rule # 7. Drop the one with the shotgun first.

    Note: It doesn't say "...the one with the folding carbine..." for a good reason!

    This is Urban Skeet with Occupy Clays. :D

    I do like the lil folding rifle, but there is just something instinctive and comforting about a pump 12. Sometimes, if i have a bad dream, i will just reach over and make sure the safety is off on the Mossy alarm clock then fall back asleep smiling.

    For urban group issues, i'd go with #4 at the pavement to clip some knees and other sensitive parts; surely those supporting socialist health care would stop to drag their comrades to the EMT's. :D

    Wow! Sounds like I'll have a pump in the Blazer. That KSG is sick! The only drawback though is the chamber length.

    Im gonna go against the grain and say kel-tec s2k,but in 9mm. I don't have a handgun in .40. Reasons? It folds up,can be put in a case,and is more likely to be kept in the truck and be overlooked by theifs and police during traffic stops. It takes 33rd mags and can be concealed,I don't think you want to be that Guy walking down the street with a shotgun plain as day when the whole city is rioting or when the shtf. I'd just want to skirt the trouble areas and get home without incident,and I think the kel-tec wouldn't draw as much attention and can be hidden but still has plenty of firepower for urban domestic disputes.

    I think just the opposite with a folding stock on a 12. Easy to slip out of the way, but full stock when you have room to deploy it. I've been keeping my eye out for a low priced 870 already well broken in to change the barrel and stock on for this purpose. I have a Stoeger auto defense in the house, but I don't think anyone makes a folding stock for it.

    Correction, it can chamber 3" shells as well. Sometimes I like being wrong :D

    No shotgunner is really using 3" shells for almost any application in this regard in any case. There are actually 2-3/4" Magnum (12 pellet) 00 if you really feel compelled...

    As for which gun? I like the shotgun but would be as comfortable with a .40 carbine. Maybe more comfortable. My truck gun is a takedown customized .22 Mag pump but my focus isn't as specific as yours.

    By the way, accordingly, I did not vote.
