Hey guys and gals, I'm back, and healing up quite nicely post surgery. Here is the situation. I have a mossberg 500 I have completely fitted for home defense. Promag Collapsable stock/pistol grip, 18.5" barrel, one point sling, hogue forend, barrel mounted picatinny rails holding a red laser for point and shoot and a streamlight TLR1 with a remote coil back to the forend for complete flashlight control without having to take my hands away from the firing/racking position. Oh, and a sidesaddle holder for 6 spare rounds and another 3 in ANOTHER side saddle on the weak side of the promag. All on all, it's pretty much my dream home defense shotgun. It's also the gun my wife would have the best chance of knowing how to use in a home invasion scenario. I plan on having her familiar with both my ar15 AND the shotgun so she is proficient with both, but that may take some time. Since she already has been drilled a few times about shotgun operation and where I wan her positioned calling 911 in the event of an intruder, that's the gun I want in her hands (for the time being). I would also wanna weapon in this scenario, and the only other gun I own is my badass AR15. I don't live alone, but the house next to me is owned but never occupied (old hoarder lived there, got married, now hides the house and her previous boarding problem from her husband so the house is maintained but never occupied). In the scenario of a home invasion, my little sister (20, going on 21) lives with my wife and I yogi e her a taste of what paying rent and providing for herself would be like... I would want to go get her, and bring her back to the safety of the master bedroom where my wife is. I currently do not have a flashlight on my rifle, and I'm thinking I need one. Once my wife becomes proficient with the AR15, however, I could have her with that and I'll take the shotgun with me to retrieve the sister/hunt down the BG who had the balls to break in to my house... (we have three 60ish pound dogs who would also help with this). I'm stumped, I can't decide if I want a flashlight on the rifle or not. I'm leaning towards yes, just in case, but it's a rough call. Since I find myself liking the vertical forgrip better than angled, I could easily grab another TLR-1 and remote coil it to the forgrip.... But maybe a push button type light with a strobe option would be better. I am open to all suggestions/input. I'm concerned about adding extra weight to the end of the gun, as well as price. I dont just want any flashlight, I wan one meant to BLIND and disorient the attacker so I have a few moments advantage. I have no experience with sure fire, but I do LOVE streamlight. I guess that love affair started back when I bought and trusted my life on their firefighting lights.... Feedback!
