    What shotgun do you have for home protection?

    I have a 870 that I've put a pistol grip butt stock on, shorter tactical barrel and synthetic hand pump grip.

    It's soley for home protection. It's very easy to move around with in close quarters.

    Tell that to my buddy, who wants to get a pistol for home defense. He thinks he'll pull off all this video game maneuvering. I told him to get a shotty and keep his wits about him.

    Nothing wrong with an HD pistol if you're properly trained, but a shotgun is best.

    I don't currently own a HD shotgun, but it's slated as my next purchase.

    under my bed

    12 ga. Mossberg 500 with a Copstock folding pistol grip loaded with 00 alternating with slugs. Overkill, I know, but I live alone and am not worried about rounds penetrating walls.

    The Mossberg kicks hard with the original stock but with the Copstock , you can fire it one-handed.

    Mossberg

    Nothing fancy, a Mossberg 500 loaded with 00 buck. I keep it in my bedroom, just beside my bed, chamber empty, have to jack it once and I'm ready!! I sleep well knowing that!

    Some of you may tell me that I only have 2 shots with it! I have my Ruger .45 sitting at the head of my bed and it has #'s 3-11 if necessary! I would rather have the shotgun initially, but if there were a gang, I'm pretty handy with the .45! If there was a dozen, I guess I could just hang it up!!

    ;)

    What they said only substitute 870 Express for Mossberg 500. :) (Nothing against the Mossy mind you. Just have the express.)

    Remington 870

    but I have a Mossberg 500 series in the truck. Feel VERY safe with either of them.

    Mossberg 590 with Federal Low Recoil 00 Buckshot chamber empty. I figure if it comes to it chambering the first round is the only warning they get.

    AK-OK I hear ya. Currently I have an 870 with top folder, side saddle, Streamlight and extended tube. I have tactical buck in the tube.

    Once the Big D is complete I am giving her the 870 and I will be using the Saiga 12 once I get a light outfitted on it. (get my 10 round mags this week) Woohoo!! I also need to find a buttstock for it. It doesnt work to well when the current one is folded.
