I went into the gun shop to look at some guns and saw the new Maverick H12. I always thought Maverick was the poor man's shot gun. I fell in love with the gun as soon as I picked it up. 18 1/2" barrel and about 37 inches overall since there is no action (over/under). I has a tactical mount on the front for a lite and, or laser. The down side is that it is only two shots before reload, but the upside is it is very short, has tactical mounts and no action required for the second shot except the trigger pull. Love it!! It is my new home main defense gun. As far I can see, the quality is excellent! Just sharing. Oh, another down side is that it seems expensive, I paid just under $400 for it.
