    Will be looking for a tacticle semi-auto home defence shotgun fairly soon. Does any manufacture set one up slick right out of the box? I am sure I need to stick to the semi-auto as I shoot a boat loads of rounds thru semi-auto during the course of a year. In a high stress situation might forget to cycle a pump action. Not brand loyal to anyone in this case. Just want a easy to handle gun with a light, pressure switch, and a large capacity (4+) of rounds. Thanks in advance for your suggestions and photos if you have.

    R-Bolt:

    I don't know if this will fit your bill, but I have the Fn Herstal SLP .12 and this thing is a monster. Eats anything I feed it and ejects the spent casings like a shredder. Very good feel, very light recoil, my opinion, and it runs like a champ. She wasn't cheap, but I have had no problems with it.

    Saiga 12s are inexpensive and built upon the combat proven AK action. 20 and 30 round drums can be had for them as well, making for a very potent combat shotgun.

    Think about it, 20 rounds of 00 buck as fast as you can squeeze the trigger. If that won't destroy a target, chances are that you're ****ed anyway.

    That's a good point Matt - The Saiga seems like a great choice and much cheaper than my FN.

    However, I don't need to worry about anyone broadstroking me with the media brush. Mine is bone stock the way it was shipped, as the manufacturer sold it. Don't blame me, blame them if my shotgun is a bad ass room clearer. :D

    What's your take on Stoegers? They're made by Benelli but seem to be a more budget oriented gun.

    Their Model 2000 can be had with a pistol grip and recoil reducing stock. It also has the option of a 3 1/2" chamber.

    I am afraid I don't know a hell of a lot about them to be honest Matt. I have some experience with the Benelli though and the reviews are mixed.

    If you are going to be shooting big, heavy, magnum loads in the thing, they work great. The Inertia system is really well designed and it tames recoil just like advertised.

    However, if you are going to be shooting less than the magnum loads, like the local PD wanted to do with their door breeching rounds, the energy isn't sufficient enough to cycle the action and the weapon becomes a club in a hurry.

    I like the Benelli design, but when I was comparing it to the FN, I felt the FN was just a better all around design - and it runs with lower power rounds the same way it does with the magnum stuff.

    Pierce County PD ( and their multiple city SWAT detachment ) tried the Benelli and didn't like it. They ended up selling them off and going with tactical 1100's.

    Since you shoot a lot of rounds through a semi auto now, check out
    what the same brand has in tactical. Remington and Mossberg both
    have tactical versions of their hunting and target semi autos.:D

    Carne Frio - That is not a bad idea. I shoot a Benneli SBEII, the safe I would be familar with in the dark. The M4 is a little pricey, although with a quality gun,the resale should be excellent if the need arose. In one and a half years I have worn some bluing off my SBEII with the hours I have handled it in the field. Have used it to hunt doves, upland birds, turkey, waterfowl, and blue rock. Action is dependable with or without heavy loads if clean and lubed. I have had failures with it, when the action was somewhat gritty. I do clean the barrel weekly during the hunting months. It is not as reliable cycling as rumor would have it with the waterfowl crowd. Wore a 1100 down to razor edges ahead of the SBEII over a course of many years.
    The guns the board are coming up with are all interesting and contenders. Tacticle 1100 also would fall right in my hands.

    I'm hell bent on one of the Stoeger Double Defense coach guns. It's up next on the shopping list. I need a good close up zombie blaster and it would be nice to have one that I could strap an EOTech or Aimpoint to.

    Saiga 12's are really overpriced right now though. Wanted to buy one but people think they are worth a fortune right now.

    What are they up to these days? They were still about $600 when I was lusting after one.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say the same thing. :D

    Brownells offers a lot of tatical add ons for the Remington 1100 but, this one looks good to go.

    If, I was going to buy another shotgun for home defence, I would buy a Remington 1100.

    OK - TriStar Cobra - Anyone own one of these. I have a buddy with a good connection on these, that can get me one cheap cheap. I know its a pump, not a semi-auto but I can play with it then pass it along to my son or leave it in the camper. The Cobra's claim to fame is a strong return spring on the pump action. You just pull it back and it returns via the spring. Web site claims it is very fast. Five plus one capacity. Any experience out there with this gun??

    Still the #1 choice of top law enforcement agencies across the country, Remington tactical shotguns are rugged, ultra-dependable and continually evolve as they’re called to serve in new, increasingly demanding environments.
    The Model 870™ Tactical Desert Recon series shotguns are equipped with Tiger Stripe Products® Digital Tiger™ Desert camo stocks and fore-ends, and military-style olive drab powder-coated metalwork for looks as distinctive as their performance.
    These shotguns are available with two different stock designs, 18" or 20" barrels and two- or three-shot magazine-tube extensions. To reduce muzzle jump and recoil, both Desert Recon models come with our special ported Tactical Extended Rem™ Choke tube.

    Looking on TriStar website( TriStar - Cobra Pump Shotguns and Accessories ) it looks pretty good. The MSRP is $349, so you should be able to get it cheaper. However I got my Remington 870 with 18" barrel, 2 shot extended mag for right at $350. Not trying to put down the TriStar (I've never been around one), but you can't go wrong with the 870.

    +1 on that.... Stöeger shotguns are made in Turkey under license of Beretta (Benelli) ...The 2000 model is a Beretta AL391 clone and the Model 350P is a Benelli Nova clone... they are exelent quality guns and deserves a try. I want a Stöeger Cougar (Beretta Cougar Clone)



    Triestar Cobra is a Turkish shotgun made by Sarsilmaz. Sarsilmaz makes exelent CZ75 clones and their shotguns are well made too, a little bit rough finish, but functional and reliable. Now they are making a HK USP clone that's awesome!
