Now, go easy on me. Seriously. Here's my situation, I'm getting a shotgun. It'll sit at home 95% of the time (home protection). But, there's definitely a possibility that I'll have the chance to go hunting or skeet/clay/trap shooting, and I've got a feeling that I'd really enjoy it. Is there any way I can get a shotgun (12g) that I'll feel comfortable with sitting by my bed that I could get by with in the field? Oh, and for the record, I know that any shotgun can be used in an unfortunate situation, but I'm looking for something that wouldn't feel like I'm carrying around rocket launcher when clearing rooms. Additional info: -I'd prefer 12 guage. -My local (indoor) range only allows slugs. This is a different place than the skeet range I referred to earlier. -Multiple barrels is definitely an option, if that has anything to do with my situation. -I'm a total noob and this thread may be a total joke. Thanks!
