I may be in the market for a new home defense shotty. I've been reading the threads here and I know I'm going to open a can of worms but asking for favorites and recommendations but I'm going to do it anyway. I have an NEF right now (which I have heard is an 870 clone). At the time I bought it I was also looking at a mossy maverick but I didn't like the way the fore grip felt. My bigger concern is tube capacity, or lack there of. I was reading about problems with tube extensions so I've decided I want a single piece. I have been looking at the mossberg persuader and also the 590a1 special purpose. I really want at least 7+1 but I'm fairly certain I want it in a single piece tube. Apparently certain model numbers are factory installed +2 and some are single piece. The 590a1 has other features like the sites and fiber front end. I'm not overly worried about price (though I'm not really wanting to drop 1200 on a banelli). Assume for a minute that this will be your only long gun, because it would be my only non handgun. Based on that, let the can of worms be opened ! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
