    I'm really starting to appreciate the shotgun as a primary weapon. There are awesome shotguns here.

    10-4 on that... :)

    I took the plunge in a reasonably inexpensive way this past weekend, picking up a NEF/H&R Pardner (12 gauge pump, 5 shot tube, 18.5" cylinder bore with bead sight, black synthetic stock). It was on sale at Dick's for $199.

    I'm happy with the way it handles. The short barrel allows it to swing and point easily in fairly tight places, and the pump action is reasonably slick (nothing like the speed assist on a Winchester 1300 -- but hey, for $199... :supergrin: ).

    I can't believe that in almost 30 years of firearms ownership, this is my first shotgun! :cool:

    It's a cheap ($80) Aim Sports red dot. It does hold 0 pretty well (doesn't jolt even after about 50 shells on my last range test). The one drawback I've had is the laser doesn't show well when shooting outside at max sunlight (noon Texas summer), so I'm looking around for either a fiber optic rifle sights to back it up.

    simple is better. only thing id add(and id never have one on a pistol) is a gun light or at least a spot for one. I HATE gun lights on pistols as you can use your weak hand for the light..but on a shotty you kinda need both hands..But I LOVE SIMPLE much more than tacticool with a bunch on nonsense hanging off it :) . VERY nice gun.

    This is a really good point. If you have the light mounted and "loose" the weapon, you loose both. But if you have the weapon in one hand and light in the other and loose one, you still have the other. You may still be able to shoot or may be able to temporarily distract your assailant. Smacking your assailant one the side of the head or in the throat with the light even works.

    Wise statement.
