lol, this, what he said. :whistling:Here we go again.
Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. Most popular answer to this age old question.
Pretty much any old 12 gauge shotgun will serve you fine. Even a side by side coach gun not just a pump. Run the gun ya brung and read a book, watch a video or take a class (preferably take a class) on shotgun handling and HD techniques.
A $1000 shotgun wont make you any safer if you dont know how to effectively use it.
That is pretty funny :rofl:Yeah I started out with a $199 Mossberg Maverick 88 and it ran flawless regardless of cheap price and cheap build quality. Its caveman simple and it worked reliably.
But even this would work for home defense!!! Heck it even has a bayonet!!!!!!
I've got one, love it, paid $340.00 and it shoots great. Holds 6+1, shoots 2 3/4 or 3" That's all I need. If you ever have any questions on Remington pumps call aippi.Remington model 25077. This the 12ga 870 HD. It comes with, 18.5" barrel bead sight and fixed Cyl bore choke, with Remington LE 2 shot extension and Remington synthetic rear stock and Speed Feed LE forend.
You can get one most anywhere for around $350.00, of course depend on where you live. You will thank me later.
