its a shotgun you dont want any mods.

Knoxberg recoil-reduction stock. Heat shield.

Shooting slugs packs a punch. I shot 100 rounds of 2 3/4 birdshot, 15 rounds of slugs. The slugs pack a harder punch and raise the barrel more after firing. Your shoulder will thank you too. :P Plus the barrel gets hot when shooting multiple rounds.

Having said that, get a Mossberg 500 or 590. Small, easier to hide in the home, holds 5 shells, (6 with one in chamber). Easy to grab cold, unlock and load blindfolded in under a minute. (Practice makes perfect.)

Not a sport gun, but I do take it to the skeet range. If you are going to use a gun, it is best to fire it and get to know it every way you can.
Accuracy is for crap; no choke so it shoots like a blunderbuss, but you can get 3-4 out of 5 accuracy once you know the gun. I'd be interested to see how the breach barrel fires.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Surprisingly enough, Norinco makes a really good 590 knock-off. Relatively cheap, too.. very reliable. Have taken several shotty classes to get familiar with it and its never let me down.

Oh.. well.. I might have the "assault-shotgun" version, though.. its painted black.

Taurus Judge 45/410. Handgun

Shoots 410 or 45 long colt. shoot them in the face with #6 to blind them and then follow that with either buckshots or a couple of 45 lc hollow points.

Much less bulky than a shot gun. Wide dispersion at close range too. Got one right by the bed. #6 in the face would ruin your day (if it didn't kill you). 45 lc is a proven manstopper.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 743751

The new Judge does seem interesting. For me, it's a Taurus 605: 5-shot .357, 2" barrel, titanium. Only good for close range, but I don't have a big house. Hammer first drops on a .38 shotshell. That should give an intruder pause to reconsider their actions. By then, I am fully awake and if they persist, a 158 grain JHP will hit the mark, bringing the encounter to a close. I would like to add Crimson Trace laser grips, just don't have the $300 or so.

And apparently it's selling like hot cakes. But I suspect a hit in the face with #6 ends the fight. I would like to see some patterning results...just haven't looked through the gun rags enough.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
They did a study years back and determined that the sound of a pump shotgun behind a door was the most freightening sound you can make to scare off an intruder.

You can be out of cartridges and it still does the trick.

Also saves having to replace the door or patch a hole in the wall to fix warning shots.

Ok, new question. Folding stock vs a coventional stock? The folding stock seems good for compactabilty.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Shotty is not great for home defense, to loud, bulky as fuck, heavy and extremely dangerous to EVERYONE.

Get something smaller, [link to en.wikipedia.org]


Shit will put the victim down without much of a mess. Don't expect them to be breathing if shot in the chest, headshots are instant kill, never heard of anyone surviving a .45 to the dome. Its small enough to allow you to be able to maneuver quickly.


[link to www.rrarms.com]

I beg to differ! Any knowledgeable shooter will tell you a shotgun is the #1 choice in home defense. Even #7 or #8 shot will do the job. The #1 problem with using bullets inside the home is over-penetration through interior (and possibly exterior) walls.

 Quoting: Pharmacist

Conventional wood stock.

Much more durable, and aids in controllability.

Better for reloading too - clamp it against your side with your strong side elbow, while keeping the barrel pointed in the direction of the threat.

Unless it's a nice thick piece of wood. Hit him hard enough to break the stock and I guarantee you broke an important body part too.

I was reading on one of the gun forums recently where a guy took his brand new Benelli with a synthetic stock and butt-stroked his garage wall with it. He hit a stud and snapped the wrist of the stock in two.
