fuck mossburg peace of shit....get the 870
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 623805

That's a little harsh! Remingtons definitely have a nicer fit and finish, but I've got 2 Mossberg POS that have never failed to go bang or cycle ammunition.

Think I'm picking up a Remington 870 express tonight with a syntetic stock. Wal- mart has it for $277.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Ok, new question. Folding stock vs a coventional stock? The folding stock seems good for compactabilty.
 Quoting: Pharmacist

Portability is the only reason to think about a folding stock. As I stated way back in this thread, keep the buttstock on. Typically even in a home defense situation a shouldered shot can be taken. And if you have to shoot from the hip/side (practice, practice, practice!) you can clamp the buttstock down with your arm/elbow.

Still recommend the wood stock, but you can always retrofit later.

i like the new breacher/tactical cruiser model

had one in my hands a couple of days ago, i will own one soon
 Quoting: malu


Ummmmm....nice.

I was looking for something along these lines for HD.

I just wish someone made this type of shotgun in a smaller gauge- maybe .20 ga or even .410.

I'm a woman, and I just can't deal with the recoil from a .12 ga.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 686546

Remington & Mossberg both offer 20 ga. and .410 bor pumpguns. Don't buy into the nonsense about pistol grips, laser sights, tactical heat shields, etc. Get yourself a good, basic, wood-stocked pumpgun, then learn how to use it.

Besides, what do you think the gummint would come for first, the wood-stocked shotgun for bunny hunting, or the nasty, evil synthetic-stocked gun with the pistol grip?

Plus, once you buy the basic gun, if you decide you want to 'upgrade' later, you can find multiple sources of aftermarket parts.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Winchester 1300 defender is another good option, cheap, reliable, 3" mag.

Mossburg 500 8-shot is another cheap and good.

Rem 870 is a touch better quality, but more money.

Benelli autoloader is best if you have a grand to spend on it.

I already own a .20 ga Mossberg pump shotgun... :-)

Granted there is less recoil then my husbands Remington .12 ga, but I still find it a bit unwieldy.

In a HD situation, I could not see myself struggling to get this thing up to my shoulder so I could fire it.

About "upgrading" though... that might be an option. ;-)

I also have a .410 ga single shot bolt action shotgun, and I rather like the .410. Not much recoil.

I like the idea of shooting from the hip, that would work well if your attacker is closing in on you.

I'm much less likely to miss with a shotgun than with my .38.

You need one shot, one kill without the mess. Do you even own a home? Probably not.

Either one will do nicely. The Mossberg's safety is better located for lefties.
 Quoting: Evil Twin


Not mine, its on the top by the grip, I can hit it with my thumb. I have a 500 persuader, 20 gauge. The lever is in a bad place, so I have to trip it, pull the trigger and then load so it stays up. Rack, safety and shoot. Otherwise, I like it.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Just put a deposit, at my local gun shop, on a Remington 870 express tactical, 2009 Model with 18" barrel And extended mag. The 2009 model ccomes with a threaded barrel for changing chokes, but comes with a breaching choke. 2009 also comes with a new pump grip that is better and also came with ghost rails.

Walmart didn't have what I was looking for.

I'd link some good videos I found if I could ever get my home PC unbanned...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 686546

If you find a Mossy 2o ga unwieldy, and you still want a 20 gauge. Then get yourself an H&R Topper or NEF Pardner. Try the youth model.

These are very light guns that are easy to maneuver, accurate, and very reliable. The downside: They kick like a mule, and there are plenty of people that would say that a single shot is not good for HD (albeit better than nothing.)

If home defense is truly the concern. Get a .38 revolver and practice using it. A revolver is quick and utterly reliable under stress (as long as you don't screw around with the trigger tension.)

The only downside is less ammo than a semi-auto, and if it is taken from you, the bad guy will not be stumped on how to use it, and likely kill you with it.

Best thing to do in an HD situation... get to a safe locked room with your loved ones and call 911. In the room, have a shotgun with you and a pistol, or two. If your loved ones also know how to shoot, even multiple intruders will not come through a barrage of pistol and shotgun fire!!

Dozens of them. Armed to the teeth. I'm outnumbered. Outgunned. But the alley is crooked, dark, and very narrow. They can't surround me. Sometimes you can beat the odds with a careful choice of where to fight.

Re: What's a good shotgun?
Cool - shotgun discusstion again!

Just remember - simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.

I like the 870 better, though there's nothing major wrong with the Mossberg. Minor complaints about the Mossberg are the plastic trigger guard and safety button.

You don't need the laser, tac light, collapsible stock, or any other gingerbread. Stick with the regular blued metal and wood stock. Extended mag is nice though.

For the defense side, get the 18-inch barrel, and make sure it is Remchoke equipped. With modified or improved cylinder choke it will do anything you need defensively, and much of what you need for hunting. Even slugs (old-fashioned Foster type, not the new fancy stuff) will be useful in it to 50 yards. If you need to go beyond 50, put a rifled choke tube in it, and you're good to 100 yards.

With the $$$ you save by not buying gingerbread, get the rifled barrel with cantilever scope mount, and mount a Leupold Rifleman 2-7x33 scope to it. Now you have a switch-barrel rig which will serve nicely in almost any situation you can imagine.
