Mine is their Remington Tac 14 version with the arm brace.

I don't know if it is the "best" or not, but I have no qualms with the Rem 870 Marine leaning up next to my bed.

DD,

OP's in Kanana, so, no real guns for him.

So, North of the border, I'd say Mosberg 590 with a load of #1 buck.

Or if necessary to keep the local Mounties happy there's the old school option. Winchester 97.

Boarder?

This thread is great.


The personnel are repelling boarders with shotgun mounted ARs.

I've got a NIB Mossberg 500 bantam youth 20 ga. I'd sell if a fella likes this line of thinking.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will go to LGS and look at Remington Mossberg and Benelli pump action. I was thinking SXP but since no one recommended it it's off my list.

Hard to go wrong with that, either!

IMHO, the guys on here need to remember that it may be a smaller statured person in their house that is called on to defend and a shotgun (or any long gun for that matter) which is too long/heavy/complicated will not be doing them any favors.

You should look at hiring some personnel to clean up that [bleep] hole you live in, Jim. Personal cleanliness shouldn’t be taken lightly.

I'd throw my wife at the intruder and jump out the window.

Kick one of the little dogs for a momentary distraction.

I saw the wife throw the middle child on a snake so she could escape.
