I decided to buy a shotgun to suppliment (actually dominate) my H/D armiment.
It's gonna be a Pump for maximum reliability, Gotta be a 12 Ga, a 20" barrel and Mag extension would give great firepower but even the standard 5 shots is awsome, and since I am looking at "Used" guns the stock will likely be wood. Remington and Mossberg seem to be eaasy barrel length swappers.
Rifle sights would really help aiming but since I know how small the shot pattern will be indoors I will pratice with a bead till I get myself centered into vital area size groups.
Years ago I had a "hunting" Pump with 24" barrel and I saw thegroups and experienced a lot of shooting so recoil is NO suprise.
I May sling it may not, the sling makes a lot of sense under certain circumstances and for portability and/or Pistol use.
Ammo will be #3 to #5 Buck.
I think I have tohought out most all the requirements but have I missed anything? Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
ZVP

Rifle sights would really help aimingNo it won't.

All it will do indoors is slow you down trying to get a perfect sight picture.

A simple brass bead is all you need.
There is nothing faster you can put on a HD shotgun unless it is a tritium night sight bead and it is too dark to see a brass bead.

IMO: For home defense, & buckshot range, Keep It Simple!
The more junk you hang on it, the heavier & slower it gets.

The Winchester 1300 "Defender" is an 8 shot 12-gauge that is offered with a pistol grip and with a typical shotgun length stock. With 3" shells, it goes down to *only* a 7-shot. +1 in the chamber probably.

Most altercations that involve 12-gauge shotguns get solved after very few shots.

Training and practice will help the most. Hardware is at best a tertiary factor.

In my mind, 'training' implies a professional instructor ... it pays to practice the 'right stuff.'
