Nah....I don't think so. A SBS might be great but it doesn't fit on or in a night stand. I also haven't come across too many people that are lesser experienced shooters that like the recoil and blast from short shotguns and a lot of rifles. It would be great for guys like us but you gotta keep in mind most people that have guns hardly ever if ever shoot them.....and don't usually even think about the tactics of defending their property. They go to the store, buy what they think they might like or what the guy at the store tells them (or what they read online) and they stick it in their drawer. For most people that's going to be a handgun. For me....I like variety (it's also a great never-ending excuse to buy more guns).
