A couple of thoughts jump to mind about this shotgun. 1. First and formost how reliable and durable will it be? Most gunmagazines are a very poor source for reviews. How many negative reviews do you see? The only two magazines IMO that might give an honest review are SWAT and Gun Tests. 2. In terms of replacing my home defense weapons, that is a very hard thing to do. The weapons I use have gone through extensive in my hands testing. I know that they are utterly reliable and are rugged and that I can trust my life to them. I am very disinclined to change them. This shotgun has me curious and I may buy one but I am not in a huge rush. If it ends up being a solid weapon and has good sales, its quite possible Mossberg, Remmington, or Winchester may make something similar thus providing options.
