    I have this wonderful 12 ga from 1968. It has an 18in barrel. It is awful fun to shoot. Very reliable and good looking. Anyone have one and like it? A home defense weapon for sure. I keep it loaded with 0 buckshot.

    'Pics or it didn't happen' is a THR staple. Never been a fan of them myself, more an 870 guy, but my Dad likes them; He had one for a patrol car shotgun for 27 years.

    I owned a 1300 (same gun, chambered for 3" shells) for some time. Never had a pump that was slicker. Made an 870 or Mossberg 500 feel clunky by comparison. Wish I'd kept it. :(

    Close...I have a Model 1300 in 20 gauge that I bought a couple of extra barrels for. Makes for nifty home defense shotgun with the 18" barrel and a nice upland game gun with the 22" barrel.

    I put together a 20 gauge shorty version.
    Can't figure out how to insert an image I uploaded to another THR thread. Never mind

    Having a defensive shotgun you're comfortable with, do a bit of practicing with your chosen ammo - and you're good to go... Great looking guns...

    I had a 1300 that was very nice. Wish I didn't have to sell it
