    Side by side shotgun for home defense-thoughts?

    I am considering buying a Stoeger coach defense gun.Its a side-by-side with a rail under the barrels.I would love to saw the barrel a little shorter leave just enough room for a Surefire light.I know i would only have a couple shots,but i have a 56 shell bandoleer.Not like its slow to reload.My Benelli is a very nice gun,but i got a $900 offer for her.What are your thoughts on using the Stoeger for HD?

    I really like my Remington 870 Express Mag with a shorter barrel. Everyone's shorthairs stand at attention when they hear a pump shotgun rack in the dark...

    I think a Double Barrel and some spare shells is enough, I personally have a Mossberg 500, PGO, w/tritium front sight, 18 1/2" Barrel.

    Thumbs up I have a Stoeger!

    Home defense? Why not?? Side by Sides have been protecting homes and properties for generations.

    Don't even think about firing a shotgun inside your home without ear protection. You will blow out your ear drums. Most people don't think about this.

    Well, since you asked, it seems like an unnecessary compromise to me.

    Yes but when they hear you freaking out because you just short stroked a weapon that should have been ready to go and jammed it they get over it.
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Any firearm is better then none. Just ask Clink Smith from Thunder Ranch. I think a side-by-side would be bad ass! I was looking at the same shotgun myself after reading about it in a gun magazine. I see the double barrel shotgun as the revolver of the shotgun world. As another member said people have been defending them self's and their homes for years with said firearm.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    Sure, I agree. It is just as true that some firearms are better than others for a given purpose. In my opinion, there are better weapons for home defense than a double-barrel shotgun.
