Thread: Home Defense Shotgun

  1. Home Defense Shotgun

    I have been thinking of getting a shotgun as one of my home defense options. We all know the +/- of its use. My question is which one? Pistol grip or full stock? Full tube or accept less rounds with the ability to reduce the barrel to minimum legal length?

    Your opinions are appreciated.

    I like the shortest barrel I can get. That would be 18 in under todays laws. The pistol grip would make it eaiser to weild but a regular stock more accurate and more comfortable to shoot.

    Up until recently I have always used one of my hunting shotgun as a home defense gun, but always wanted something different, but when I put away enough money to ge one I would end up buying a 1911 style pistol after adding a little more money. But I finally bought one a Benalli Super nova with pistol grip, ghost ring sights and 18" barrel I added a tube extender it wiil chamber all the way to a 3 1/2" shell. I use 2 3/4" 00 buck shot, the shotgun shoots great holds a great pattern. I am super happy with it and under $400

    I picked up my Remington 870 Express 12 ga for $250 NIB. It is the home defense model with an 18" barrel and a 2 shot tube extension. I put a top folding stock on it to make it even shorter. I love this gun.

    I also put a heat shield, and a shell holder on it. I originally had the pistol grip forend on it, but I didn't like it. I switched back to the original.
    Rem 870 is the top selling shotgun in the world. This little baby is worthy of protecting my family and I, and all for around $325.

    I have the Mossberg 500. 18 1/2 " barrel and holds 7- 2 3/4" shells in the tube.
    I have tried a couple pistol grips but I did not like them at all (ATI stuff).
    I'm looking at getting one of the Knoxx pistol grips at some point but even with the stock stock--that thing sits next to my bed every night

    Damn good post dude !!

    So, yall are sayin that the 18" length is a Fed law ? I can't find ANYTHING for Kentucky, so I'm safe to cut down to 18 barrel length ?

    Also, exactly where does that measurement start and stop on the barrel ?

    Yes, 18" is the federal law. Measurements are from chamber to muzzle.
    You can search the BATFE website for further info.

    18" is the Fed law on the barrel, and I was tolld by an ATF agent, that the overall length of the gun had to be at least 29", am I right?

    I'm thinking about getting one of the Mossberg 590-A1 shotguns from Vang Comp Systems. I'd also like to add the Standoff Device. I think their modifications to the barrel are great.
