What setup do you think would be most affordable and reliable way to defend your house?
Link Posted: 6/16/2008 8:16:58 PM EST
Affordable and reliable ? Rem 870 or Mossberg 500/590 pump gun.
Link Posted: 6/16/2008 8:20:13 PM EST
Remington 870

What sights do you have on the 870?
Link Posted: 6/16/2008 8:48:05 PM EST
Personally I like the Mossberg Tactical Turkey. I can use it for 'tactical' reasons if the need arises, or more likely for turkey hunting. It's a nice rig.

Remington 870 Police or HD.

Link Posted: 6/16/2008 9:28:59 PM EST
At this point, id say 870.

Until someone makes a semi with a steel receiver, it will be that way for a LONG time.

I want a Rem Model 11 for a HD gun.

(or at least I would if I actually used a shotgun for HD )

I'm all for reliable but "Be-All End-All" and "Affordable" are rarely seen together.

No one ever mentions the Benelli Nova. That's damned hard to beat.

I just picked up a Mossberg 590 with ghostring sights about a week ago and love it. 8 Rounds in the tube, another 6 on the saddle. Going to pick up a sling, bayonet, and light after I finnish paying on my 1911

Both the Remington 1100 and 11-87 have all steel receivers.



Neither of which are very reliable.

I should have said "Not until someone makes a RELIABLE, semi with a steel receiver."

My ideal, aka dream HD scattergun, would be a Ben. M4 SBS with a Surefire. But in the real world where I have to pay for things, my 34yr old 500 with Surefire and side saddle is just fine.

Benelli Supernova Tactical. Among the best pump action defensive shotguns availible.

I must echo "end all be all" and "affordable" rarely go together.


My choice: Mossberg 590A1 18.5" barrel, ghost ring sights, and Surefire Weaponlight. It will go bang every time and it will outlive its owner's grandkids if treated half decent.

What I meant with End All Be All was the shotgun we can all agree is a very good sturdy weapon.

I'm looking at getting an 870

I can get all the "tacti-cool" stuff later, but right now I just need a shotgun that will go boom when I need it to.
Link Posted: 6/24/2008 11:35:59 PM EST
I preferred the Mossberg 500 as I like the location of the controls. I don't know how the Remington 870 is but the Mossberg is so easy to detail strip and reassemble. There is quite a few accessories that are made for the Mossberg also.

870 works every time and made to last

590A1...because I intend to bayonet the bad guy and then shoot him off the end of the muzzle.

He makes a good point, this one.

Benelli M1 Tactical, because warnings are worthless.
Link Posted: 6/26/2008 11:01:44 AM EST
My vote would be a Remington 870 Home Defense model with a SureFire fore-end light. I would load it with 00 buck.

If the sound of you chambering a round doesn't scare them off, the first well-lit and well-aimed shot will take care of the problem.
Link Posted: 6/26/2008 7:29:23 PM EST
Affordable, depends on your definition.

Reliable, in no particular order.

Rem 870
Moss 500/590
Benelli Nova
Browning BPS
Ithaca 37
Win 1300

Yep. The Winchester Model 97 and Model 12 work this way too. All of these guns lack a disconnector.

870 has almost endless options as to configuration

I prefer the 590.

The Winchester 1300 Defender has always been my favorite, The only issue I have with Mossbergs is that it is a pain in the butt to put it back together after you clean it

Westchester Model 12 Riot would be my choice if I was looking for a defensive shotgun.

I have my brand new 870 set up with a Hogue pistol grip (for HD only since I dont expect to fire more than once) and forend. I plan on getting the Mossberg replacement 18.5 tactical breaching barrel (also for HD only). I have a Mesa Tactical LEO adapter for later. Need a bandosling!

I own or have owned the most popular HD shotguns over the years.

Remington 870s Mossbergs, Ithaca 37 riot, Benelli, Browning, SKB, Hi Standard, Beretta, Winchester etc.


The three guns I would trust my life with would be my 18" Beretta 1201FP 18" Benelli M1 and my 18" Winchester 1897 Riot.

Thos are some interesting SG shells going on there.

Saiga 12 FTMFW.

Come on its a 12gauge AK. I dont even like AKs and I know thats full of win.


I bought my Saiga 12 months ago and have only out 4rounds trough it to date

I will admit to never owning either the 11-87 or 1100, but to call either unreliable is a pretty big stretch. Well maintained, they are both VERY good guns that have a much longer pedigree than about anything else currently being manufactured.
