An 870 is the tried and try favorite by most. It has ridden in many of a cruiser for years. I have said it before and I will again, if you pull a gun be prepared to use it. This notion that the sound will drive them off is not always true. Bruce the 20 ga is fine for your intended use. If it is just you and your wife in the house I would stick with 00 or maybe #1 buckshot as a shotgun is not near as bad as a rifle. If you are concerned about recoil get some of the new Federal Law Enforcement shotgun ammo, it is low brass and designed to have alot less recoil. That is what rides in my 870 at work. As far as ribbed or un that is apersonal preference, many women like the ribbed, oh I digress... Anyway good luck
