Default Tactical Shotguns

Every home should have one. I decided on the tried and true Remington 870 express tactical. Factory mag extension for 7 rounds. Synthetic stock, only weighs 7.5 lbs. I really like the XS Ghost Ring sights. Breaching 18.5 barrel. Should do the job....

SWEEETTT!!! No way to go wrong with the 870.

I bought a Beretta 1301 for home and have the Mossy at the office.

Remington 870 Express Tactical. Excellent weapon.

I consider it one of my primary home defense weapons. It doesn't sit in the safe.

I also looked at the Mossy 590A. Just couldn't find one with the ghost ring when I was ready to buy.Going to OK Corral gun club tomorrow to shoot it, an AR, and a whole bunch of handguns. Will be an expensive day ammo wise.

I live in the same county as the OP, it is a very safe county, especially by south Florida standards. However, in one of our sleepy towns we had a kid basically attack and start eating a couple in their own home, always, always be prepared no matter where you live. Great firearm Sneaky, that rides with me every day...

Well said Fishknut, I would feel safe leaving my doors unlocked where I live. I just enjoy firearms , and I am prepared if need be. With the new drugs on the street, you should be prepared.

I have the mossberg 930. Great great semi auto shooter.

I always wanted the Benilli m-4. Just a little pricey.

Mossberg Maverick 88. I don't know if it is classified as tactical though.as Mossberg describes it as a home defense/security shotgun.

So what is the difference?

University area of Charlotte NC isn't usually a rough area either. Read the news lately?

I love the 500's, but don't understand a pistol grip on any gun with a tang safety. Can't get your thumb up there to disengage it.

I think the term "tactical" is used a bit too loosely. But, in the instance of the model I bought, it has factory extended mag for 7 rounds, 18.5 in breacher barrel, lightweight synthetic stock, XS Ghost Ring sights, 7.5 lbs

These characteristics usually accompany the word "tactical", the only other option I would add is a light. Mossberg makes a very fine weapon.

I looked at the Saiga 12 but heard some competition shooters saying that they lost from jams and the work needed to clear the issues. They went back to more reliable autos even though they sacrificed capacity.

Love the Saiga, though. When it is working right.

With the semi autos reloading faster than you can think to reload on a pump, why would you want a pump.?
