wut.
If I'm running around the state in possession of a SBS or suppressor, my agency needs to be the registered owner on the Form 4 or Form 1. If not, I'm committing a felony. I can't run around with one and claim it belongs to the agency. It actually has to be registered as such.

Long story short, Mossy's are horrid guns, every single one I have shot has had feeding problems, bad racking, loose slide, gritty, etc. Ideally a Benelli M4 should cut the cake for SHTF but, it gets spendy, very quickly. IMHO, if I did not have an M4, I would get the Remington 870 Tactical with Breecher Muzzle. Add on a Knoxx stock and a Surefure and you have an excellent HD weapon. As for ammo, I would choose 00 Buck.

I chose not to go the shotgun route for HD because I have two big dogs. I just tried to think of what would happen if some stranger made their way into the house, the dogs would be all over him. I couldn't live with myself if I hit one if them, so I chose not to go that route.

Question - if the racking of the shotgun "would be enough to scare off someone" does that mean that it's not being kept loaded, or are you sacrificing a round out of the chamber in exchange for an audible scare tactic?

Mine is completely unloaded under the bed....it's actually not HD at all because I live in a safe neighborhood and not worried about it....HOWEVER if someone is breaking in, there are shells next to my bed and within 10 seconds there will be a round in the gun. I would keep it loaded if I was in a bad neighborhood. You can always unrack and rack it with a round in....just release the action.

Remington 870 gets my vote. Personally when I read things like what Reedo wrote it really turns me off to certain guns. Even when it's only one review. Actually saves me tons of money lol.

I have had such bad luck with Mossberg, and I cannot understand how so many people seem to like them. I was a solid Remington fan for a long time until I got onto my Dept and about 1 in 5 of our 870s mechanically malfs at the range during quali or training. I suspect that our shotgun armorers are slacking and not replacing parts that should be replaced, though. Lord knows every time we shoot I have to bring my own lube because the instructors never bring any. I have learned that shotguns do require lube for higher round counts, and much like the M4s, they like to be wet. For some reason, Mossbergs have never worked well for me, regardless of lube. I think Remington makes a superior shotgun overall. However, Remington has been slipping on their QC for their manufacturing, so they're regularly dropping down a couple pegs every now and again when I hear more complaints about their QC issues.

This is why, in the end, I just stick with Benelli. If I wanted a pump gun, you can damn well bet I'd buy a SuperNova Tactical.

Are the Wilson Shotguns built off of the 870 or are they their own build? Pretty Expensive...but for Wilson, normal.

870 Tactical gets my vote as well .

Over 1-2000 shells through it w/o a single equipment malfunction.

From my understanding, Wilson gets the base components from the manufacturers (Remington, SureFire, etc) and then assembles it all in-house. They engrave their information into the right side of the receiver below the ejection port.

The shotguns are really pretty inexpensive by Wilson standards. Base price is $1350 for the Professional, and I think it's around $1500ish for the pistol grip stock, which is what we have. It actually adds up pretty fairly. It's not the typical astronomical Wilson price.
