If you are new to shotguns and want one for home defense, please don't overlook the side by side double barrel. It can be left loaded and not take a spring set, if it has exsosed hammers you can tell when it is cocked, asfor dependability, it is like two different shotguns. You can load one barrel with buck and one with bird or slug, and it can be chamber checked by putting your fingers in the two barrels. let me know what you think>>>
snoman....... P.S. A double does not even know what ammo sensitivity or short stroking means.
