I like the Mossberg Persuader or 590, Or the NEF Pardner Protector. The nod going to the Protector.
The Pardner is a well built gun and the Chinese seem to have a fetish for building good weapons.
I had one in 12 Gauge in the form of the Pardner Pump field gun and it was a robustly constructed gun.
I traded it off as it was a bit heavy for me.
I have the Pardner Compact in 20 ga. with 21" barrel, in walnut and blue and just love the gun.
Any of those guns mentioned will do you right if you do your part.
As to tactical use....
All of the sage shotgunners here have said it way better than I could.
