So, I decided it was time to get a shotgun for home defense as well as some clay shooting. I decided to settle on a used Remington 870 Wingmaster in 12 gauge with a 26" barrel.
870 Wingmaster for clay shooting .... I am SO jealous! I so wanted a Wingmaster but could not find one ....... then the rifle and reloading bugs bit, and I have made do with lesser shotguns.....
Any shotgun with a 26" barrel for HD ....... I am thinking that barrel is a bit..... unweildy? for that task..... At indoor distances, the extra barrel length won't help your swing/accuracy any and may halt your swing when it hits a doorframe or such...... bad ju-ju, when you really, REALLY need to shoot somebody.
