For home defense, I recommend a pump shotgun rather than a semi auto shotgun.

I am moving from 12 gauge to 20 gauge only because I am getting up in years and 00 buck in a 12 gauge is starting to become more than uncomfortable when I practice.

I have at three home defense shotguns:
A Remington 870 Express 7 round 20 gauge with a specops stock to allow me the chance to hold the shotgun with my right hand and hold a flashlight or open doors or fight with my left hand.
A Remington 870 Express 7 round 12 gauge with a specops stock to allow me to better live through the recoil and the chance to hold the shotgun with my right hand and hold a flashlight or open doors or fight with my left hand.
A Stevens 350 6 round (I think) 12 gauge. About the cheapest shotgun around for home defense.

I am a pump shotgun advocate. Autos are great but if your auto fails to fire while duck hunting, no harm no fowl. Fails to fire in a home defense situation, not a picture I want to participate in.
