C'mon folks, the constnt drivel as to which gun is best for home defense is getting old. Frankly, any shotgun you shove in a BG's face will make him void his bladder and beg for mercy.

Doesn't anyone here use a shotgun for fun?

Yes, I shoot trap, skeet, and generally hunt whatever is in season. I like to do penetration tests (for example 3" #4 buck with a magnum load will penetrate a car door at about 30 feet.)

Shoving a shotgun in a BG's face, making him void and beg for mercy sure sound like fun to me.

I enjoy shooting Trap.

You betcha. Sporting clays, skeet, love to bird and rabbit hunt. But use my Beretta to flush out the BG from behind the sofa? No way. I'm too much of a perfectionist. The 28" barrels might hit the lamp in the follow-through! And since you brought up the topic of home defense shotguns......
