It would be my 870 Remington or Taurus Judge. Depending on what room I'm in.

I've got an old Winchester m-97 riot gun circa 1940 that fills the bill. Same pair of socks you're wearing too.

I have a Remington 1100 with a slug barrel installed, and five rounds.

If I need more than five 12 gauge slugs to resolve an urban social encounter, it's going to be a rotten night.

Just an ol' Mossberg 500 20 ga. loaded with #3 buck (largest pellet I find locally)... she usually has 5 rounds in it... If I can't win with that, i will flip it around and beat their dang head in with it...

Pardner pump Compact 20ga---5 rounds of #3 buck stuffed in the tube--hammer down on an empty chamber.

Will be getting a 18'' riot barrel for my Mossberg 12ga(basic hardwood stocked Mossy) in the near future--just because I want to use a 12ga and 00 buck shells for HD.

The Mossberg also fits me very well---the Pardner Compact is a touch short and the wood stocked Mossbergs have a slightly shorter LOP than the plastic stocked strickly defence guns.

870 Marine Magnum. Thinking about getting a Mossberg 500 or 590 to add to the firepower.

Remington 870 with folding stock and 18.5 inch barrel and a 1 shot extension (5+1 now)

I typically use 00 buck shot and the last shot is a slug.

A 12 gauge Remington Model 11 autoloader manufactured in 1938; uses 2 3/4 inch shells only; 4+1 capacity; 26" I/C barrel. (Black ?) walnut furnishings; with checkered forearm and checkered pistol grip. Button type safety behind trigger. Flying duck and flying pheasant hunt scenes on receiver. It's not in "like new" condition but it's in at least VG condition and is kept that way.

HD load of choice: Remington Express 00 Buckshot (with a box of Remington Sluggers on hand if required).

Not exactly the tacticool weaponry the OP seems to have had in mind, but nevertheless a reliable gun and load that will stop anything I'll ever need to stop.
