For HD every1 has an opinion about weapon and round...how about i tell you what i use and you decide if you like it or not?
12 gauge coach(some random Chinese model, but it's never failed)
Sabot slugs(i also don't have to worry about kids or other people, i pretty much live alone)

No complaints with the Ithaca 37.



I have a Benelli Supernova hunting shotgun that has served me VERY well for thousands of rounds and all sorts of crappy conditions, including mud in the action on one occasion, and it never let me down. They make a defense version.

Yep. Practice makes life better.

My personal favorites are all pump action 12s, but that is what I started hunting with and can operate without complicating things with having to think about it.

I'd recommend a quality pump stoked with #4 buck.

A 12 ga. pump shotgun with a butt stock and #1 buck shot. A pistol grip in addition to the butt stock is OK, but the butt stock is critical. An adjustable length butt stock is better than a fixed length butt stock if the shotgun may be used by people of significantly different sizes, e.g., a 5' wife and her 6' husband.
