View Full Version : Having Trouble Deciding...

March 24, 2005, 12:22 PM
Hey guys, I'm new to the forums but I would like to know what you guys think the best shotgun would be for home defense. I have two that I'm trying to decide over.

Those being the Mossberg 590 12gauge, and the Winchester 1300 Defender 12guage.

Any input would be welcome. Thanks guys,

Hey, welcome to the forum!

I'd go with the Winchester over the mossberg. All the older mossbergs I see are shot loose and not quite what they were when new. Longevity is a consideration. Others may feel differently.

I went with a Remington 870 and couldn't be happier. No need to look further for me.

You might want to check on the availability of the Mossberg 590. They're real hard to find.

Thanks for the input. I've started leaning more heavily towards the winchester, just because of the availability, and price. I haven't heared before about the longevity issues of the mossberg but that is definately something to consider.
