Seems to me for a home defense weapon you'd want a large pattern.

Some folks agree with that idea. Others don't.

I don't think of a shotgun as a "to whom it may concern" weapon, unless there's a guarantee there are absolutely no friendlies/noncombatants downrange and therefore in danger from 'friendly fire.' I want everything coming out of the muzzle to go where I want it to go, not where the vagaries of physics sends it, and as I see it, it's my job to hit what I shoot at, no matter what I'm shooting.

Anyone who wants a scattergun is welcome to them, it isn't my job to tell anyone else what they should want. But narrow assumptions can lead to wrong conclusions.
Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!

Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.
