Thinking ahead on these matters is a good thing. My hearing is damaged from close quarter firing of 5.56, 7.62, 7.62 x 39, 9mm, .45 ACP and 12 Ga. I “ feel “ 5.56 and .45ACP in my bones in a confined area. 7.62 out of a short barrel can jar the teeth as well. For some reason, the 9mm and 7.62 x 39 don’t jar me as much. In the heat of the moment you may not notice it but sooner or later you will. Short barrel 7.62’s knock me for a loop. I am betting a .357 would too. I am not too far off from hearing aids as it is.

As far as HD, I am very fond of a simple and I hope soon the be available again option: Remington 870 Express Youth Model with both slugs and buck shot. They are handy and can be used by almost everyone.
