All this shotgun talk is making me want to get mine out.

Just an FYI, both Remington and Mossberg have just come out with 20 ga versions of their Tac14 and Shockwave smoothbore short "firearms". The 20 would make a pretty handy truck gun IMO.

Don't need to read the article: Yes, yes it is.

At least in my opinion, as far as the "one long gun" to have if you are only having one....super-high utility weapon/tool.

Shotguns are super versatile. However, for every advantage it has, there are also drawbacks. Especially if you are looking from a prepping point of view. Assuming 12ga since it's by far the most popular and has the best variety of ammunition. The ammo is extremely big and heavy. Carrying a significant amount is unwieldy at best. They are also not easy for some to handle. The size and recoil is not friendly to smaller statured people. Anything over birdshot can be a handful for many.
I'd never say not to choose a shotgun, but I think everyone should be realistic about what they choose and why.

Ronin: 20g south. SO, as long as your stature is say, at least average 8yr old girl, you'll be fine....

But yes - there is no such thing as the "perfect gun" alone. Always the shooter and the situation for context. Much rather you use the gun YOU are comfortable with.

We use the Lawman (which is the same thing as Federal from what I understand) flite control 00 buck at work.  Thought this was an interesting video.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.


Quantity has a quality all of its own.
