I am curious as to who uses a shotgun for home defense.
If you do what kind, make, model, gauge, etc.
Why did you choose that one? What do you like about it? Dislikes?
What type of ammo do you load it with?
Shockwave 12Ga. It’s short enough to be able to negotiate closed spaces. It makes that shotgun sound when you rack it. It’s at the ready, conveniently positioned, but of course I’ve not used it for the intended purpose.
I use a Charles Daily (shockwave style) 410 loaded with a self defense load.It’s light and easy to carry and I usually carry it also in my truck when I go out.My reason for this model was a very great deal on it.
I’ve got three to choose from. I have the Mossberg 590 Mariner that I bought first. 8 + 1 shot, loaded with 12ga 00 buckshot. Then I got a Mossberg Shockwave 12 ga. It is also loaded with 00 buckshot. My most recent purchase is a Standard Manufacturing DP-12. It is the 12ga double barrel pump shotgun that holds 16 rounds of 12ga 2 3/4 inch 00 buckshot. It looks like a “bullpup” gun. Looks like it will be pretty intimidating.
