Hello Mas,

What do you think of my new Winchester 1300 defender speed pump ? 18" barrel 7 +1 12ga. It has a Truglo long pipe front sight and is beautiful black. I can choose the normal stock or pistol type grip that comes with but this I've already made up my mind on--I hate pistol grips on shotguns.

I was leaning toward the Rem 870 but there weren't any and really had no choice. It is to be carried out in my coffee farm and provide protection in a 25 yard radius around me.

I want to hear your honest opinion if I could have done better, even if I already went through the deal.

1. You were right to choose conventional stock over pistol grip only.
2. Not sure what a "speed pump" is, but over the years the 1300 series Winchester pumps have not performed to the standard I expect when students brought them to my classes. If you have one that works, good for you; shoot the hell out of it, and if and when it starts to fail, swap it for a Remington 870 or a Mossberg.

Just one guy's experience,

Thanks for the candid reply Mas, not exactly music for my ears!! IŽll try the hell out of it and see if it works as expected.

HereŽs a Youtube video of one exactly like the one I purchased
