Any of them, a HD shotgun is not really anything special. You will find a low end Mossberg Maverick does just a good of a job as and expensive Benelli.

I have a Mossberg Mariner Defender in 12. I've shot 1000s of shells through the thing and never had a hiccup. I have a composite stock with spring loaded mags in each side and the tube holds at least seven. Seems like you can hit the ground running with plenty of fire power.

I won't say that it's the best, but I like it.

I have a Mossberg 500 persuader for HD and 3 gun competition. It has never failed to fire. Great gun for anything and easy to replace barrel, one screw.

Would like to get an AA-12 shown in the 2 videos. Sweet weapon.

The simpler and more familiar the better. It should be like the old, trusted wife...so I keep watching this shotgun porn with all those slim, hot scatterguns, but keep coming back to my proven Ithaca M37. She never complained.

I have several Shot Guns, and prefer my "Vang Comped" 590A1, or my Stoager Coach Gun for HD.

My wife prefers the 20, I like the 12.

I recently picked up a Mossberg 930 SPX and have been quite pleased with it.

Mossberg 500s haven't had single action rods in decades, and mostly they were on the smaller gauge guns.

This is my 20 gauge from 1999 and it has dual action bars.

You people are probably tired of seeing this one.......

....but, it's the result of an evolution in shotguns that has become my idea of the perfect home defense shotgun. This is not to say it's the perfect shotgun for you, but it is for me. Over the years, I've had a Winchester Defender, Mossberg 590, and this Remington 870 Police Magnum.

I like the original short magazine that provides 5 shots, or 4+1......because I've come to prefer lighter weight at the muzzle for maneuverability. It also allows me to chamber a slug or specialty round with the use of the sidesaddle. Sling is because I can foresee a possible need to use both hands for some other task, and I don't want to lose control/possession of the shotgun. Rifle sights are for slugs, and longer Wingmaster forearm makes use of the rifle sights better because it allows for a more appropriate hand position. The Wingmaster forearm is modified to fit around the sidesaddle when cycling. Oversized safety is a must on an 870 used for HD......trigger finger can be at the "ready" position, while at the same time it's touching the safety. 18.5" cyl bore barrel better opens up buckshot at closer range. With the cyl bore barrel, slugs are a little less accurate at distance but well within minute of bad guy breadbasket at 100yds.

Hog nice real nice. KISS is the way to go. You can't go wrong with a used 870.
As others have said you can get one in the $200 price range. The older the better Wingmasters are very smooth.

The absolute best way I can recommend or describe my situation is by saying this, and those who know me know how I feel about my dog. I simply cannot describe or overstate how important my mainest man my Australian Cattle Dog is to me. I would kill you to save him, definitely. ( :- ) ).

SO having said how important he is to me, if I needed to quickly defend my dogs life, I would grab my M930SPX. Over any of my other guns an I wouldnt want a different shotgun to use, only the M930SPX.

I would like to own a Benelli Supernova Tactical and a M590A1 because they're awesome, and someday when I move I'll want one of those brand new Benelli M4 H20's but ... still, M930SPX for my loved ones.

Thanks 4Glocks.......

Actually, it's not a Wingmaster, but an 870 Police Magnum that I bought new close to 15 years ago. The only thing that's Wingmaster, is the forearm.

You are correct about the older Wingmasters though.......they can be a heck of a great deal used, and a very high quality candidate for someone to work up a great HD shotgun.

There is no such thing. A Maverick 88 works just as well as a Benelli for the job.

88, 500, 870, m4, 1300, etc...all practically the same. Just a matter of price/features.

I am no LEO and I am no Military Man but I have duck hunted for 40 years and 8 of those 40 years were spent calling and/or guiding. I have seen a shotgun exposed to harsh conditions once or twice in my lifetime. I will cut to the chase.

ALL semi-autos fail with extreme use. The Benelli is the best one I have seen as far as requiring very little maintenance. I can provide specific examples if need be.

SOME pumps will fail. Usually it is the result of short stroking the pump action and/or thinking to much about pumping the action. Some 3-1/2" chambered guns have a tight breech for a little while and the warm hulls will hang up a few times but they always jack right out after the gun cools. I have shot a 3.5 870 so much that it worked itself out of the 3.5 sticking episodes.

Benelli Novas are great guns but to me, they are BRUTAL in the recoil department. Mossbergs are great guns but again, punishing to me in the recoil department. I don't know how Remington does it but a cheap 870 Express is one of the best handling, softest shooting shotguns I have ever used. They are very easy to work with and if you spray the Epress finish down with a good spray CLP oil after each use, that cheap Express parkerizing will start to absorb oil and it will bead up like carnuba wax when it gets wet.

Beretta shotguns are excellent as well but demand a little more care due to the gas system.

I doubt i wouldn't trade my Mossberg 590 marine coat for another HD shotgun. 20 inches and 9 round capacity. Hard to beat!
