.... A short barrel pump shotgun with pistol grip is more attractive to me....
Trust me, shoot a 12ga w/a pistol grip once with buck shot or a slug and you'll lose the attraction REAL
fast. Keep in mind those movie hero's are NOT shooting real shot shells.
If you want a home defense shot gun, I suggest the Rem 870HD. It comes with a factory mag extension. I added a Knoxx stock to mine. With the Knoox stock #1 & Deer Slugs feel like #8 out of a 410.
A 125 lumen flashlight & XS ghost ring sights round out the package
