What makes you suggest a coach gun over a pump-action shotgun. I would have thought that the extra ammunition is a bonus, although i have read that it is quicker to take the second shot with the second barrel. Are there other factors such as reliability, weight or accuracy that you are considering?
EDIT: Scratch that, semi automatic shotguns, according to our queen, can only have a 2-round capacity. So that would be a pretty pointless 870. :P Still interested in why you made that choice though, regardless of the fact that i am limited by this.
Welcome to TFF Mart
Keep in mind that while it may be limited to two rounds now;
once/if SHTF, screw the queen and have the availability to restore it to it's full capacity. Unless they weld in the plug, it's not hard to remove the plug. I'll do a bit of research and see what I can find on how they have to physically limit capacity to 2 rounds.
A double barrel coach gun with extractors is pretty simple to unload/load quickly; in fact, I may be able to get off 20 rounds quicker with it than with a semi-auto. The coach gun is much easier to operate and more reliable since it's a much simpler mechanical gun; less to break, less to worry about.
