    Exactly what I was thinking, Carver.

    When I'm in the woods, deer huntin'. I need to see the animal before it sees me. So I will have time to flick off the safety, without it getting so close it get hear me do it. My point is, in close quarters you better have the drop on whatever u r shooting at.

    IMO u can't go wrong with Rem. 870 or 1100.

    I'm a Saiga 12 guy myself. IMO; the BEST tactical HD shotgun available. Although, I do think AA (or sombody) makes a "Bull Pup" semi-12 that I would like to have.

    I also agree with EVERYTHING Pinecone, Carver, Old Grump and Alpo have stated!

    I've been a victim of TWO "home" invasions and I can tell you having to rack the slide 1st is NOT a good idea!

    IMHO: the BG(s) should only here ONE thing: BANG!!

    If some of our more liberal friends wish to warn them and yell "GET OUT of MY HOUSE!" Then by all means, feel free to do so.

    But IMHO, depending on the "sound" of a slide being racked to scare off the BG(s) is a "fools" folly brought to us by Hollywierd.

    A pump shotgun, to me, equals reliability. As has been said some autos are sensitive to certain ammo. A pump shotgun will shoot it if you get it into the chamber. Same thing for the auto IF the mechanism will feed the shell. A light load in a pump gun will work if the person does their job. But in an autoloader that same shell is a jam.

    Another word: Benelli. I've been trying to find a Benelli M3 Super 90 for 3 years. No one around me carries them, or will order one without me putting the full amount up front. I'm not putting that much money down until I see the gun. I don't mind a quarter or so, but not all.

    Benelli is running a factory rebate now on their tactical shotguns.

    Might just be enough to persuade me.

    never give away your position and also pump action is more reliable than semi-auto
