If you surf around gun forums you’ll see that “discussions” about “the best” shotgun can get pretty emotional. It’s like guys arguing about Fords or Chevys; not always objective.

Assembling a Remington 870 Pump Shotgun
Is buying American, supporting American companies, important to you?
Then consider the Remington 870 as a strong option for home defense.
We suggest you consider the Remington 870 first and foremost because it is a quality, reliable weapon with a long history of dependability. But it’s also made right here in the USA. You can pick up cheaper shotguns, such as the NEF (made in China), Charles Daly (made in Turkey) or other foreign made, lower priced shotguns. But when you’ve got one of the best options made right her, the Remington 870, why not support a business in your own country, not China or Turkey!

Whether it’s the unmistakable noise of a round being chambered or the (rightly or wrongly) perceived massive stopping power, the big bore shotgun has a respected place in self defense.
The same things that make it suitable for police use make it desirable as a home protection weapon. Heavy firepower over a short range, coupled with an intimidating visual image and ease of operation.
In this article, a typical 12 gauge pump action shotgun will get a simple conversion to a home defense weapon. In this case, a Remington 870 Express, but any decent quality hunting shotgun can be drafted to house duty with a few changes.”
