as recomended a pump loader or auto loader is the sensible choice. you can further accessorize the stock and grips from on line supply houses. I would see which models wally world has and then do some research for different stocks and grips for it before buying it. also the elastic spare shell holders for the stock. then you could be confident of buying it and altering it for your fit and personal need/choice.

I talked with a few people today at work who own guns. i asked them what the best gun for someone like me who has never owned a gun before but wants to protect his family if someone breaks in.
He told me to buy a mossberg shotgun 18". I was thinking before i talked to him that a small hand gun would be a good choice. He said to me what do you want to do, *censored* of the intruder or kill. It made sense to me. I have shot guns before but dont have much practice. The few times i shot i was surprisingly accurate. I know with a mossberg shotgun i would feel a lot saffer if someone broke in.
What gun do you guys prefer to use for a home invasion? Do you think a mossberg shotgun is the way to go?

Is there a lot of extras i should get with a shotgun and what kind of ammo?
I'm not much of a gun person, but I saw a nice pistol last week that I thought might be a good choice for home. It looks like a "normal" revolver, but shoots a 410 shotgun shell. It holds five shots. I thought $650 was a bit steep!

I like the idea of a mounted laser. That would be very intimidating!
