I have been looking for a good "home defense" shotgun. I was looking for a pump, I think semi-auto is kind of pricey, and I like the scare Factor when you action a pump in an other wise quiet house. Lol I was leaning toward the Remington 870 or the Mossberg 590. I like the Mossberg that it holds 9 shells, not sure what the Remington can hold. Ive shot both and I like both of them, but Im not sure if there is something out there that is superior to these or if Im missing something. Price isnt to much of a factor, but I dont want to spend an arm and leg if I dont have to. I want something thats reliable and easy to clean and shoot.
