I'm taking notes on the good advice I might get on this. Or good jokes Two Questions below.
My sleep with 'Long Arm Weapon' is a Mossberg 500 with an 8 additional rounds, externally mounted to the left side receiver.
I currently load (in chamber) 3 in OO, followed by a 1 oz Slug, then the rest in the tube are 2 3/4 in 00.
On the external holder (holds 8 total), I have four 3 in 1 oz Slugs (back 4) and four 3 in 00 (in the front). I do know how to move, select, reach with the underhand to load and shoot (thank you USMC).
Just for fun, I also have a pressure switch LED mounted, and folding stock/pistol grip for CQB in the house.
What I love about this is that it was a very inexpensive investment to set up, and feels just right.
Note: I am not in a situation where I have to worry about fragging the people next door.
QUESTION 1: With a similar home defense set up, how would you recommend I adjust my loads in size, type and order of fire?
QUESTION 2: I have 3 inch Mag Sabot loads (for Bear) and should I open up with them? They will crack a car wheel.
