    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    Nope ACT, "we have just begun to fight" to quote some swabbie. Seriously, there still remain some pertinent questions.

    Everyone that has a rifle knows that it must be sighted in.

    How many people know that a shotgun must be patterned?

    Pretty simple answer for me.... In my home for defense it's my Mossberg 500 Predator; eight rounds of 00buck plus a sidesaddle full of slugs, I pity the fool that kicks my door in. Outside in the field, it would be my S&WAR. Both have their strengths and their place in the arsenal.

    Yeah, almost like sitting around the fire shootin the bull. I like it.

    So, in that spirit, what's the opinions of the preferred shotty of choice? Action? Pros and cons of each?

    I like the pump action. You know, because at the sound of it racking all the bad guys defecate themselves and get outta Dodge.

    Nah, really just 'cause it's simple and affordable.

    I really like my double. But, I think the Mossy 500 series is a great value for the money. Especially the model with the riot and hunting barrel combo. A good working mans shotty.

    Do you keep your double loaded? I've thought about one, but I don't think any are drop safe.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I have the Coach with hammers. And yes, I keep it loaded. ( but the wife keeps it on her side)
