    A neat toy, but a waste of time and money unless you have a specific need.

    I've always contemplated a nice shorty shotty. I know the AOW's are a bit cheaper, but I think something with a 14" or 16" barrel would be really nice and balance well even for possible one handed employment with a full stock.
    Something like this 15" from Wilson Combat would be right up my alley, but that extra $200 tax stamp seems to negate the need and seriously question the want. I would however be willing to give one out of the two family manufacturing parts I have for the whole deal tax paid!

    I do have a 14" Scattergun tech. built on a old Wingmaster for work, and it is very handy weapon. That would be ideal for HD, RamRod.

    It took me a good five minutes to figure out what you were saying. At first I thought you were off your meds or something, but I finally figured it out.

    I'll just stick with my 20" barrel shottie and buy $200 worth of ammo instead.

    For home defense I can't think of anything better. Compact and easy to manuever through narrow hallways, yet packs a punch at close range. Since it's a shotgun, there's little danger of over penetration. $5.00 transfer fee is hard to beat.

    LOL! How to be tactful on the forum. I don't really see need for two anyway.

    I have one of ETS Incs AOWs for my bedroom shotgun. It hides perfectly right beside the bed. Recoil is manageable with low recoil shells.
    IMHO its a great hd shotgun
